    If you are new to the Nikon D80 then I recommend this book

    I tried reading the user manual that came with the Nikon D80 camera, which I purchased used, but like most manufacture’s manuals, it was difficult no follow, cryptic at times, and short on detail. I search Barns and Noble for books on the Nikon D80 and found several, but I have always enjoyed the Magic Lantern series, so that was the pick. The book’s author, Simon Stafford, leads you through the use of the camera by first providing an overview of the D80’s features then provides a chapter by chapter description of the many features and operations of the camera. When reading the book from the beginning to end, there is much duplication in information, but to be fair, it is a guide, not a novel. The different chapters describe the many modes that camera can be operated in from full automatic, semi-automatic, to full manual, so some duplication is expected. In addition, Simon Stafford provides his own insights into the camera including his own likes and dislikes of the D80 but also includes suggestions as to how to overcoming some of these short comings of the camera and accessories. The chapters on how the auto focus and the color engine work are very technical and may be too complex for the amateur reader, but for the professional it provides valuable insight into the camera’s operation. If you are new to the Nikon D80 and want to know all there is to know about its operation then I recommend this book be the one you purchase. Especially considering its reasonable cost and the amount of content squeezed into a compact 7.5 by 5 inch size, which allows it to fit into your camera bag.
