About the Author

With more than a million books in print, David D. Busch is the world's #1 selling digital camera guide author, and the originator of popular digital photography series like David Busch's Pro Secrets and David Busch's Quick Snap Guides. He has written more than a dozen hugely successful guidebooks for Canon and Canon digital SLR models, as well as many popular books devoted to dSLRs, including Mastering Digital SLR Photography, Second Edition, and Digital SLR Pro Secrets. As a roving photojournalist for more than twenty years, he illustrated his books, magazine articles, and newspaper reports with award-winning images. He's 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. His photos and articles have appeared in Popular Photography & Imaging, The Rangefinder, The Professional Photographer, and hundreds of other publications. He has also reviewed dozens of digital cameras for CNet and Computer Shopper, and his advice has been featured in National Public Radio's "All Tech Considered." When About.com named its top five books on Beginning Digital Photography, debuting at the #1 and #2 slots were Busch's Digital Photography All-In-One Desk Reference for Dummies and Mastering Digital Photography. During the past year, he's had as many as five of his books listed in the Top 20 of Amazon.com's Digital Photography Bestseller list-simultaneously! Busch's 120-plus other books published since 1983 include bestsellers like David Busch's Quick Snap Guide to Digital SLR Lenses. Visit his website at http://www.dslrguides.com.

Excellent Field Guide of the awesomely capable D7000,but compact?..er no, afraid not. It's hardly smaller or lighter than the Nikon manual ( although infinitely better written ) and would have been a proper robust field guide if the book cover were laminated instead of the perishable thick paper rain magnate it currently sports. It's worth the asking price for the content alone, just disappointing it's not smaller and tougher.

I bought this book in the hope that it was going to go into advance set ups for a field guide. In my opinion, I might just have well stuck to my Dummies guide as it goes further (albeit a larger book which is too big to haul around in your bag!). The Field Guide is a nice size, it's just a shame that it's such a basic guide to all of the controls and settings of the D7K. Disappointed, waste of money for me. Suit beginner.

Having upgraded my camera from a Nikon D3100 to the D7000 I need a book to help me get to grips with my new camera.

There were a few books on offer but I plumped for this due to it having ring binder type spine, this proved to be a God's send as it meant I didn't have to lie the book face down when the need arose to use both hands, you just simply open it up & that's it.

The book was clear & concise & easy to follow, along with the screen shots of the camera's LCD it meant I was soon confident I'd be able to use the camera with no problems at all.

If you've upgraded to the Nikon D7000 & you're looking for a guide book then you could do far worse than this one, highly recommended.

I found this book excellent. I am fairly new to digital cameras and tend to forget where settings are or even what is available. This is ideal size for taking around and being spiral bound easy to keep open on pages. I also have a more in depth book at home but this one is perfect for keeping in the camera case.

Compact and relevant. Useful for those of us who aren't using their D7000 on a regular basis and can not only struggle to remember settings but also be reminded of what is possible. Fits in camera bag and can fold back on itself (spiral bound) - useful reference tool. Recommended.

My Nikon D7000 is an excellent tool however, without a tutorial I could never begin to understand it's functions.This Tutorial fits the bill precisely.

a good concept but needs a description of exactly what the camera will do at the start, plus a few recommndations rather than just stark descriptions of options.
