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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helps to get beyond the essentials 20 Oct 2007
Format:Paperback
I am usually rather wary of books that offer to illustrate the camera manual and make it easier to understand. Sometimes they do no more than that and don't help to widen one's knowledge. This book, however, goes well beyond the manual. Following, as one would expect, a clear presentation of the technical features of the D80 and their efficient use, there are chapters dedicated to exposure, lenses, and working with light that help to give a better understanding of the many elements the photographer will have to juggle in order to achieve his aim. I found the section on "Photo Subjects", presenting the "rules" of good composition in different settings, helpful, though perhaps a bit too similar to what so many other publications offer in this regard. All in all, this book is a good investment if you are starting to use a D80 and learning to hone your photographic skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it 15 Jan 2008
Format:Paperback
This is a really useful book - I am very glad I got it. I found the manual that comes with the D80 to be extremely limited and hard to use, this takes everything much further and has some really useful explanations and tips. The D80 has so many functions and settings and intuition alone is not going to enable you make the most of all of them. As you've spent £500+ on the camera package, I think it's worth a few extra pounds to really know how to use the camera, even if you're experienced in photography. As it says on the label, this book explains how to use the D80's multitide of controls to achieve what you want while also being small enough to fit in your bag.

5.0 out of 5 stars D80 Owner (amateur!) 24 Mar 2008
By Sara
Format:Paperback
Great book for anyone starting out with a D80! I'm usually the type of person who doesn't have the patience to sit down with an instruction manual or book. I'd rather just get my hands on the hardware and mess around until I've figured it all out. So David Busch's D80 digital field guide was a first.
Despite my phobia of instruction manuals and guides, I have really enjoyed studying all the useful information in this book. I would certainly recommend this book to any new D80 owner (or to a D80 owner who wants to polish up on their photography skills). It not only gets into the nitty-gritty of the D80 but also provides a great introduction to photogrpahy in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last a manual that helps 29 April 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have bought a number of camera manuals over the years from Lantern guides to Hove foto books, and they have all really done little more than re-hash the camera manual. The Digital Field guide starts with the manual and simplifies it and pulls out lots of useful customisation settings on the D80. It very quickly helps you around all the key featrures of the camera, then digs deeper into some key areas of operation. It is clearly and logiclly written and with lots of clean illustrations. The latter half is made up of a lot of general photography tips and an experienced photographer may skip a lot of this section, although I have to put my hand up and admit it refreshed me on a couple of key elements around flash. If you have bought a D80 and have spent hours poring over the manual this will be a welcome aid to getting the most out of what is a very capable camera, I can highly recommend it.

By Stan M
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
excellent publication used in conjunction with manual,marred slightly by lack of hyphens in lens range ie 1870 instead of 18-70but in my opinion a better buy than the magic lantern d80 guide

Nikon D80 Digital Field Guide

Written with a god portion of humor, reading this field guide is a pleasure. It gives you a clear impression of the camera's functions and possibilities which is superior to the factory manual's confusing references back and forth. In addition it will give the beginners in photography an insight in the photographic terms like apertures, ISO, exposure etc. Even relatively experienced amateur photogaphers will gain a lot of valuable information reading this book. Great value for money!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nikon D80 Digital Field Guide 23 Jun 2010
Format:Paperback
A very useful and informative guide to using the D80. The manual given with the camera when you but it is not easy to follow so this guide book is a godsend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensible buy for even the experienced user 9 May 2010
By Doub
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My initial impression on opening this book was that there was little in it that I didn't already know, having had a D80 for over two years. But on delving into it I soon realised I was wrong, there being a good deal in it that I didn't know, or had overlooked or imperfectly understood. Doubtless all the info is in the supplied Nikon manual, but its cryptic style and arcane layout do not make it user-friendly. David Busch's book, on the other hand, is written in a cogent and lucid fashion, with a plethora of illustrations and examples. I learnt a lot from it and warmly recommend it.
