"Some cameras have incredibly useful features hidden deep in their menus," notes Guided Tour author and AIRC editor Mason Resnick.

The Guided Tour of the Nikon D40 also offers a Field Report summary of the camera's handling and quality in real-world use, as well as a new feature that highlights which accessories are most appropriate for this camera, and explains why.

While D40 owners can purchase videos and books that teach owners to use their cameras, the AIRC Guided Tour series, along with everything else on AIRC, is free.

The Guided Tours are amply illustrated, and designed to be read while actually holding and using the camera. "This way," says Resnick, "the information will be retained better so the user will remember to use it in appropriate situations while taking pictures."

In addition to describing the camera's features in detail, the Guided Tour is filled with useful tips to help get the most benefit out of those features. "The Guided Tours go far beyond what's in the instruction manual," says Resnick.

The Nikon D40 is the 10th in the ongoing Guided Tour series. Other tours include the Nikon D80, Rebel XTi, Olympus Evolt E-330, Sony A100 Alpha, and Pentax K100D. Readers can find the articles in the Guided Tour area of the AIRC (

AIRC editor Mason Resnick says, "we believe the more information and knowledge we can provide, the more people will trust Adorama both as a reliable information source and as a place where they can feel comfortable buying their photographic gear."
