    Beats reading the factory owners manual

    I received Corey Hilz' book after owning my Nikon D90, 5 days. I would read the Nikon manual in the evenings and it would put me to sleep for the night. I really had a hard time getting through it. Mr. Hilz book has all the same technical information in an easy read style. It was a very well explained and a good help. I had one issue when it came to bracketing exposures. The book told me all about what was happening but not the steps to take. Well, I guess I was to anxious. If I had read further in the book, it was all laid out. I just couldn't wait to get out there and start collecting images. In all, I was very satisfied with the results. The book will continue to be a good reference, as I need to use some functions over time to solidify it in my memory.

    READS SO MUCH EASIER THAN THE ACTUAL MANUAL

    After referring to this book to learn to use my Nikon D90, it truly communicates so much better than the manual. I am a beginner photog and I need words and pictures to show and tell.
    This book shows and tells.
    I give this book an A for communicating, reference and to-do guide.
