You don't want good pictures from your new Nikon D750--you demand outstanding photos. After
all, the revamped D750 is the most advanced camera in the $2,300 price range that Nikon has ever
introduced. It boasts 24 megapixels of resolution, blazing-fast automatic focus, and professionallevel
video capabilities. But your gateway to pixel proficiency is dragged down by the fat but confusing
book included in the box as a manual.
You know everything you need to know is in there, somewhere, but you don't know where to start.
In addition, the camera manual doesn't offer much information on photography or digital photography.
Nor are you interested in spending hours or days studying a comprehensive book on digital
SLR photography that doesn't necessarily apply directly to your D750.
What you need is a guide that explains the purpose and function of the D750's basic controls, how
you should use them, and why. Ideally, there should be information about file formats, resolution,
aperture/priority exposure, and special autofocus modes, but you'd prefer to read about those topics
only after you've had the chance to go out and take a few hundred great pictures with your new
camera. Why isn't there a book that summarizes the most important information in its first two or
three chapters, with lots of illustrations showing what your results will look like when you use this
setting or that? This is that book.
