What Readers are Saying about 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.
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.
This manual is a clearly written, concise and useful explanation of the rationale for the seemingly infinite and often confusing settings options for the D7000. Used in conjunction with the Nikon manual I feel a bit more confident in understanding how to at last proceed in getting better photographs.
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.
