This is really 2 books bound together: a technical manual and some advice about taking photos. It is nicely laid out, generally clear (except the layout pics, which attempt to display a black camera on a black background. However, it is difficult to work out just who this is meant for. The sections on lenses, filters etc are perfectly good, but are not linked to the D200 in particular, so they could appear in any SLR manual (and are not really up to the standard of mags like 'Digital Camera').

The technical section is where I have the biggest gripe, however. The principal problem is that the numbers on the layouts are never referred to in the text, (unlike the D200 manual, which labels the controls with page numbers). Worse, the text and the layout diagram uses slightly different terms for the same control, for example: The "AE/AF-lock button" on page 13 becomes the "Focus lock" on page 51. No problem for an expert, but not what you want when you are trying to use a new camera with lots of controls with confusing names. A further clue that new users are not the intended readers is that the section on the Setup menu is on page 104. My guess is that the technical section was drafted by a technical expert at Nikon then polished up by public relations people: there are lots of references to the D200 "boasting" features, as in "The Nikon D200 boasts the user friendly...". Replacing "has" with "boasts" is PR lesson 101. Even more annoying, they could not resist throwing in advertsing copy such as "Nikon have long been renowned for the accuracy of their metering system" (page 38). Maybe true, but do they really think anyone is going to buy the book who has not already decided to buy the camera?.

I expected this book to be a step further from Nikon's owner manual; it was not. As a substitute user manual it is a glossier, more attractive publication. This guide book contains less hard information than Nikon's manual, without providing much deeper info in any single area.

I brought a d200 as a 2nd camera to use, but on reflection - this is now my main camera. This book is just what I needed to detail the areas of the camera I didn't know.

Great book,perfect condition, good delivery what more can one say. thanks.Whislt the camera is a little dated the quality and functions need a book like this for a relatively inexperienced photographer seeking decent shots.

Format: Paperback
you would imagine that a book on a camera wriiten by a photographer would have useful stuff about how the photographer uses the camera - but no. If you have the manual then the first half of the book is just a re-edited version, albeit slightly easier to read but offering no more value at all. the rest has some nice pics from Ross but no great insights into how he got the best out of the camera. in short a waste of money and hugely dissapointing and dare I say it rather insulting. I suspect there are few people who have bought a D200 as their first step in photography yet this is the tone throughout. As suggested, get Ken Rockwell for free or spend a similar amount on Thom Hogan's e book.
