the need for anything other than the owner's manual with cameras. Assuming you've used any modern camera before, that is. I mean, it's a camera for heaven's sake‚Äďand a really straightforward one at that.

I got the Hogan ebook for my D3 and have found it very useful. Thom gives really detailed explanations of things and gets into more of the technical details of why you would want to do something in a particular way. He gives suggestions (which you are free to ignore, but he also gives reasons for the suggestions). The D3 ebook is something like 800 pages, much longer than the manual. There's more in it.

Get the ebook. It's worth it. But don't throw away the manual, it's good, too.

One thing I like about the ebook is that it's searchable. You keep it on your laptop, and it's always available. I suppose I could download the manual in electronic format, too, but I haven't done it (yet).
