Format: Paperback
i would have appreciated this book more if it had concentrated on the working of the D5100 and not on the basics of photography. i already have those skills and would appreciate a more camera-based book (as its title implies).

I was hoping to read, learn and how to get the best use of the new features of the D5100, such as the swivelling screen, the high dynamic range, the amazing ISO performance and the high resolution movie mode. But this book misses them all out! Very disappointing.
It does describe the 'menu' items quite thoroughly, but this information is in the Nikon manuals anyway.
There is some specific D5100 information in the 2 supplement web-based chapters, but these can be accessed by anybody without buying the book!
Apart from the 'menu' descriptions, this is a generic book which, in my opinion, could apply to any Nikon camera. None of the example photos are credited to a D5100 and I got the distinct impression that the author hadn't even used the camera.
For me, the title is misleading and the book is a complete waste of money and space.

I've been a keen photographer for over 35 years and have used many SLR and DLSR cameras over the years. But I wanted to ensure I got the most out of my new Nikon D5100, so bought this. It's written in a friendly informative manner which would be an excellent introduction for beginners as well as anyone new to this model. I can't praise it highly enough - buy it!!

Like the other reviews, this is good as a general account of how to use an DSLR but not really specific to the D5100.

It does go through some of the new automatic controls but then says to not use them anyway!

If you want a clear account of how to take better picture with a DSLR then I think its quite good. If you want to learn some new tricks with your D5100 - dont bother!

This book is full of tips to make your camera work for you not just especially for the newcomer to DSLR, I would imagine it's got a lot for the more proficient photographer. I am thoroughly enjoying working my way through, reinforcing my little knowledge with the hands on exercise at the end of each chapter. Well worth buying and specific to the D5100

I'd been using a Canon 40D for a few years before getting my D5100 so I bought this more for enjoyment than to learn anything new. But if you've read your D5100 manual and want to go beyond the snapshot level, this book is a good first step.

I didn't purchase this book from amazon, but got it for a similar price. Being new to DSLR photgraphy, I found the user guide included with the camera way too complicated. This book starts out with the most basic features of the camera, including what each button/dial does, progressing through to the more complex features and photgraphic techniques. Text is clear and simple and includes some nice sample pictures to illustrate each function. I find myself referring back to it constantly and the fact that it is specific to the D5100 makes it invaluable. My only criticism is that it is quite large to take out and about with you to refer to as you take pictures.. a pocket version would be great.

I read this book after reading the d5100 for dummies... and this proved to be a good step forward in photography. It covers d5100 functionality, however it focuses more on the 'artistic side'.

Good choice, value and time spent reading it really worth
