I'd look into one of the third party books. I shoot Canon, so can't recommend a Nikon one in particular, but I liked the books David Busch wrote. I believe this one is the comparable one to the Canon books I bought.

Welcome Dan and hope you have some good fun here. Best way to learn is to experiment...get the basics down with a manual or good book and then shoot away. Good luck!!

Read the manual completely. Don't skip anything, especially safety instructions and precautions. You're going to have to care a lot for it because we people start to love our camera. haha!

Welcome to DT, Dan. I love the cardinal shot.

I am a Nikon shooter as well. Check out Thom Hogan, I have used his web site and books when I get a new body. Back when I bought my D200 he had a great chart for it on how to set the settings for different subjects. It made my life of switching between sports, portraits, etc. easy.

Here is his review of the 5100 - and it has a link to his "Complete Guide" on the page.

Good luck, I look forward to seeing more,
