Bought the book in order to helps out with my new camera. I'm a newbie when it comes to DSLR cameras so this would be the perfect book for me and it did not disappoint. Very thorough explanation of everything and how to use all the different features of the camera.

As all "Dummies" books are, this is a great way to get started in using this camera. Easy to understand and is much easier to follow than the camera's manual, if you are not familiar with digital SLR's. The author gives tips and her recommendations for settings, which really is helpful.

The Nikon D3300 DSLR is a feature rich entry level DSLR. It has a number auto modes, semi auto and creative modes as well as full manual. It is also very at capable at taking HD quality video.

I needed a text that would help a complete novice and enable the user to decipher this, at times complex camera, and to achieve the best possible results - with what is very is a capable DSLR. This book has a lot to offer. I must say I was not disappointed. It does not assume you know anything about DSLR format of camera, but is also not patronising in its delivery. The Nikon D3300 for Dummies is well explained with photograph examples, illustrations and has very well written text, all which is done in a reader friendly manner. The full-colour book format is really helpful here. The Dummies guide walks you through, using a gradually methodology through the fundamentals, and gets you started off on the right foot. The Nikon D3300 offers full control over exposure settings, but it also includes presets and auto mode options, and it is very useful to know when these are the most appropriate to be used.

This is good book that really helps the user get the best possible out of the Nikon D3300 DSLR. This is the first time I have referred to one of these Dummies guides for cameras - but if ever I get another DSLR or SLR for that matter - I am certainly getting one of these editions to go with it.

We bought the Nikon D3300 camera and this to go with it. I haven't read the entire thing yet, but the parts I've ready have been extremely helpful. My husband loves it too, and he already knew how to use the camera since he uses it at work...he said there are some great tips and more detailed instructions in this book to really help you learn how to use all of the settings. Would recommend if you own the camera to get this too!

Well written and easy to navigate on my Kindle Fire. Information was understandable to a newbie to DSLR cameras. Love the camera, too.

Nikkon D3300 was my first SLR camera. Coming from point and shoot cameras, I was going to need all the help I can get with the SLR camera. This book has been very helpful on understanding the D3300!

This book explains well the features and uses of this sophisticated camera. Four decades ago, I was a fairly proficient amateur user of an SLR film camera. However, I had gotten away from using sophisticated cameras. I have been using "point and shoots" since then. Recently, I longed to return to good photography, and I bought the Nikon D3300. I have bought two books to help me get into the technology I have bought. This is the better of the two. It explains things basically, and it is designed to allow you to enter any part of the book and understand what you are reading. In other words, I repeats things it has discussed previously, rather than either assuming you read the earlier section or referring you back to it. That may be a bit irritating if you read it straight through, but you can easily skim through the repetition you remember reading.

This book explains the features well and well-describes how to use them to best effect. I recommend it for someone who wants to learn how to use the features of this sophisticated camera. If you are an advanced user, (1) you do not need this book, and (2) you should not buy this entry-level DSLR camera.

Has some good information, but despite being very long, it has only a paragraph or two on what I considered to be the most v.i.p. things you need to understand the basic modes.
