About this book

The Nikon D3000 is Nikon's new entry-level camera. With the D3000, you get all the features of Nikon's older cameras along with an updated battery, larger monitor, and improved focus features. In addition, the D3000 also offers simpler menus to help first-time dSLR users.

Assuming no prior dSLR knowledge, veteran author Julie Adair King offers you a tour of the camera body, a hands-on how-to on all the features of the D3000, and a step-by-step walkthrough of how to get the photos you want.
