5.0 out of 5 stars The Bees Knees of D7100 instruction manuals, 26 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: David Busch's Nikon D7100 Guide to Digital SLR Photography (David Busch's Digital Photography Guides) (Paperback)
This is a very weighty tome and David Busch has certainly excelled himself this time. His statement at the front of the book about not rushing into writing a more generic DSLR publication and rehashing other Nikon camera guides, like other authors have done, is testament to his dedication to create the ultimate guide for this ultimate camera.

Personally, I have been using SLR cameras for over 50-years, both 35mm film and DSLR digitals, using both Canon and Nikon brands. During that time the two brands ran neck and neck with each other, both in the professional and amatuer fields, however, in the early digital age it was Canon who outranked Nikon, especially in the enthusiast sector. The Nikon D7100, marketted as an ethusiasts tool is by all accounts a professional camera, the first DX of it's kind in the world and with specifications that amatuer photographers have dreamt about for years.

This book not only enhances the already large Nikon guide that comes with the camera, but it also gives tips and shortcuts that Nikon themselves have not bothered to mention. The author has constructed the book in a way that will appeal to past DSLR users, whether Nikon or not, and new DSRL users, maybe upgrading from a bridge camera for instance. Thus he covers some basic items and gives tips that even past Nikon users may not have realised are available. A point in question for me at least, remembering that I have owned in the past six other Nikon DSLR's and three Nikon compacts, is the calendar view, which enables one to enter, 1-step past the 12-thumbnail view, all images taken on a specific day, using a monthly calendar page. So you see, it's easy for even experienced and regular Nikon users to miss things.

The book covers everything, even Nikon lenses preferred for this specific camera - but beware, if you want a guide to take with you in your camera bag, this is not the one. Covering everything means that it is a weighty volume, both in content and in actual heavyness. Highly recommended for anybody that really wants to get the best out of the D7100 and take their photography to a higher level.
