        Comments about Nikon D3100 for Dummies:

        This book certainly helped. Until I had started reading it, the user manual which came with the camera meant nothing to me as a novice photographer. Only two months down the track and not only do I consider myself relatively proficient with the camera, but I am able to use Dummies to assist others in my local camera club. Money well spent
