More About the Author

With more than a million copies of his 100-plus books in print, David D. Busch is the world's #1 selling author of camera-specific guidebooks, and the originator of popular series like David Busch's Pro Secrets, David Busch's Quick Snap Guides, and David Busch's Guides to Digital SLR Photography.

His twelve hugely successful books for Nikon digital cameras are the top-selling guidebooks for their respective camera models. He has also written the most comprehensive and best-selling guides for many different models from Canon, Sony, Pentax, and other vendors.

Busch's dozens of other books devoted to digital photography include Digital SLR Cameras and Photography for Dummies, David Busch's Digital Infrared Pro Secrets and Mastering Digital SLR Photography. As a roving photojournalist for more than 20 years, he illustrated his books, magazine articles, and newspaper reports with award-winning images. Busch has operated his own commercial studio, suffocated in formal dress while shooting weddings-for-hire, and shot sports for a daily newspaper and upstate New York college.

The graduate of Kent State University in Ohio operated his own photo studio and was a principal in one of the largest public relations firms based in San Diego, California, working on press conferences, press kits, media tours, and sponsored photo trade magazine articles for clients including Eastman Kodak Company and Hewlett-Packard. Busch has published more than 2000 photography articles under his by-line in more than 100 different publications. His photos have appeared on the covers of magazines, and in both print and television advertising.

Busch has become one of the leading photojournalist/authors worldwide. He has had as many as five books appear simultaneously in the Amazon.com Top 25 Digital Photography Books, and when Michael Carr of About.com named the top five digital photography books for beginners, the #1 and #2 choices were his Digital Photography All-in-One Desk Reference for Dummies and Mastering Digital Photography.

Busch was a featured guest speaking on digital photography on Toronto's Breakfast Television show, has been a call-in guest for more than two dozen radio shows in major US markets, and his advice has been featured in the United States' National Public Radio's All Things Considered programme. His work has been translated into Arabic, Czech, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Bulgarian, German, Italian, French, and other languages.

David Busch has a well-deserved reputation as one of the best authors of clear, practical, camera guides. I have used his guides in the past for my Nikon D60 and Canon G11 and consider his associated guide to be an essential accessory to any new camera. However, this guide on the Nikon D7000 is a whole order different from the two I referred to. This is a master reference document, laid out in a completely logical format with crystal clear descriptions of all of the D7000's many features, options and capabilities. I could not recommend it more highly as essential for all D7000 purchasers who are keen amateurs and for whom the D7000 is a significant step up from their previous digital camera.

I made the mistake of buying John Batdorff's book (From Snapshots to Great Shots - the title should have warned me!) but at that time David Busch's book hadn't been released. David's book, by comparison, is properly comprehensive and clearly aimed at photographers who have used a SLR before and now want to know how to leverage the full functionality of the D7000. I have found it an excellent reference.

Format: Paperback
The D7000 is a big step up from my early DSLR, and whilst competent with composition and exposure, Busch's book has flattened my learning curve considerably. It's comprehensive (3cm thick!), written in an easy style which avoids being irritating or nerdy. The format is logical and it does absolutely get you into the depths of the D7000 and provides an understanding of how to to use the camera's features to provide much better shots, sooner. Well worth the £15 on Amazon.

Format: Paperback
First if all I am not new to photography, having learn't my trade on 32mm / 120mm formats. After deciding to take the plunge I purchased a D7000 over the more expensive D300 / D700 for reasons you will probably be aware of. The standard Nikon manual that comes with the camera is tedious beyond belief but I have never been a fan of technical books. After spending 30 minutes or so I opted for this one.

When I first received the book i was quite surprised at it's size, the cover, pages and content are all of a very high quality. The chapters and content are laid out in a logical manner and not only does it cover everything you need it is also an enjoyable read. The book is crammed full of colour photographs. The topics are covered in sufficient depth and include everything you need to know and there is a handy section on updating your firmware. The book dose not just describe what the D7000 functions are like other books I have seen, it tells you why you should be using them which adds context.

This is a really useful book and even though I would describe myself as having a very good knowledge on photography I think there is something for everyone in this book. If I upgrade my camera in the future I would have no hesitation in buying a book by this author. The book I would suggest is too big for your camera bag, there is also a stripped down version which some people may prefer. (for me I want as much information as possible). There is also a handy little iPhone App by this the same Author. You have to pay extra (£6 I think) but that's my field guide when I am out-and-about.

In summary, well written, good value and very useful.

Was looking for a more detailed guide for my D7000, This guide does take over where the manual leaves off. Explains the functions, menus and short cuts. At first I thought the book rather expensive but on reading reviews decided to pay the extra for this book, really glad that I did. This guide will be a useful for years to come.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This really is quite a tome, - a most comprehensive and well written book, - far better and clearer read than the Nikon D7000 manual that comes with the camera. I thoroughly recommend it to all but professional photographers and the most experienced amatuer purchasers of the camera. However, as complete, clear and excellent as it undoubtedly is, it is not, - nor was it intended to be, - a book one might just pop into one's camera bag or rucksack. It is just too darn big and heavy! For such convenience, David Busch's "Compact Field Guide for the Nikon D7000", containing essential information about settings, menus and options in a spiral-bound lay-flat book is the answer. He is an excellent writer of Nikon camera guides, probably the very best in my view. I am delighted to have this book as a reference.

Format: Paperback
I first came across David Busch several years ago when I bought his field guide for the Nikon D80.I have recently upgraded to the D7000 and did not think twice about purchasing his guide for my current camera as it has a lot more features than the D80.Without a doubt the D7000 guide is an excellent buy and takes the reader through every menu and setup programme in language and instructions that are easy to follow.Although the D7000 is,I believe,not aimed at the beginner coming into digital photography some of the guide does cover topics that the user will already be familiar with,but as the old saying goes 'You can never have too much information'.
If anyone is thinking of buying Davids book you will not be disappointed in the wealth of information compared to the Nikon instruction book that comes with the camera.
