Thank you for taking the time to read this review and I hope it provided helpful information to guide your purchase decision.
The above statement applies to to not only my D3X camera but also to this
incredibly useful guide, which has helped me to learn the camera's features.
I have read many instruction manuals and invariably get bored and confused
before I have really learned too much, then have then muddled through and
not really used the camera to it full extent. This Expanded Guide is written
by a Nikon expert and the book clarifies the functions of both the D3 and
the D3x, including getting the right exposure, technical tips, lenses and
When I am out photographing with my D3X I wouldn't be without this amazingly
useful book, as it helps me to take better photos.
megapixel D3X can produce. I am experienced with digital slr's, I have the Nikon D-80 and am comfortable with both the camera and Photoshop. However, always hearing the D3X referred to as a "pro" camera had me a little inhibited. Was it something I could handle? How steep is the learning curve? How different is this "pro" camera from my "pro-sumer" camera?
Luckily, this guide has set my mind somewhat at ease. Yes, there are features and menu options that allow customizing that I'm unfamiliar with, but they are clearly explained and I don't have to know it all from the start, and some I will never need (I think). The usual options I now use, such as Program Mode or Aperture priority are available here too and my current flash unit is compatible. The camera has enough familiar options that I can start using it out of the box and expand from there. The learning curve will be steep but gradual, the camera seems well-designed and the controls and options are all logical and relatively unintimidating. The book's scope, tone, and depth have been very reassuring. The logical progression in which the information is presented, and the detail in which it is presented make this guide both easy to read and a dependable source of reference. In addition to the menu-by-menu, button-by-button, item-by-item camera-specific detail, there are general photography pages that are nice to have but not specifically D3X related. The book also contains a handy cheat-sheet in the form of small cards to carry along and that double as neutral gray and white balance references. The book itself is not that large that you can't take it with you.Read more ›

I was really looking for something to give me more detail on the D3X as there is not many DVD's that share infoon the D3x more the D3.Published on December 24, 2012 by Tina
