              I am giving it only 4 stars because it lacks an index for the chapter titles, and the listing only says the chapter number with no title. With 25 chapters, it is impossible to know which one is which subject!

                This video has a lot of information. I plan to go back through and review it again as there is a lot to absorb. The narrator takes you through the different segments in very clear steps. I found this information to be very helpful.

                  New digital cameras have so many functions and modes. After reading the written manual and having your eyes glaze over just play the DVD and get the practical story on how to operate the D7000. Very helpful to walk through the basic functions of the camera. A definite buy!

                        Thought it won't cover all the aspects of manual specifications/details, but the quality of basic usage of camera with demonstration was flawless and I like the explanation of the problem with real time examples/scenarios, as well as the analogy for supporting the those topics. The guide emphasizes more on getting on board with D7000 camera. The author of this DVD did mention that it will not a replace all manual references. I beleive the price for the product was on higher range.

                              Very good and thorough review of every camera function done in a logical sequence. I particularly like the last chapter which shows how to systematically prepare for a shoot, so when you leave your house you have considered 90% of the camera settings you can expect to use.
                              I also bought the Advanced Topics DVD, which is equally excellent.

                                  I recommend it.

                                        It's great to go at your own pace and go back for quick reference. It allows you to learn the basic functions of your camera without going too in depth and lose you along the way. Nothing to complain about here. Great gift for anyone new to the DSL-R world.
