I have just purchased my first Nikon camera, the D3200, and read about the benefit of the book Nikon D3200 for Dummies, so I looked it over and then purchased it also.
One of the best moves ever made, I have been into photography for thirty years but still found this book had so much to teach me about my new camera.
In layman's terms if you want to know about this camera, get yourself this book.

I love these books for "DUMMIES" and this one is no exception. I am now a pensioner but I do have a technical back ground, having spent many years building and repairing digital gaming machines. I'm not a new comer to photography either. But having just brought my first DSLR camera and struggling for a few days with the camera manual I thought it wise to buy an easy to read introduction to my camera.

This book is a very easy to read and comprehend guide to the Nikon 3200 DSLR camera, it's beautifully illustrated and logically laid out. The author Julie King makes the point very early on in the book that the user can use the camera in a point and shoot mode right from the off and get into the more technical and artistic aspects of the camera later on as their knowledge and experience grows. The book is much more than just a reference manual, I have started at page 1 and I'm reading through the whole book so that I don't miss a single detail of my camera no matter how small. The book is packed with interesting information presented by someone who clearly has a great in-depth knowledge of cameras and photography.

This is a great book in the " for DUMMIES" series, and don't be put off buy the title. It's an interesting, easy to read, comprehensive guide to the Nikon D3200. A great guide for experienced photographers and for novices, both young and old. Remember you're never too old to learn a new subject no matter how technical it is and that's the purpose of books like this one.

I have nothing but praise for the content of this book and I've learned a lot about how to us my new camera BUT I regret buying the Kindle version. Not only would the paperback be of more practical use to allow you to easily flick back and forth while using the camera but the content simply isn't optimised for the display. Most of the diagrams and tables are too small to read. A real shame because it's very informative and written in a lively, easy to follow style.

the style of writing is perfect for a digital novice like me and with the comprehensive tips and help I am sure that it will not be long until I can migrate to this form of photography without too many mishaps.

Far superior to Nikon's manual. Not my first venture with an SLR but I have tended to use auto mode in point and shoot mode before. Book really encourages you to experiment with more creative modes. Have had book for about a month now and have only read first 4 chapters and am re-reading those at present. I will move on to the more complex sections once I have finished the re-read.
