Hi Izzy. I have a D300 and I found the manual a bit 'techie' as they say. I mean there's 400 pages of instruction and all in English and I would have to be a college professor to fully understand all that's in it. I found a great book on my camera written by Simon Stafford, who is a genius on Nikon cameras. The series is called The Magic Lantern and there's one for most Nikon cameras. He writes in a way that's very easy to take in, and there's loads of illustrations. I think you have to contact Grays of Westminster to buy one, I did. If you are interested their number is: 020 7828 4925. Best regards.
