Nikon A1000 PDF User Manual
Did you lose or misplace the instruction manual that came with your Nikon Coolpix A1000? It happens all too easily, but fortunately Nikon makes a soft copy available that you can browse through online, print out, or download (see the pdf file below). It is certainly good practice to carefully familiarize oneself with the many different functionalities and options that the A1000 offers, and the official user manual is without doubt an authoritative and comprehensive source of respective information.
That said, the instruction booklet can be a dry read, so that a dedicated camera guide book from a professional photographer that illustrates the camera's core functions in a real life photography context can be a very helpful complement. Yes, getting one of these camera guides (see here at amazon) would involve an additional expense, but if that book helps to exploit the camera's potential to the full, the (small) additional investment may well be worth it.
Also, you might want to check out the video tutorial on the Nikon Coolpix A1000 below.
In any case, the A1000 is an advanced imaging tool, whose many features merit serious attention. This fixed lens compact camera was officially introduced on January 18th, 2019, which means that, as of today, the camera is 1404 days old (young?). Given that the A1000 is a relatively recent model, it forms part of the current Nikon product line-up.
