Nikon D300 Digital Field Guide - Citing the Nikon D300's high-ISO performance, sophisticated autofocus system, 6 frames per second shooting speed, and an astoundingly sharp 3" LCD screen, all for less than $2,000, PopPhoto declared the Nikon D300 the camera of the year for 2007.

Nikon D300 Digital Field Guide is filled with everything you need to know in order to take amazing photographs using your Nikon D300. This full-color portable guide walks you through the essential controls, features, and functions of the Nikon D300 digital SLR using step-by-step instructions and full-color images of each menu screen. This robust guide not only shows you how to adjust white balance, autofocus, exposure, and choose lenses, it also teaches you when and why you should adjust each of these key settings.

The Nikon D300 Digital Field Guide goes beyond camera settings to offer you a refresher guide to the principles of digital photography, covering the essentials of lighting, composition, and exposure. Filled with amazing examples, this book also presents a variety of tips and tricks to capturing portraits, candids, sports, travel, macro photography, and much more.

About the Author: J. Dennis Thomas has been behind the lens of a camera for almost 20 years. He photographs a wide variety of subjects for various clients and runs his own custom photography company, Dead Sailor Productions.

In addition to this he teaches black-and-white film photography and can be found playing guitar in music venues and acting on movie sets in and around Austin, Texas. This is his fourth Digital Field Guide.

          Comments about Wiley Publications Book: Nikon D300 Digital Field Guide by J. Dennis Thomas:

          In this book the author goes through a detailed description of the D300’s many features, controls and settings. Unfortunately, the guide is fraught with errors, and in some instances, lacks details of some specific controls. It is less boring and dry than the cameral manual, however, and for that reason alone, is a good book for the beginning to average photographer.

          The second section of the book is where the author is a bit “simplistic”, If you are a real beginner, the materials presented from chapter 4 on are adequate references to begin their journey in creative photography. The rest of us will find it to be a review, with maybe a pearl of two here and there.

          The book could stand to be re-edited so the errors and omissions could be corrected, with more detail in what effect the various settings have on the camera function (and ultimate resulting images). Part II of the book should either be eliminated, or expanded to meet the level of the more advanced photographer
