David Busch's Compact Field Guide for the Nikon D3000 is an easy-to-use spiral bound book that you can either keep at home or, better yet, toss into your gear bag to have when you're out shooting. It covers all the relevant information you need to use your Nikon D3000 - features, functions, buttons, and capabilities.
Not only will it explain what the camera does, but it will explain when, where and why you should use each feature. The book lies flat when open so you won't have to waste one hand trying to read a page. Topics covered include landscapes, portraits, sports, close-ups, and travel.
