Blue Crane's "Introduction to the Nikon D40" and inBrief Guide - If you have just purchased your D40x, the controls on the outside of the camera, coupled with all the menus and custom settings, can be downright overwhelming. Blue Crane gives you a structure for looking at the controls, as well as a repeatable ritual for taking great photos with your camera. You spent a bundle on this camera. Let it be an extension of your hands rather than a struggle.

The Nikon D40x is a powerful piece of equipment. A solid understanding of its features and controls can really unleash its potential. Once you learn how the camera's components work together, you'll have all the tools you need to capture the best image under all conditions.

Take great pictures with your Nikon D40. All you need is this training DVD and about two hours, and you'll have the knowledge and the confidence to create the images you want. The topics are arranged in chapters, so you can move at your own pace, and return later to individual subjects.

This item also comes with an inBrief Guide. Your camera manual covers all the functions on your new digital camera. It's also over one hundred pages long.

When you are in the field, you need quick and accurate answers to achieve the best shot. Blue Crane developed the inBrief line of camera guides so you can get the answers, and more importantly, the shot you want.

Each card is divided into eight color-coded panels. If you have a question about metering or bracketing, simply look at the yellow panel. Questions about custom functions are answered on the green panel. The layout and description for the control panel and view finder can be found on the blue panel. And a color-coded index on the front page immediately points you toward the answer you need.

The inBrief guide is laminated for long life and protection from the elements. As importantly, the panels are separated by thin strips of clear lamination, allowing the card to be folded easily and stored in your camera bag.

Your inBrief guide won't be a replacement for your manual, but it will remind you of what functions are available, and how you can get them to work for you.

Every inBrief includes a line drawing of your camera with the controls for shooting, displaying images, and general operation clearly labeled. It also has a panel that shows you, at a glance, the camera functions available for each mode dial setting, as well as a cross reference to flash sync modes.

So quit fumbling with the controls, and take control of your camera and the images you want to capture. Blue Crane will give you the answers inBrief.

Note: This DVD is region free. It was developed for new to intermediate photographers buying their first DSLR camera.

Blue Crane Digital BC613 reviews

DVD and Guide: Introduction to the Nikon D40 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great DVD! I have bought Blue Crane DVD guides in the past (for the D90) and this one was on the same level, which is great! Great Production, great examples, and very thorough instruction. If you have a Nikon DSLR and have an opportunity to pick up the Blue Crane Instructional DVD for your camera, just do it! You'll be glad you did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I learned some new things I am not really new to photography, but I didn't really know the technical stuff. I just kind of got good pictures by luck and hit and miss. This helped me to get what I was trying to get without a lot of trying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful tool! The DVD was a God Send - I learned more in the time it took to watch the video than trying (struggling) through the owner's manual. ...
