This book is like an exaggerated manual, pulling in lots of extra bits of information and tips you didnít know about the D3000. The book's really easy to follow but it does have the feel and look of a school text book and it sometimes feels like youíre spoke to as if youíre a school kid. But this aside, it is crammed full of information and by the end of it, youíll end up knowing how to use your Nikon D3000. The images are not award-winning but they break the text up nicely and support the i...
This guide tells you everything you need to know about exposure then goes onto explain how the knowledge can be applied to everyday photographic situations. The book is detailed and rather in-depth but this doesnít mean itís one for the experts! The guideís easy to understand, simple to follow and gives even the beginner an insight into the world of exposure. The book could be read all the way through in one go but the nicely headed sections mean itís one you can pick up and put down as yo...
This guide is small, compact, and quick to read and as a result, itís lacking in depth. Donít get me wrong, a lotís covered in not too many pages but its quick snap-shots of information which not everyone will find useful. The book is well written and the layout makes it easy to follow. It features useful diagrams and the language isnít over complicated so flows well and is good for those new to photography. The size of the book also means itís perfect to take out with you, a time when a g...

The title of the book tells no lies, this really is a most basic photography guide. It covers all basic points Ė it even says you can delete images off a digital cameras!

This book is a slightly larger manual which will teach you all about your camera but not how to take better photographs. The language is simple enough to understand and the font, size of text and layout make the book easy to read. The images and all of the text is black and white which makes the book a little boring and sometimes hard to see. Overall, it's a good reference book it's just a shame about the black and white images.
If you look at a manual and just get confused you need to take a look at this book. It isn't the nicest looking book in the world but it does give you the information needed to use your camera correctly. The style the book is written in and the size of the text make the book easy to read and it's small enough to carry in your bag. It's a shame the images are black and white as some are lacking in detail and others are not as clear as they would be in colour. Apart from this, it's a useful ...
