5.0 out of 5 stars Nikon for Dummies 18 Nov 2012
By fagan
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have just purchased my first Nikon camera, the D3200, and read about the benefit of the book Nikon D3200 for Dummies, so I looked it over and then purchased it also.
One of the best moves ever made, I have been into photography for thirty years but still found this book had so much to teach me about my new camera.
In layman's terms if you want to know about this camera, get yourself this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book but not good on Kindle 21 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have nothing but praise for the content of this book and I've learned a lot about how to us my new camera BUT I regret buying the Kindle version. Not only would the paperback be of more practical use to allow you to easily flick back and forth while using the camera but the content simply isn't optimised for the display. Most of the diagrams and tables are too small to read. A real shame because it's very informative and written in a lively, easy to follow style.
