I read the manual cover to cover. It wasn't much help. This was the book that made it all clear and understandable. I like to think I am pretty intelligent but I knew that I didn't have much time before my trip and I wanted to really use my new D90. This helped me get up to speed pretty quickly and even cleared up questions from when I used to shoot with my film SLR. I highly recommend this book for any owner of the D90. It is a great camera with incredible potential but only if you know how to use it. This certainly gets you off to a fast start.

Fabulous book! Forget your user manual for now and buy this book as it breaks down all the essentials of this camera. After struggling with the Nikon manual for weeks, I read this and immediately found all kinds of key tricks to making great photos. The author knows Nikon and makes learning the D90, a highly technical piece of equipment, light and easy. I am so glad I bought this and now capture great photos!

I am new to this series of books, but from now own, they will be my first resource!

I purchased two other D90 books, plus read the owners manual before buying this book. I really wish I could go back and start with this book! I read the owners manual, then started on a second book and decided there had to be a better way to learn about this complex peice of equipment. I learned more in the first 100 pages than from reading the owners manual and half of one other guide. If I were to own one book on the D90, this would be the one.

I am not a photo genius, but demand to have high quality equipment. Unfortunately, high quality equipment makes for complicated equipment. What it really did for me was to tell me which buttons to worry about, and when. Works great!

Format: Paperback
This book is so informative I'm reading it from cover to cover even though, as a former photographer, I'm familiar with some of the information already. When I have questions regarding the use of my new Nikon D90, I don't even look at the Nikon manual. I go right to this terrific book. The author is honest about the fact that some of the camera's features get so complicated that, at times, it may be best just to shoot on "auto" or use manual focusing. I highly recommend this book.

This is the manual that should have come with the D90. I come from the old school of Nikon F bodies with film. I cannot help but think in terms of F-stops and shutter speeds. This book, with quality paper and color images, has everything I need to know about using the D90 in my own terms.

I highly recommend this book for anyone using this camera. My first DSLR was a D70 and I never found a book like this for it.

I purchased with with the D90 as I had read that the manual was difficult to navigate. This book walked me through all the options and I went from never owning or using a SLR to being able to control just about every function the camera has. Definitely not for experienced photographers but great start for the beginner out there. I haven't read any other books though to compare to.
