With this Magic Lantern Guide , proud new owners of this wonderfully portable camera will be able to take full advantage of its cutting-edge digital technologies, including the great viewfinder that helps even beginners improve their composition, the large LCD monitor, wide viewing angle, invaluable built-in Help Menu, superb resolution power that assures good printing quality, and Nikon’s exclusive 3D Color Matrix Metering II system.
