The Expanded Guides are much more than just camera and software manuals. Written by experts and with real-life examples, they are jargon-free and full-colour. They also include a quick reference wallet card, and “Photographer’s Grey” coloured endpapers for metering.
The D5300 is Nikon’s advanced ‘consumer’ series, occupying a middle position in the DX-format camera range, between the entry-level and the ‘enthusiast’ or ‘semi-pro’ series. With an articulating rear screen for flexibility when shooting in Live View and movies. Nikon has retained its tried and tested F lens-mount (introduced in 1959), making it possible to use many classic Nikon lenses with the D5300, though care is needed and some camera functions (eg autofocus) may be lost.
