What Readers are Saying about Doug's previous guide, Nikon D7000 Experience:

This book, together with the manual that came with your camera, is all you need to start discovering the full potential of the D7000.
-Max M.

It’s the first guide I've read which has taken me through all the settings in an understandable way. I now feel that I have control over the camera.
-Peter S.

I found the Nikon manual good for understanding how to set things up but not much on the why - this book really focuses on the "why."
-Benoit A.

Very highly recommended for experienced user and beginner alike.
-GSA

I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get a quick start to using the D7000. This eBook highlights the important information and gives a quick, easy to understand explanation of most all of the functions and controls.
