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.

1.0 out of 5 stars A book of waffle! 19 Jan 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The first third of the book is a 'large print' version of the manual, adding very little to the manual. It completely avoids explaining the more compex issues of say, focus modes, which for a guide to a camera which is of interest to the dedicated amateur or professional is poor to say the least. (There are some excellent articles available free on Nikon associated websites.)

The remainder of the book is on general photographic practice and mostly not related to the D200 at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Good Enough 16 Jan 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Anybody who wants a good guide to the D200 should look elsewhere, sorry. I found the magic Lantern book a lot better. Look under AF-Area Mode Selector. The information is the wrong way round in this book, the author (D. Busch) states that the single-area AF is at the top, wrong! Its at the bottom of the switch, sorry I think thats a BIG error and caused me concern until I read the Nikon Manual.

The main problem I find with this book is that all it seems to do is copy much of its information out of the original Nikon User Guide and doesn't explain much of it in any greater detail - probably the main reason for getting it in the first place! At least the Nikon Guide is written in a logical order - not so with Mr Busch's effort! It also hardly mentions the personal customisation settings that are available on the D200 - something that I was particularly interested in. Not even the Field Projects section is described in anything more than a brief explanation for each topic. THIS BOOK LACKS DETAIL!! Get Simon Stafford's Magic Lantern Guide instead - it's far superior

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but... 8 Aug 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently bought the D200 and read the instruction book (included) cover to cover and found it easy to read and understand and had the camera working in no time at all. A few years ago I purchased the F5 and for the fun of it bought a Magic Lantern guide, it didn't really cover any more than I had learnt in the F5 manual.

So it was with trepidation that I ventured down the path of an other guide dedicated to a specific camera! I am of mixed mind...

Part 1 covers nothing really new, that I didn't know in the manufacturers guide! It is printed better and clearer to read, but that is as should be...

Part 1 continues to cover a little more, but again nothing that can't be read between the lines of the manual!

So I am at Part 2 on page 75 and I haven't learnt much that I didn't know before! Part 2 has info on Essentials, exposure DofF and HISTOGRAMS, helpful! All about lenses, ok, Working with light, prob have that in another book, and Photo Subjects. Again this is probably in other photo books but it is useful here and has over 100 pages dedicated to this subject!

Part 3 is troubleshooting and is only a few pages, so that is a plus point really!! It mentions dust removal and equipment to use!

There is a glossary at the back!

I will keep this book on the 100 pages of photo subjects and it has a few pages of useful info here and there, but I won't get another guide of its kind because I don't see the point! All the additional info is most probably available in other books and the included guide covers pretty much everything this does, shame.....

I have read other books by Busch and plan to check out some others, so the author can't be criticized, he knows his cameras!

This is a beginners book. If you are new to the D200 and want a little bit of an insight into a few of the controls then this might be for you. If you are even an amateur photographer, this book will waste your time.
Only 72 of its 250 pages is actually dedicated to some loose aspect of the D200. It's really difficult to make connections to the camera's menus or controls because the author does not use a Legend or numbering method to cross reference with either the pictures of the camera or the manual. In fact, no reference is made to the camera's manual. I found this to be really strange because the assumption is that all cameras are supplied with a manual which is invaluable to the description and operation of the camera and not to make reference to it means that he probably hasn't read it.
The information in this book on the D200 is akin to the sort of articles you would get in photography magazines.
THE GOOD: The rest of this book contains lots of useful information on how to take photographs. Lots of photos, colour graphs and illustrations included. Good use of colour throughout the book. The typeface has a nice layout.
THE BAD: The photos of the camera and illustrations cannot be easily referenced because there are no reference points and no references to the camera's manual. Very difficult to find exactly what you want, you have to look really hard and rely totally on the Index, and even then, it's tough. The chapters are a bit strange because you can't just go to a chapter and find what you want, you still have to use the Index
THE UGLY: The photographs in this book are mainly dull and lifeless, although this may be more to do with the printing process. Just look at page 146, that says it all. (why do these book writers always use their families in photos?
