Terpsichore, March 20, 2013 (view all comments by Terpsichore)
When I bought my Nikon D80 years ago I discovered the manual that came with it was not nearly enough so I bought a book and learned a few things. Recently I bought the Nikon D600 and knew even before it arrived that I would want a book that would really teach me all I needed to know. I am so pleased to have this book! It is fun to read and Sylvan uses a logical method for presenting the information as he moves you through becoming facile with your new best friend, the Nikon D600.

I'm not a novice but I think going back to basics is always a good idea when you get any new piece of technology instead of assuming what you know will directly all transfer. Yes, chances are it will, but why not just clear you mind and start at the beginning? When I do that I find the refresher part is good, the nuances I can pick up wonderful and my confidence and results are just what I'd hoped for or better!

You won't regret investing the few dollars it takes to own this book.
