  • Organized to help you learn. The eBook is presented in distinct sections for what you need to know before using the camera (background and setup), while using the camera (shooting features), and after using the camera (what you can do in the camera with an image that has already been taken). Want a more concise carry-it-with-you guide? Just print the middle section and have it bound to take with you.
  • A complete instruction manual and an introduction to relevant digital issues in one book. Thom Hogan's Complete Guide to the Nikon D60 manages to not only fully describe every feature of the D60 in clear, easy-to-understand language, but gives you rich, technical background for many of the critical issues that confront digital camera users. First time DSLR users will get information about how DSLRs work. DSLR veterans will get insights into how to set their D60 for the best results.
  • Nikon flash and autofocus modes explained in plain English! Wonder how the I-TTL flash works? Can't figure out the autofocus or metering systems and why they do what they do? Thom Hogan's Complete Guide to the Nikon D60 explains these terms and accompanying techniques in the same simple, no-nonsense language that made his Nikon Field Guide a best seller.
  • Includes useful Photoshop Actions and Depth of Field spreadsheet. On the disc is Thom's Excel spreadsheet, which allows you to calculate depth of field and hyperfocal distance for any Nikon lens used with the D60 (note that depth of field on a digital body like the D60 is not the same as it is for 35mm film). But that's not all! You'll also get Excel workbooks for macro and flash (know how to calculate the GN of multiple flashes or the effective GN when bouncing? You will if buy this book!).
  • Includes an introduction to Nikon's software. Includes a separate 180+ page eBook that describes all of Nikon's software (Transfer, ViewNX, Capture NX2, and Camera Control Pro) in detail.
  • Complete means complete. Unlike many of the other books that have popped up about this camera, you'll find much more information here, and no aspect of the camera is left uncovered or glossed over. Find out why so many Nikon users think that Thom's Complete Guides offer the best, most accurate, and understandable descriptions of the Nikon DSLRs.
