Excellent book with lots of useful general advice and tips for anyone new to photography. It really comes into its own when applying this information to specific settings and actions for the Nikon Coolpix P600. The author has fully utilised all of the useful features that this camera has, and gives advice in simple and importantly for a novice, understandable language.
For Example :
I spent a lot of time researching which camera to buy and narrowed it down to the P600 and the Canon SX50. In the end it came down to handling both and the P600 just felt "right" to hold. A feature that the SX50 had and was praised by most reviewers, was the quick zoom in and back out again if using a long telephoto setting where you may have lost sight of your subject,and which I would have found useful.
Nobody mentioned that the secondary zoom in/out control on the lens barrel of the P600 can be re-assigned to provide this, which Nikon call the "snap back" feature. The book explains how easy it is to set this up.
If you have a P600 or are thinking of getting one, then buy this book for tablet or PC. Would not use it on a non colour E reader as you will not get the benefit of the many colour photo examples throughout the book. Highly recommended
