A thorough guide by one of the best possible authors,
This review is from: David Busch's Nikon D3200 Guide to Digital SLR Photography (David Busch's Digital Photography Guides) (Paperback)
David Busch has written guides such as this for several Nikon models and others of different brands. He has also authored several more general photographic titles and is one of the few authors of camera guides who is able to provide authoritative and comprehensive alternative manuals for their users. I have one or more within both groups of books.
Although not of an easily recognisable series in the sense that the 'For Dummies' titles are, this is one of a loose series that covers far more cameras of many different brands than does any other remotely comparable. Although not intended to replace the camera's own manual, but to add to it, it does include just about everything included in the original guide.
Included within its coverage are the camera's controls and its menus, several images that illustrate its possible uses and then explores its many accessories including the optional lenses, filters and flash guns. When explaining the camera features and controls, it often provides a more detailed explanation than the original manual is able to.
Although I had recommended an alternative title to someone who had just bought the camera, I shall add this to the short-list and leave the final choice to her.
A highly recommended choice.
