Just bought this book, and flicked through it, dipping into just a few pages..
One the credits page, it seems that there were 14 people involved in producing this book, including one Linda Seifert who was specifically responsible for 'proofreading'.
But what a shame no one gave the proofs a slow and careful read through.
In the preface, it talks about the D300S being the 'predecessor' to the D300. Doh!
Talking about Speedlights, it tells us that the new SB-900 is more powerful than the SB-800. But if you look at the guide number they quote for the 800, that is shown as being higher. OK, only by one GN, but you get my drift.
Punctuation errors and more.
Yes, yes, trivia I know, and I am nitpicking, but it doesn't give total confidence: I just hope the technical stuff is handled a bit more meticulously.
