Top Customer Reviews
There are pages of sample photos with in depth explanations of how each aspect of every picture was created. The author knows his stuff and seems to have enjoyed using the D60 to take some excellent example photographs.
The menus and buttons/switches on the camera are all explained in easy to understand terminology and I recommend this book to anyone who has bought the D60 and is new to DSLR photography. It's much easier to understand and more enjoyable to read than the rather boring black and white manual the camera came with.
If all you want to do is learn what all the buttons do, then don't bother buying this. The same info is contained in the comprehensive manual that came with your camera.
If you're looking to learn better photography, then there are better, more detailed manuals and books on this subject available.
If however you're looking for a small book, that you can take with you that will allow you to refresh your memory on the cameras functions, or what's the right way to set up a shot, and what kinds of lens to pick for a given style of photography, and reminders for all those other things its easy to forget, then this book's invaluable when you are out and about.
Small enough that it will easily fit in your camera bag, yet detailed enough and organised properly so that you can make better shots on the fly, this will help you make the most of your D60.
After a few years of using compact digitals, I missed my old 35mm SLRs, and plumped for the D-60 as a light but full-featured camera that is well-built, has a nice weight and is an excellent entry into the world of high-quality digital photography.
The Field guide is like a manual-plus in that it covers all the knobs-and-dials bits, then has much more detailed tips and reminders as to how to get the best out of the kit.
A bargain at the price, penned by an enthusiast who obviously likes the camera itself, and all in full colour. An easy way to learn your way about with this fairly complex tool, and delivered in a remarkable 36hrs.
Best decision ever. Not only did it explain all the setttings and functions but it also supplies a myriad of helpful photography hints.
Being a total amatuer these were very helpful and improved my shots overnight.
If you need help with the D60 or just want to improve your photography a little this book is perfect.
The main reason for buying the book was to find a quick solution to fix the camera should it not work or to reset the camera to the default settings if needed and the book did help. This book is not a replacement manual however it covers items like `white balance' and `noise' and explains this in plain simple easy to understand language.
This book is not just a Nikon D60 manual but it is also a camera book that covers accessories and picture composition, gives examples of sport, portrait, landscape, close-up shots. It covers focusing also manual focusing and Nikon lenses should you ever need to use them. Also covers lighting in great detail and covers different type of flash units (speedlights) and the benefits of bounce flash.
There are other field guides on the Nikon D60 out there but I think this book is an ideal guide
The book in some ways mirrors the user manual, but then goes further, explaining in more detail and easier to follow steps the various modes and functions of the camera.
Will be useful as a reference source for a long time.
If you want to learn about photography and how the D60 can help you turn snap shots into great pics, this is not the right book for you ... or me :o(
