Many insights into how the camera works
on 10 April 2010
As has been mentioned, all the photographic examples are B+W are not brilliantly reproduced but apart from that, this book gives insights how the technologies used work together to make the sum of the D700 greater than the parts.
Nikon's Creative Lighting System gets a chapter but this subject alone needs a book to itself to cover comprehensively. I found the chapter "Exposure and the AF System" particularly useful, it covers Nikon's Scene Recognition System which one easily forgets about because it doesn't have such a catchy name such as Face Recognition. This chapter has many tips on how to use the varying autofocus options.
Although I can't compare this book to other D700 ones, it has proved to be most insightful with much information & tips not found in the instruction manual & is certainly more digestible! My imprssion that the D700 is an amazing camera & one I'm likely to be using for many years to come has been reinforced my Simon's excellent guide.
