I find the factory D70 instruction manualsomewhat vague and notparticularly enlightening. Do any D70 owners know of a good after market manual that will provide some detail and informative material?

I have this e-book. It is a very complete manual for the D70. It is not available as a printed book but you can print your own copy.

http://www.bythom.com/d70guide.htm

I have not used this book (below), so I can't really tell you anything about it but I have read a manual on the Nikon Coolpix 995 by the same author and found it to be an excellent book with a lot of tips as well as a complete explanation of the camera's features. This book is available either in print, 8.5" by 11" softcover, or as an e-book.

Hope this helps,

Bill

This looks like what I need. I ordered Thom's e-book. Many thanks for the help!

Having read both Thom's and Peter iNova's ebooks,I would recommend the latter. It has more coverage IMHO.

Thom's feels like an extension of the manual (and 'vague' it is), and although very comprehensive, I feel it's a little dry. I find Peter's book covers a wider range of photographic topics including the history of photography, of Nikon DSLR cameras, photoshop techniques (incl. hundreds of actions on the CD), colour space/calibration/management issues, etc. It's also presented in a much eaiser to read fashion. While taking nothing away from Thom's ebook - it's almost universally recommended,I feel Peter's book is more suited from beginners to advance. There's also pictures throughout to break up the monotony of simply straight text.

Thank you for your input. I'll take a look at that one too.
