Top customer reviews
Despite my phobia of instruction manuals and guides, I have really enjoyed studying all the useful information in this book. I would certainly recommend this book to any new D80 owner (or to a D80 owner who wants to polish up on their photography skills). It not only gets into the nitty-gritty of the D80 but also provides a great introduction to photogrpahy in general.
Written with a god portion of humor, reading this field guide is a pleasure. It gives you a clear impression of the camera's functions and possibilities which is superior to the factory manual's confusing references back and forth. In addition it will give the beginners in photography an insight in the photographic terms like apertures, ISO, exposure etc. Even relatively experienced amateur photogaphers will gain a lot of valuable information reading this book. Great value for money!
It is clearly the intention of the authors that this book should be a true field guide as it will easily fit in most larger camera bags as a quick reference. However I personally am content to read this well written book at home and absorb its wise words at my leisure, rather than rifle through it when trying to take a difficult shot on location.
In short this book really delivers.
