Like previous "For Dummies" books on Nikon cameras, this
book assumes no prior dSLR experience as it helps readers take
control of their camera. Parts include: Fast Track to Super Snaps -
a tour of the camera body, shooting in auto mode, working with file
size and quality, and using the viewscreen to set up, shoot, and
review photos. Taking Creative Control - a hands-on how to on
shifting out of automatic mode and using the camera's lighting,
exposure, focus, and color features. Working With Picture Files -
covers the important steps of getting photos from the camera to a
PC, developing an effective file system, and sharing photos via
print, online, or other means. The Part of Tens - the traditional
closer of all "For Dummies" titles, author Julie King
offers photo retouching tips and unique features of the camera to
apply to certain shooting situations.
