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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Informative 22 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An excellent publication giving detailed information and useful 'how to' instructions.Beats pressing buttons and then trying to figure out what you have done. Although many years experience of SLR photography Digital is new to me and very different. Very useful to old fogies such as myself.
