An excellent book
on 27 November 2009
I had read the reviews on various books relevant to the Nikon D5000 and decided that this was the best for me. I'm an ethusiastic amateur(but not very good) rather than a complete beginner, but this book would suit anyone new to DSLRs. It is easy to read from cover to cover or by picking out chapters and Jeff Revell uses a touch of humour from time to time which helps. Apart from making it easier to understand and use the functions of the D5000 it also helps me to get my head round photography generally and my technique has improved greatly even with my wife's compact Leica D Lux3! Jeff Revell writes books for other cameras and I'm guessing that they are just as helpful. If you are looking at the various options, I would put this above the "Dummies" and Magic Lantern books which I had a look at in the Library. It's also pretty cheap here on Amazon so go for it!
