Users manual for D7000
Dec 12, 2013

Bought a used D7000 and it came with a Spanish manual. My Spanish stinks, I have a hard time ordering food at a mexican resturant (if anyone wants it just let me know). Anyway, I thought I could wing it by just watching youtube videos and such.......well, its not working all that well. I would really like to have a book in hand to reference when needed. Nikon has it in a pdf format, but then I'll have all these sheets everywhere stapled and clipped and falling apart. Are any of the books out there any good or should I try Nikon?

Thanks

RJ

The hard copy manual is obviously the same as the PDF. Once you go though it a few times the hard copy I don't bother with. The Thom Hogan guide for the D7000 is really good. Makes the Nikon manual seem like poor CliffsNotes.  If you are new to D90's and beyond, I would really recommend it. Makes for a really solid Nikon/DSLR foundation

Use google. Download a PDF manual. Free. Print the pages you want.

I'm sorry to tell you, but Thoms D7000 guide is out of sale at the moment. Ordered it some 14 days back and got a message, that it will (soon) be availible in a download version, but as I understood, not in a printed book version. Shame

Never ask a man where he's from. If he is from Texas, he'll tell you. Otherwise, don't embarrass him.

Birger, it comes with a hard copy book that is better than the manual, and he gives the buyer permission to print or have printed, one copy.

For sure download the Nikon pdf.

David Busch's guides are supposed to be good.

Yes, I know that - but he sent me this message (together with the payment return) that there was no left, and that I should Watch his homesite for a download version in some weeks.

It will be okay for me, I hadn't ordered the book, only the CD - so to me a download is okay - but not to the OP.

I understood your post, I just thought you didn't know about the print book.  I can't remember if I paid extra or it came with the DVD.

Just got the David Busch guide. Looks to be pretty in depth. When I first purchased my D40 I didnt really read the manual, just kinda used it as a big point n shoot. Last time I really got into photography I had a Minolta X700 and Nikon F3.....needless to say it looks like things have changed .

Thanks again for the replies
