Then open this book and find your way around the extensive features that this 'beginners' dSLR offers. The book is well written with multiple supporting illustrations. It quickly unravels some of what seem at first complicated menus and sub menus.
I quickly found out as an example how to limit the ISO rating the camera uses on ISO Auto, I won't tell you here, you'll have to buy the book!!! but it solved for me the issue of noise that had crept into some of my pictures when using ISO auto.
Again quickly found out how to switch off the graphic representation of the shooting settings and get it to a 'classic' setting more akin to what would appear on a LCD menu had the D40 had one. This is essential for any one who bemoans the loss of the LCD screen settings on the D40.
This book is certainly a must have for any d40 user - certainly any one using one for the first time.
If there is any down side it is the book size making it a tad of a challenge to use 'in the field' but if it was any smaller it probably wouldn't be as easy to read and follow as it is.
It's a very useful book for anyone new to digital photography, it explains the different functions and shows you around the way the camera works etc.
A real godsend for anyone who has previously been using film SLR cameras.
I would say all in all it is a very useful book for anyone using the NIKON D40/D40X.
The book covers a whole range of what you can do with this camera, from lens, lighting, shutter speeds, trouble shooting, to transfering pictures to your PC and lots of other things you can do with this camera.
A handy size book that you can have with you in your camera bag to use as a reference as and when you need to.
Did I need it when I have the camera manual? yes.
I have read the camera manual a number of times and I understand how the camera works pretty well, I know how to change things but not why I should change them.
This book tells you why you should, for example, change the white balance, why you should sharpen your pictures.
The book is well worth purchasing and reading, I leave the book in the car so that I can browse it when I have some spare moments
