Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell) is an information technology engineer by trade. He's been an avid photographer since 1968 when his mother gave him a Brownie Hawkeye camera.
Darrell has used Nikon cameras and Nikkor lenses since 1980. He has an incurable case of Nikon Acquisition Syndrom (NAS) and delights in working with Nikon's newest digital cameras.
Living near Great Smoky Mountains National Park has given him a real concern for, and interest in, nature photography.
He loves to write, as you can see in the Resources area of the Nikonians.org community. He joined the community in 2000 and his literary contributions led to an invitation to become a Founding Member of the Nikonians Writers Guild.

Darrel's incredibly thorough, patient style takes you through every detail of this camera with some excellent general commentary on key topics, eg histograms and HDRI, fastflash sync etc. This really is a masterwork which will satisfy the relatively inexperienced user seeking a rapid but pleasurable ride up the learning curve right up to the highly experience user wanting to flesh out understanding of every buried menu feature, why it's there, what it can do togther with a well informed reccomendation for initial settings.
The space devoted to the various Auto and Scene functions is perfectly adequate but fortunately takes up only 22 of the book's 479 pages. You can see where the emphasis is here, if you simply want a beginners guide this is not it. I am so impressed with this book that I shall be buying a kindle version to ensure I am never without it.
When the book arrived, I sat down and started reading it with the D7000 to hand. It took me about a week to read the book and I now think I've got a pretty clear idea as to how to set up and use the camera for my style of photography.
The book itself is 479 pages and is printed on good quality paper with excellent photographs of the all the settings and of every menu. One of the things I liked about the book was that he did not pad it out with loads of basic things such as how to remove a lens or charge up the battery. The book assumes the D7000 is not your first DSLR. If it is, however, he gives a link to the publisher's website from where you can access and download 10 different pdf files which provide a wealth of additional information. For example, there is a fifteen page file entitled "Understanding Depth of Field, Aperture and Shutter Speed"
I was very impressed with this book and it is certainly the best camera guide that I've read to date. Highly recommended regardless of the level of your experience with other cameras.
As a bonus this book is never boring to read!
For those (like myself) who have just upgraded from a D90 its pretty much the perfect way to get to grips with this top end camera, although I suspect newcomers to the DSLR game might find it a little overwhelming. Its also worth noting that in a couple of places (interval timer, Auto focus modes) you have to work quite hard to understand exactly what the author means, but other than that it does what it intends to do and is fully worth its four stars.

Not been through all of it but beats the user manual hands down.Published on 23 Aug. 2014 by Raymond B.
This book is well written, however, it does little more than put the camera's instruction book in a different way. Read morePublished on 24 July 2014 by CloudR
