Owners of the newest budget-friendly Nikon D5000 DSLR will find Darrell Youngâ€™s â€œMastering the Nikon D5000â€ a useful and comprehensive guide that will take them from the basics through the intricacies of the feature-laden camera.
The small and lightweight Nikon D5000 mixes generous portions of user-controlled manual photography features with the latest technological innovations, allowing fully automatic point and shoot simplicity. There is also an entire chapter on the exciting new D-Movie function that can record high-quality HD movie clips at 24 frames per second.
Darrell’s approach in teaching the reader to master this camera avoids the purely instructional technique, favoring a more friendly and advisory tone. He blends his decades of Nikon camera experience with an intuitive understanding of the readers’ most likely questions regarding specific camera functions and features. Rather than just list all options for the myriad of camera settings and adjustments, he explains the background behind each setting and shares his personal recommendations.
Mastering the Nikon D5000 (Rocky Nook, $34.95 USD) is available now from Oâ€™Reilly.
