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.

When I first received the book i was quite surprised at it's size, the cover, pages and content are all of a very high quality. The chapters and content are laid out in a logical manner and not only does it cover everything you need it is also an enjoyable read. The book is crammed full of colour photographs. The topics are covered in sufficient depth and include everything you need to know and there is a handy section on updating your firmware. The book dose not just describe what the D7000 functions are like other books I have seen, it tells you why you should be using them which adds context.
This is a really useful book and even though I would describe myself as having a very good knowledge on photography I think there is something for everyone in this book. If I upgrade my camera in the future I would have no hesitation in buying a book by this author. The book I would suggest is too big for your camera bag, there is also a stripped down version which some people may prefer. (for me I want as much information as possible). There is also a handy little iPhone App by this the same Author. You have to pay extra (£6 I think) but that's my field guide when I am out-and-about.
In summary, well written, good value and very useful.
Well, yes and no.
The structure of the book is apparently logical in the sense that Busch tackles photographic topics thematically; the assumption being that a novice will be able to hunt around different chapters for information relevant to whatever specific task they are attempting to do. In practice I've found this highly problematic and a time consuming way to resolve questions. I've even had to resort to note-taking as I use the index to assemble what I am able to grasp as relevant (often guessing) information. I assume a seasoned pro would know what to look for --but I don't. As a novice who just wants to get on with the task in hand, I resent having to hunt about in this way. I also find it somewhat confusing and consequently undermining of my fragile confidence as a learner. It's frequently a swamping trek full of distracting side-routes.
The book is really aimed at photography geeks as enthralled with this sophisticated tech-toy as the author is. It's packed with insightful asides about this and that technical aspect and has loads of handy info for those in the zone, so-to-speak. But try using it to get a straight-forward step-guide to doing something specific like, for example, making an accurately balanced copy photograph of a piece of art using natural light only, and you are in for a slog.
I've found much more helpful guides on little tutorials on the net. Not what I want to be doing when I've paid for a fat tome claiming to be the authoritative guide to my new camera.
So yes, Busch will give clear guides to basic photographic topics give the reader a grasp of the theoretical fundamentals, but it's up to the reader to put it all together and apply it.
