I have hummed and harred about whether to give three or four stars to this, settling eventually on four as three would suggest average, and the book will certainly remain useful for a long time. It is also very detailed.

What it is very good at is describing the function of every single setting and button of this particular model (including that of accessories such as flash, which you may not even have yet). So as a go-to manual it will be always be very useful. However this style is not dissimilar to the official manual from Nikon (but way more accessible as it's in paperback format, not the cumbersome A4 version). Bearing in mind the D3100 is an entry level DSLR, I would have liked to have seen more in the way of how to use the many camera features to take better pictures in certain conditions and effects, more generic guidance ironically. There are plenty of 'hints' interspersed but many of these are functional.

So as an aide-memoir to this particular model and all its settings, this is good. As an accompaniment to someone looking to move up from compact cameras to DSLRs and needing a bit of photographic assistance, it's not so good.

HASH(0x962d5a20) out of 5 stars Awesome guide! 21 Jan. 2013
By SK480 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've had my D3100 for about a year now, bought this book about 5 months ago, and am so glad I did!
I had a pretty good basic understanding of DSLR's, but there are so many features and settings on
these cameras, I felt there was a lot I was missing. This book is great, easy to read and understand,
full of great tips and advice. Every time I pick it up I learn something new! Highly recommended!

HASH(0x962d5c48) out of 5 stars This will explain in detail how to use your camera's features. 24 May 2013
By J. Russell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Aren't camera's instructions among the most frustrating things in the world today to have to deal with? They're unclear (many times I think because they are written by non-native English speakers) and incomplete when all you want to know is, "What does this button do?"

You must get a Magic Lantern Guide for whatever type of camera you own!

It will take you step-by-step through every single button and function of your camera; explain what each setting on your camera does and why; and much much more.

If you're frustrated at the incomplete instructions that come with your camera and you want to learn what all those buttons, dials, and commands do, and you want to feel more confident using the features of your camera in order to help you take better photographs then these are the guides you need.

It will open up a whole world of pleasurable camera use for you and help to make you a better photographer as a result.
