After describing all the external controls and the information display in the first chapter the author moves on to examine some of the most commonly changed settings in the camera such as exposure modes, metering, autofocus, white balance and ISO. As throughout the rest of the book the author throws in numerous tips for those relatively new to DSLRs. The discussion of the Picture Control System here is one of a number of topics which is much superior to the manual.
Following a chapter on setting up the camera, including an examination of menus, the author moves on to discuss lenses. The experienced will groan at this (particularly when they see vibration reduction yet again) but the author does at least write in a concise and informative manner, and he does mention lenses other than Nikon - something not always done in such books.Read more ›
If you're an experienced SLR user, you won't learn anything new from this book. If, on the other hand, the D7000 is your first SLR, this guide represents a practical learning tool for your journey into SLR photography.
By the time you've completed the book, you will feel more knowledgeable and have a definite understanding on how to use your new camera and a guide to basic, and even more advanced photography.
Not only does this book effortlessly explain how the camera itself works, but it gives you useful tips on general photography that can be used with any SLR camera. The book provides an overview on which lenses you can buy to use with any Nikon SLR model. I found this particularly helpful as it can be confusing to understand which lens you need to suit a specific photography need.
Overall, I am completely satisfied and happy with this product, and I would recommend it to anyone who owns the Nikon d7000, and even some of the other Nikon models like the d5000, as most of the settings and features are the same.
Well, in effect, the D7000 (the new mid-level release) is such an amazing & complex piece of technology I felt I had to learn to be able to operate it fully otherwise I wouldn't be get the best out of it and my money's worth.
Admittedly this book is more of an update and expansion to the official Nikon guide, but it does go into more detail and walks you through all the controls, features and functions in easy to follow instructions and full colour pictures. Finally the inclusion of a grey/colour balance card is a nice, handy touch, they can be more than a tenner themselves.
This may not be useful for experienced photographers, it taught me about handling the camera rather than how to take better photos, but for anyone else it's less than ten pounds well spent.
