About the Author: Two-time Computer Press Association winner David D. Busch has been demystifying arcane computer and imaging technology for PC and Macintosh owners since the early 1980s. As a writer, photographer, and contributing editor for ten leading computer magazines, he has more than 100 books and 2500 articles to his credit.

In the computer and imaging field, he's been a contributing editor, columnist, or writer for magazines and online publications as diverse as CNet, HomePC, MacWorld, Internet World, NetGuide, Windows Magazine, Windows Sources, Computer Shopper, and many other publications. A PR consultant for Eastman Kodak Company for nearly 20 years, Busch has published photography articles under his by-line in Popular Photography and Imaging, Petersen's PhotoGraphic, The Rangefinder, The Professional Photographer and other photo magazines.

His photos have appeared on the covers of magazines, and in both print and television advertising. The graduate of Kent State University operated his own photo studio and was a principal in CCS/PR, Inc., one of the largest public relations firms based in San Diego, before becoming a full-time writer/reporter for the computer industry. A regular in many of the early computer magazines, such as Interface Age, Creative Computing, and Microcomputing, Busch launched his book-writing career in 1983 with pioneering programming books aimed at owners of Commodore, Apple, Tandy, and IBM PC computers.

Indeed, his initial book was one of the first ever bundled with magnetic media - a cassette tape of his own programs.

Book:Nikon D300 Guide to Digital SLR Photography by David D. Busch is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book is a gotta have it! I recently purchased the Nikon D300 camera to update my film cameras; Nikon N90s, and Mamiya 645. As much as the book that came with the camera contained helpful information, it lacked information in a lot of areas. Also, the supplied book keeps you jumping from one section of the book to another in order to follow along. DAVID BUSCHS NIKON D300 book is very well organized packed with great tips, pictures, and is easy to read/understand. Moving from film to digital has been fun. Having this book outlines and explains the new technology in an easy self paced way. I feel like I am just starting out again as a new photographer, great to have the 30+ yrs of film/camera knowledge behind me and the new knowledge in my hand readily available to review at any time. Thanks Dave!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great reference for Nikon D300 This book should be supplied by Nikon to all who buy a D300 camera. The D300 has features and strengths that are different from the D200 which David Busch does a great job hilighting. The book is well-written with excellent photos which makes it easy to find specific topics. He also includes many valuable tips for the novice and professional alike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helpful and detailed This exhaustive volume is a great reference. I find it a bit difficult to read as a bedtime book but very useful if I have a question on a lens or camera button.
