The first 40% of the book is a more colourful, in-depth, helpful version of a Nikon manual. There are colour pictures and notes highlighting what the author is referring to. Owners of Nikon D70 and D70s can relate to this book well. The book is written more for the amateur or beginner photographer who has the D70. This is evident in the first couple of chapters.
The first chapter is a quick guide on the functions & features of the camera and what these do and when to use them.
The second chapter focuses more on settings of the camera. This is ideal for novices who want to explore the camera but don't know what each of the functions do. The writer provides tips on exposure, shutter, metering, focusing, flash, lens selection and flash selection.
The other 60% of the book focuses on taking pictures. This is where the book becomes another photography book but the best thing is Nikon D70 users can relate to it. There are lots of example pictures taken by the author which he goes onto explain how he took them and what equipment he used. All this information is laid out in a clear table with set-up, lens, lighting, exposure & camera settings. These examples are useful for inspiration. The author also does a great job using 'kit' lenses with his example, this I thought was very sensible as most people will have a kit lens to start off.
Overall the book is ideal for your camera bag as a reference and a quick guide to your Nikon and you will be able to relate to majority of the topics and examples covered.

I browsed the pages of digital books, reading reviews and not being able to make up my mind. Then I spotted this book and thought 'Why not'. As it turned out an excellent choise, the book covers many aspects of the manual, but then go's on to explain how to apply them, it gives tips on various aspects of photography and when and when not to use the various functions of the camera. If you are new to the Nikon D70 like I am this book is a must have.

I bought this book, on spec from Amazon a couple of years ago, because I found the accompanying manual difficult to read. It was small writing, and often confusing, I had to read the paragraphs several times to really understand it.

This book, in some ways isn't much better. However, I find it easier to read, as it is slightly more chatty. The text size is also more readable.

However, I tend to keep it in the camera bag, as a source of reference. As such it is useful to have on holidays etc. Then if yo need to refresh your memory the information is there. Also I ahve used it as a time waster when waiting for flights, or passing time at the pool etc.

So over all, nothing more than a glorified manual, but for the money worthwhile. His tips on photography, are also worthy to read if you are new to photography.

I personally found this book to be an invaluable resource.

It is always in my camera bag, and i do mean always, if im out in the field and need to figure out the best settings for a situation then i just quickly pop this out, and bobs your uncle perfect settings, for perfect pictures.

Yes its quite manualish but then if your new to the DSLR game and the nikon d70 is your 1st DSLR like mine was it was perfect for me.

Obviously if your looking for a more comprehensive guide then i suggest Nikon D70 (The Expanded Guide)

I have both and use this one more, but i think its down to individual preference.

This makes the camera a whole lot easier to use and get great photos.
It shows you what everything does and how and why to use it.
This is old gear now, but a good guide is always useful.

Most of this guide is an uplift from the D70 camera manual. There are little pointers that can help but not many. Would consider a practicle guide to digital photography book rather than this guide.
