You've read the excellent technical Nikon D5100 Manual now read the "real user's" view,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikon D5100 For Dummies (Paperback)
This book brings to life the (otherwise excellent) dry description in Nikon's online manual
What I really like are the suggestions of setting combinations that the author has found to be most useful - she also suggests areas for experimentation.
See my fuller review of the Dummies D3100 book by the same author . Obviously there is some duplication but JAK also highlights the new areas / opportunitiie offered by the D5100
I had the D3100 camera / book for some 3 years then invested in this book and a D5100 ( body only) this year ( late 2013)
