Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book goes into the detailed operation of the Nikon D3200 in plain language that anyone can understand. When I first bought this camera, I knew about most of the basic features as Nikon cameras share certain basic characteristics. However, there were a number of features that the basic field guide covered with tech talk. The guide also did not cover aftermarket products available for this camera at all. This book not only covers aftermarket products, it lets you decide what you need for the type of photos you like to take. I highly recommend this book.
You are better than that.
