It’s the first guide I've read which has taken me through all the settings in an understandable way. I now feel that I have control over the camera. -Peter S.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get a quick start to using the camera. Manuals are nice, but this eBook highlights the important information and gives a quick easy to understand explanation of most all of the functions and controls. -Ray M.

This manual is a clearly written, concise and useful explanation of the rationale for the seemingly infinite and often confusing settings options for the D610. -WLS

I found the Nikon manual good for understanding how to set things up but not much on the why - this book really focuses on the "why." -Benoit A.

It's clear, concise and gets to the heart of the camera's multiple and often confusing options. Very highly recommended - for experienced user and beginner alike. -GSA
