Book: Nikon D80 Digital Field Guide is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for first timers and pros. This book is a great reference for anyone new to the D80. It covers a broad range of topics and adds in the tips and tricks to getting the most out of the D80. Some of the book is a little basic, geared more towards beginners as an introduction to digital photography, but if you already know this, the organization makes it easy to skip right to what you want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended Manual Love this manual! It a thorough and interesting how to manual written with easy language and with lots of photos, and it also helps me understand the whys. It is one thing to know about a camera's features, but it's so much better to understand the benefit of each feature and this book seems to convey just that. Next time I buy a new camera I am purchasing it's Wiley Publication Field Guide at the same time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Helpful Handy Guide This book is easy to understand because it has pictures to go with the words. It's well organized making it easy to find a topic quickly. It won't teach you about photography, but it has increased my understanding of many of the camera's features even though I still may not know when to use a feature.
