The Nikon D40 takes great shots right out of the box, but understanding the controls & features of the camera can really unleash its potential. This video explains how the camera's controls are designed to work together to capture the best image under all conditions. Each subject is contained in a separate chapter, so you can proceed at your own pace, & later come back to an individual topic. This 84 minute DVD can cut weeks or months off the learning curve for D40 owners.
Camera operation is broken down into easily understood components. Then the D40 owner is walked through real-world examples, building on the foundation already established. Many through-the-viewfinder examples make this camera much easier to understand & enjoy.

Your camera manual covers all the functions on your digital camera. It's also over 100 pages long.
When you are in the field, you need quick and accurate answers to achieve the best shot. We developed the inBrief line of camera guides so you can get the answers, and more importantly, the shot you want.
Each card is divided into 8 color-coded panels. If you have a question about metering or bracketing, simply look at the yellow panel. Questions about custom functions are answered on the green panel. The layout and description for the control panel & view finder can be found on the blue panel. And a color-coded index on the front page immediately points you toward the answer you need.
The inBrief guide is laminated for long life and protection from the elements. As importantly, the panels are separated by thin strips of clear lamination, allowing the card to be folded easily & stored in your camera bag.
Your inBreif guide won't be a replacement for your manual, but it will remind you of what functions are available, & how you can get them to work for you.
Every inBrief includes a line drawing of your camera with the controls for shooting, displaying images, and general operation clearly labeled, & a panel that shows you, at a glance, the camera functions available.
