The book is excellent 5* if you know what you are getting. So if you are a hobbiest photographer who want to know your recently bought D90 in more depth and want to know very quickly about overal basics of photography and accessories and lenses related to D90 and their general use to improve your skills, then this is an excellent resource to start with. After reading this you dont need to buy anyother D90 specific book or manual. This will explain your camera in all depth and tell you how to use it effectively, later you should be able to develop your skills with time, passion and practice, and the foundations you will learn from this little colorful hand book.

However, this book doesnt cover all art, theories, tips and tricks of Digital photography (which you should not expect to get from a camera specific book) and is good enough for beginners and medium levels and not for an expert Digital Photographer, in which case I would give it 4*. Though once again, this should not be expected to be an expert guide.

Book is also in excellent quality color print.

I bought this book based on a few reviews but wish I'd taken more notice of Colin Birchnall's "ENDEVOUR" review.

The book is exactly as he says 'an extended manual' I trawled through this book thinking, there's bound to be some pearls of wisdom from a pro on using this camera, but no. There's some good advice on general photography like buy a diffuser for the built in flash or get a speed light if you can afford it, what lenses are considered good buys etc. A section on lighting which is good, but actual info on specifically using the d90 there's very little.

Out of the 268 plus pages I'd say over 168+ are general photography principles (very good advice, I may say.)and the remainder being slightly extended descriptions of the manual with the author tagging a sporadic sentence regarding the d90 on the end.

The author is obviously a serious pro and knows his stuff, but as a new d90 owner I was expecting more insight and left being almost non the wiser than after reading the manual, certainly disappointed, and therefore I can't recommend it.

This book is far more informative than any other i own. It not only explains the D90 but other issues such as lenses, techniques and the Nikon CLS. Great Book. Exceptional Value.

The Nikon D90 has a LOT of functionality. This book not only gets at the heart of the camera but goes further on the subjects of things like lenses, lighting and so on.

The whole book is in full colour too, unlike others I have seen. If you have bought a D90, this book should be your first choice.

Fantastic - 5* from me.

i have looked at the reviews of this book and for the life of me can not uderstand how they can praise it so highly ! the book is absolutley useless to me. all it does is telll you WHAT things are and WHERE they are. THATS IT !!!!!!! NO real practical info, i dont just want to know where the ISO button is, i want to KNOW HOW TO USE IT!!!!!!!! im a beginner and i need to be spoon fed infomation. this book is a real let down, and really its just an expanded user mannual, ive not picked it up for days now and i dont think i ever will agian.

how sad is that !!!!!!!!

Well laid out with colour pages in quality paper, but not much more use than the hopeless Nikon Manual

Does what it says on the tin - some extraneous material (for me - your mileage may differ) but simple and clear and helped get me up and running very quickly with my D90.

Recommended!
