WHAT READERS ARE SAYING about Doug's previous e-book camera guides:

It's clear, concise and gets to the heart of the camera's multiple and often confusing options. Very highly recommended - for experienced user and beginner alike.
-GSA

I read it from front to back in one sitting, playing with the camera as I went along, and I found it covered all the major things I was having trouble with. The author writes clearly and concisely, and his approach is accessible and friendly.
-Jay M.

This guide is very useful for beginners to experienced users. This book is written in a human way by an experienced photographer who gives you the tips you need to create a beautiful picture.
-Oliver

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.

Great manual! This book made it much easier to operate my new Nikon D5100. It basically expands on the manual that comes with the camera and tells you what each setting is and what you should set it at. Highly recommended!
-GK

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.
