Excerpt: If you've never unpacked a Nikon digital compact camera, it can be a little disconcerting. You see, the first thing you find is what looks like the instruction manual which is a thick book full of text. However, look closer and you'll see that it's a quick start guide and is in several languages. The full manual is on the enclosed CD which will be underneath the guide. Also on the CD is ViewNX 2, a basic editing software suite which is powered by ArcSoft.
