Nikon D3100: From Snapshots to Great Shots,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikon D3100: From Snapshots to Great Shots (Paperback)
There are lots of Nikon D3100 manuals and guides and I wouldn't like to say this is better than any of the others but I did download samples of the Kindle editions, where they were available, and made my choice based on that.
Some of the 'Field guides' look good but who can be bothered lugging a book around with them.
Nikon D3100: From Snapshots to Great Shots doesn't try to be a technical manual but what it does do is relate the D3100's features to real life use and shows you how to get the best from the camera's many options.
The book itself is a very good quality paperback with high res images and it is written in a clear but not condescending style. It does assume that if you've coughed up for a relatively expensive camera you are bright enough not to need every tiny point explained in minute detail.
If you just want a technical manual stick with the pdf that is on the CD-Rom that came with your camera.
Overall I'd say if you want something to help you get a better understanding of how to actually use your D3100 to take better photos you can't go wrong with this book.
