    This is a MUST have

    I received my Nokon 1/V1 camera as a gift. Loved it...BUT found the manual overwhelming. Ms. King takes you step by step through EVERYTHING you need to know. She separates the "technical" from the "tips" - and her hints are a great bonus. I am literally reading it cover to cover....and learning the fabulous ability of this great little camera. Worth every penny!!!
