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.

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.

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!

These books are much better than the guide that comes with the camera. They are easy to read, easier to understand, and the pictures help in understanding the functions of the camera. I'm well pleased with this book.
