5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Step Counter, Sept. 10 2013
I've owned several step counters but this is the best by far. Battery life last's almost 2 weeks between charges. No complaints whatsoever

This is my 2nd guidebook from David Busch (the other was for my "old" D50). And, like the first one I read, I highly recommend this book for those who felt the manual that came with the camera was not the greatest. The pictures were beautiful... wow, colour, what a concept!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very inspiring book, March 22 2008
This book made me want to take more photographs.

Not sure why so many people gave it only 1 star on amazon.ca and amazon.com. One critique mentioned all the errors in the text. I didn't find that many. The author does repeat equipment definitions because this book doesn't have to be read cover to cover.

His pictures didn't appear in National Geographic because he's a bad photographer.
