Format: Paperback
Just purchased this book as a supplement to the user guide included with the D5100, and I am so glad I did. I found a much broader explanation of buttons and menu options and appreciate the tips to take better photos in different lighting/scenes. I am an amateur photographer and I find there is plenty of information in this book that will help me right now, and in the future. If you looking for a straight forward and precisely written guide...this is the book for you.

I picked up the Nikon D5100 Digital Field Guide this weekend. It's a great little book. Not only does it cover all of the buttons and menu options, the book goes into detail on how to create specific types of photos like portraits and night photography.

There's also a very informative chapter dedicated exclusively to lenses. I was actually surprised the author included lenses that aren't made by Nikon too. It's nice to know that there are other options out there that are good.

Bottom line is that this is a great book for anybody, either someone just starting out or even someone with a little more experience behind the camera. It's written in a no-nonsense manner that's much easier to understand and has a lot more information than the manual.

Simply put, this book has taught me a lot about my D5100, I read it from my tablet as a continous reference when using my D5100 DSLR; and this, anywhere I go. I would recommend this book to anyone who owns a Nikon D5100 DSLR camera. Has definately helped improve my picture taking.

I like this book, it covers more than the included instructions that came with the camera, depite what other reviews say. It's easy to read with loads of pictures, and as a beginner like myself, it's a welcome companion.
Buy it!

Great manual tho it is lacking in areas. I was trying to find out how to use and change f settings. The manual talks about that BUT doesn't tell you HOW to change settings. A drag, had to keep asking my photo buddies (new camera) Had point and shoot for years now back to a 'smart' camera and needed a lot of help. Manual okay but those looking for a more complete guide, this is not it.

This is a very informative, in-depth look at the D5100 that is great for beginners and offers a wonderful, quick-access tool for those who have been using the D5100 for a while. I've had my camera for close to a year, and I still found this to be a helpful resource that allowed me to pick up a couple of tricks that I had missed from the regular user manual.

Plus, aside from just being a functional how-to, this guide gets a bit deeper into some of the most important techniques to take your photos to the next level.

Everything the Nikon guide left out and more. Indispensable.. Must have if you own the camera and don't own the book you don't know what you are missing. This explains what the settings are how to use them and when and where they work best I absolutely recommend this and any other digital field guide for any other (your) camera if you don't have D5100. Rave reviews!!!!!
