||From Ammonite, these Expanded Guides are much more than just user guides and cover all the capabilities of each camera! Written by experts and with worked examples, they are jargon free, full-color, and inclusive. This title covers Nikon?s 12.3-megapixel D5000 digital SLR, positioned between their entry-level D60 and higher-end D90. The camera can record HD movies at 1280x720 pixels / 30fps with sound, and features a 2.7 inch vari-angle articulating LCD monitor that makes it easier to compose shots from difficult angles. Its monitor offers sharp colors, brightness, and outstanding visibility in daylight, and an Airflow Control System removes dust from the sensor. The fully illustrated Expanded Guide will help photographers to maximise the potential of the Nikon D5000 with its comprehensive yet accessible approach.
