Book: David Busch's Nikon's D4/D4S Guide to Digital SLR Photography (1st Edition) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you want to be a better photographer, know your camera To be a better photographer, you need to know your camera. David Busch goes into detail in his books on mastering your controls and their functions. His books go into more detail than the manuals that come with your camera. Picture illustration throughout the book also a plus. I also have David Busch's Nikon Books for the D700, D7000, and of course this one for the D4/D4s. A seasoned photographer who knows their camera inside out probably wouldn't find this book useful but if you truly don't know or understand all the functions of your camera I promise you will learn from this book. Any time you purchase a new camera, I would strongly suggest buying the accompanying book to go with it. Take it from someone who is still in the Learning Curve
