    The new Nikon Experience is easy to use and most helpful.

    The Nikon D5200 Experience is very well written and easy to use. The one thing that I would complain about is the ability to refer to other pages mentioned in the text. The camera is a new release from Nikon coming into the market in the United States in mid-February 2013. I understand the book will be in print in mid-April. While the NOOK version is very helpful, I look forward to having the printed version in my hand for learning and reference.
