The Nikon D90 is the long-awaited upgrade to the popular D80 digital SLR. The D90 sits between the D60 and D300 in Nikon's DSLR lineup, though many of its features come from its more expensive sibling.

Each chapter explores the features and capabilities of the D90 in detail, surpassing basic user manuals by providing step-by-step menu setting adjustments coupled with illustrations and logical explanations for each option. Darrell Young's writing style allows the reader to follow directions in a friendly and informative manner, as if a friend dropped in to share his experienced knowledge without "talking down" to you, explaining the how and the why.

This is a great book that is well laid out and easy to understand. It has lots of colour illustrations of the camera and its menus, as well as the many example photographs from other Nikonians. These are its greatest strengths. Good value for money. While not as comprehensive as some, it focuses heavily on navigating the menus and explaining the basics of what each control does. From that perspective, I think that it is well suited for the beginning DSLR user as opposed to the experienced amateur or professional.

I learned a lot from this book. Not only did it help me with things relevant to my new camera but the author also explained a lot of the general theory involved in digital photography. I would have felt that I got my money's worth even if I did not own a Nikon D90.

I have had my D90 for several years. It is loaded with more capability than I knew how to use. This is the third book I have purchased on the D90 and it is by far the best. The book takes you through all the menus in much greater detail than the owner's manual. It explains all the many capabilities of this great camera. The author explains things in an easy to understand manner and offers many very good tips. For an amateur photographer like me this book is a must have. I will keep it in my camera bag to help me get the most out of my D90. It's a great book for a great camera!

I did not pay enough attention to the description. I was looking for a hard copy, it is for a nook which I do not own.

I use this book as a learning tool for my cameral. For that purpose it is great with considerable detail and information not provided by the camera manufacturer.
