I'm happy that you liked Mastering the Nikon D5000. The camera is a powerful little thing, with a lot of features. I hope the book helps you really take control of the camera. If you need help with anything that is unclear to you, ask questions here in the forum. There are a lot of very knowledgeable and experienced people here. This is the best place for a Nikon user!
