Thank you Marty. I looked at Digitutor quickly and will definitely spend some time with it. Nothing to lose since it's free. It seems useful, but mostly as a way of looking up specific things I want to know about. I'm a total newbie to DSLR's. I've never used anything except small automatic cameras. I'm very excited but have no idea what I'm doing. Since I first posted, I've been told about two not-at-all-free instructional DVD's. One is NIKON D3000 BASICS QuickPro Instructional DVD Tutorial and the other is Magic Lantern. (I think they have a book and a DVD.) Does anyone know about either or others? What I'm hoping to find is a truly easy-to-follow tutorial that will guide me step by step in exploring my D3000.
I am not sure about the DVD's but Magic Lantern has been publishing Model specific books for decades. They are very well regarded by many. I wish that I could be more help! One of the advantages of Nikonians is if you have a specific question or questions someone will be happy to answer them for you. Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

I recommend the Magic Lantern DVD Guides Series -- Nikon D3000 Multimedia Workshop -- for about US $20 which includes the "Great Photos With Your Digital SLR" hardcover book and 2 DVDs ("Great Photos With Your Digital SLR" and "Nikon D3000").
