Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm an amateur photographer and upgraded to a D5200 a year ago so decided to review this book as the D3300 is not too far different. I also thought I'd see if it was a good book for novices as my partner is starting to learn photography.

Don't let the huge listing of contents put you off. I really don't know why authors do this but contents are not the same as an index so really shouldn't fill 6 pages! Having said that, the book is relatively easy to follow and deals with each button and setting on your Nikon so nothing is left out. However, I did find replication in a few parts and sometimes found descriptions on certain subjects was glossed over, to then find more detail in later chapters. Really it just needs better editing but the substance is there and the use of photographs on various subjects is very useful.

I found the chapter on white balance particularly interesting as well as reasons why the author uses certain settings over others so I had a play about and adjusted my camera exactly how I need it rather than guessing what some of the settings were.

Overall, I found the book useful but did wonder who this is ideally aimed at. The author states it is useful for novices to advanced amateurs but I disagree in part. I really don't think this book is appropriate to novices as it requires a basic understanding of shutter speeds and apertures which is the basic element of photography and can be hard to grasp. If you are comfortable with shutters and apertures and have used SLR's before then this is the book for you, otherwise find a book dedicated to novices.

So with a basic understanding of SLR's this book comes into it's own.

The Nikon D3300 DSLR is a feature rich entry level DSLR. It has a number auto modes, semi auto and creative modes as well as full manual. It is also very at capable at taking HD quality video. I needed a text that would help a complete novice be able to enable the user to decipher this, at times complex,camera and to achieve the best that possible results with what this very capable DSLR has to offer. I must say I was not disappointed. The book is well illustrated with photo examples, diagrams and has very well written text. This rather helpful guide walks you through, using a step by step approach through the basics, and gets you started off on the right foot. The Nikon D3300 offers full control over exposure settings, but it also includes presets and auto mode options, and it is useful to know when these are the most appropriate and when they are to be used.

This is good book that really helps the user get the best possible out of the Nikon D3300 DSLR. This is the first time I have referred to one of these field guides - but if ever I get another DSLR or SLR for that matter - I am certainly getting one of these guides to go with it.

These books are handy little guides to the workings of a DSLR, especially to a novice. For those who have some knowledge of digital cameras or comfortable with handling the many functions that DSLR’s come with these days, think of the book as a better version of the guide that comes with the camera and most likely stays in the box unread (as I’ve done with all my camera purchases).
I got the Nikon D7000 Digital Field Guide a couple of years ago to help me navigate that camera which was far more advanced than anything I’d used before. The D3300, even though it’s a lower level camera than the D7000/D7100/D7200 range is still packed to the gills with new technology (which you’d have found in the more expensive models not long ago). The main draw for me was the video capability, the D3300 now can shoot full 1080/50P which is remarkable for such a low price. have been using the D3300 in and out of the office, shooting small videos and it's handy to have a paper reference about to answer any questions.
Anyway, this is a good book to keep at hand to get the most out of your camera.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I wanted this book as I'd purchased a Nikon P90 bridge camera as a way of getting back into photography now i'm middle aged.I was into photography in my youth but camera equipment,35mm film and the cost of developing photos were dropped when marriage,babies and a mortgage kicked in.The book is useful for my P90 as a lot of the controls and menu's are similar.However,as I intend to move up a notch with my equipment and was looking to buy a D3300,i saw this book as an opportunity to find out what the camera can do.Initially,the book appeared to be a glossier,posher version of the instruction manual you receive with a camera.It isn't!The book offers tips and examples of how to take better photographs and it comes across as written by a guy who genuinely wants to help people takes better photo's.I was amazed at what the D3300 has to offer.I honestly believe Nikon could do worse than offer a copy of this genre of book with every camera sold.Imho,it's a must have,is a bargain price and exceptionally good.I can't recommend it highly enough.

I love these field guides, and I always make a bee line for one when I get a new camera.
They are - in theory - simply an 'adjunct' to the manual that came with the camera. In reality they are an excellent introduction to the whole business of photography - and not just an introduction to the camera named on the cover.
Of course, this book is a great introduction to the many features of the new Nikon D3300, but it also shows you some of the stuff you would almost certainly miss even if you did read the manual from cover to cover.
There is a good section on the movie making potential of this camera, and there is a simple explanation of file types and how they differ. It also covers the new stuff - like HDR painting, and has an OK glossary to get you talking 'photo-speak' like a pro!
Obviously, all the camera controls are in there, but there is so much else that it is almost worth buying one book just to learn some useful fundamentals of photography.
I bought one for my Canon Rebel, and before that my Sony A100, and passed both handbooks on to my daughter along with the cameras.
They are a cheap and fairly 'no-nonsense' way to learn about pretty much everything you will ever need to know how to do with the camera.
