David Busch's Compact Field Guide for the Nikon D5000 is small, spiral bound reference guide to this camera that fits in your gear bag. No more trying to read the small print in the original instructional manual. This guide is a quick reference way to obtain valuable data on the camera. It's small enough to be kept in your gear bag or on the table in your studio. The pages lie flat when opened which means you can concentrate on the buttons on the camera rather than the book.
In addition to finding information about what all the buttons and dials do, you'll be educated in when, where and how to use them. There are valuable tables that give you suggested settings for various shooting scenarios - landscape, portrait, sports and more.
