Save your money and read your manual. This book only briefly touches on the D300 and believe it or not the manual that comes with the D300 is a lot better written. The information in this book about the D300 is very basic, and you will pick up similar or better information by skim reading the user manual that comes with the D300. I gave the book 1 star because it is cheap and gives some basic photography tips.

You might as well just read the manual which comes with the camera. I don't think this book is well written and compiled as some bullet pointed information seems to be under the wrong bullet point and some explanations, for example about polarising filters, are to put it charitably "confused". There is also a lot of repetition in the first half of the book. It gets one star for being cheap and giving a few valuable points of information.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As mentioned elsewhere, I am in the process of converting from film to digital photography and there are certain aspects which I have found quite daunting. Altogether, I have purchased several books and tutorial DVDs on the subject as that process of conversion continues and this product is one of the best.

Having already worked my way through this particular title (with camera in hand) I found this book was able to provide instruction which was far superior to any of the tutorials I had also studied. Basically, if you are new to the Nikon D300, this book will provide an excellent grounding.

Beginning with an introduction to the camera, the book is then carefully laid out in the best possible way where the author meticulously builds on the information imparted so far until the structure of the book is complete. Part 1 contains an explanation of the many and varied facets of this outstanding camera and are far too numerous to list here. Part 2 then expands on this knowledge by giving examples of how to create great images and includes a chapter on working with light and other aspects of the art.

Altogether a complete product for the complete photographer.

A disappointing book, more concerned with showing you his portfolio and snaps of his girlfriends than in teaching you about the complex operational foibles of the D300.

Might suit someone who's just been given a D300 and hasn't got a clue how to take a photograph, but that's about it.

One star, and I give that grudgingly.

When I bought the Nikon D300 it didn't come with a manual, so I had to find something that would show me directions around the controls of this wonderful camera. This book has done exactly that. Fully recommended.
