4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but..., 8 Aug 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikon D200 Digital Field Guide (Paperback)
I recently bought the D200 and read the instruction book (included) cover to cover and found it easy to read and understand and had the camera working in no time at all. A few years ago I purchased the F5 and for the fun of it bought a Magic Lantern guide, it didn't really cover any more than I had learnt in the F5 manual.

So it was with trepidation that I ventured down the path of an other guide dedicated to a specific camera! I am of mixed mind...

Part 1 covers nothing really new, that I didn't know in the manufacturers guide! It is printed better and clearer to read, but that is as should be...

Part 1 continues to cover a little more, but again nothing that can't be read between the lines of the manual!

So I am at Part 2 on page 75 and I haven't learnt much that I didn't know before! Part 2 has info on Essentials, exposure DofF and HISTOGRAMS, helpful! All about lenses, ok, Working with light, prob have that in another book, and Photo Subjects. Again this is probably in other photo books but it is useful here and has over 100 pages dedicated to this subject!

Part 3 is troubleshooting and is only a few pages, so that is a plus point really!! It mentions dust removal and equipment to use!

There is a glossary at the back!

I will keep this book on the 100 pages of photo subjects and it has a few pages of useful info here and there, but I won't get another guide of its kind because I don't see the point! All the additional info is most probably available in other books and the included guide covers pretty much everything this does, shame.....

I have read other books by Busch and plan to check out some others, so the author can't be criticized, he knows his cameras!
