Re: Which book would you recommend?

I've got both for my D50 and I think the magic lantern one is probably more in depth and generally better in terms of that kind of thing, but the field guide has more pictures and is a more basic but still thorough grounding, really telling you what you need to know....

Re: Which book would you recommend?

I haven't seen the magic lantern book but I do own the Digital Field Guide and I found it most useful.
like I said I haven't seen the other so I can't compare.
BUT you now own both so maybe you can tell us about them.
