    There is a new book on the market in the Peter Inova series: D70. This is a must for anyone who shoots a D70! Bout $50 + shipping.

    Has anybody got any experience with these kind of books?

    I'm a little skeptical of them unfortunately. I picked up a digital photography magazine the other day because the front cover read '50 secrets of the D70'

    After I'd finished reading it I thought they'd have been better off calling it '50 things that anybody who has read the D70 manual already knows' :roll:

    Are these books full of knowledge that's genuinely new and useful or do they just regurgitate the owner's manual and throw in a few tips that anybody who's used the camera for a couple of months already knows?

    Thanks for the link. Looks like it could be worth getting.

    I don't have (or plan to get) a D70. But for curiosity's sake...

    What is a camera specific book going to tell you that you can't find out from the manual or from actually using the camera?

    Quite a bit. That would be like asking why someone would buy a 3rd party book on Photoshop. The D70 has quite a few functions.. and no manual covers digital workflow... the information Nikon gives on the flash system is minimal... and so on and so on. I wouldn't say it was very informative for nothing ;)

    I guess that makes sense.

    Thanks
