What Readers are Saying about the author's previous Nikon guides:

This is the most helpful manual I've ever used. No serious Nikon user should be without this. I find myself referring back to this book quite often - very easy to find what I need and even easier to understand.

It's clear, concise and gets to the heart of the camera's multiple and often confusing options. Very highly recommended - for experienced user and beginner alike.

A well written, professional helpful guide - Exciting, clear to follow, has examples and is by a professional who gives just the right amount of technical info with explanations of why and when to use those settings, all properly explained. The book is well thought through and well written.
