It is very easy to understand.

You will enjoy the D60 book even if the Nikon is not your first DSLR and you already know the basics.

I read this book right after Christmas and thought it was great. And, since I worte a scalding review of "Photoshop Elements 8 for Dummies" this morning, it seemed only fair to give some credit to the D60 book. You will enjoy the D60 book even if the Nikon is not your first DSLR and you already know the basics. Oh, the D60 book covers the basics in a clear concise way but it moves on to things that are specific to this camera. The author moves you through the book in a logical thoughtful way so you will not get confused. You will actually want to read the entire book and, as a result, you might think twice about simply shooting everything in 'automatic' mode. After completing the book, you will be smarter - and that's supposed to be the whole idea!

Thanks to this book i see what an asset it will be in learning about my new camera i've always wanted, just reading a few pages and viewing the pictures, it will make this camera "funner" to use now that i understand what i need to do for the situation im in to make a better picture instead of just turning knobs and getting fustrated in what i think i know. What a great study guide to allow anyone to sit down with their camera and be able to do a hands on with the book and be amazed at the results there of. Enjoy!!!

Great full color book geared for beginners. If you plan on making the transition from a digital point and shoot, to a full fledged DSLR, this books takes this mystery out of all the buttons, switches and settings available on the Nikon D60 DSLR. Explains basic photographic theory as well in terms and words that are easy to understand. Highly recommended as the first book to break the ice on your new D60 DSLR.

Nikon D60 for Dummies has solved my problems. Yes, I had read the instruction manual for my camera, but still couldn't take great pictures of my son's baseball and soccer games at night. I tried everything, but only after I read the Dummies book, did I learn I had to do several things to make the pictures turn out right. It was explained in detail in simple terms, and PRESTO I have clear pictures with enough light and am very proud of my pictures. Now, all the other Moms are coming to me and saying "what am I doing wrong? Your pictures are so clear." Instantly, I'm an expert. It just needed to be explained to me and examples given, instead of saying "here's this button, use it" like the manual did.

Thank You Nikon D60 for Dummies. I'm all over Facebook with my pictures now.

If you own a Nikon D60, you need this book. It is very easy to understand. The index makes it simple to quickly find what you are looking for. It is 100% better than the manual that came with the camera. I can now use my camera the way it was meant to be used. No more "auto" mode. My photos are turning out really well.

It makes me appreciate my camera even more. I am learning things that I had never thought of before. I had studied the online manual quite a lot but this is much easier to understand.

This is a great book; makes everything about your camera become very simple to understand. You can figure out all the features of your Nikon D60 easily with simple language. The book provides simplicity in every aspect. I had no idea of the camera's terminology until I bought this book, now I finally understand my Nikon D60!

I highly recommend it!
