4.0 out of 5 stars Good reference guide for D70 & D70s owners, 21 Mar. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikon D70 Digital Field Guide (Paperback)
The first 40% of the book is a more colourful, in-depth, helpful version of a Nikon manual. There are colour pictures and notes highlighting what the author is referring to. Owners of Nikon D70 and D70s can relate to this book well. The book is written more for the amateur or beginner photographer who has the D70. This is evident in the first couple of chapters.
The first chapter is a quick guide on the functions & features of the camera and what these do and when to use them.
The second chapter focuses more on settings of the camera. This is ideal for novices who want to explore the camera but don't know what each of the functions do. The writer provides tips on exposure, shutter, metering, focusing, flash, lens selection and flash selection.
The other 60% of the book focuses on taking pictures. This is where the book becomes another photography book but the best thing is Nikon D70 users can relate to it. There are lots of example pictures taken by the author which he goes onto explain how he took them and what equipment he used. All this information is laid out in a clear table with set-up, lens, lighting, exposure & camera settings. These examples are useful for inspiration. The author also does a great job using 'kit' lenses with his example, this I thought was very sensible as most people will have a kit lens to start off.
Overall the book is ideal for your camera bag as a reference and a quick guide to your Nikon and you will be able to relate to majority of the topics and examples covered.
