Nikon DSLR User's Guide for the D300s/D700/D3S/d3x
The Nikon DSLR User's Guide is a comprehensive 45-page e-book that is sent as a PDF file via e-mail; it is easily viewed in Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Well, it took long enough--at least two years from concept to the final PDF--but Robert O'Toole has out-done himself by creating a masterpiece User's Guide for using Nikon gear. After my first look at the finished PDF document and all that I can say is "Wow! Many Nikon folks show up on IPTs knowing little about properly setting up their cameras. "How do you see the histogram?' "Don't know...." "Can you set your camera so that we see the RGB histogram and blinkies in the same frame? "I once saw it done but don't know how...." For me, it has long seemed that operating a Nikon camera required degrees in Physics, Language, and Logic. With Robert's new guide those days are over. There are dozens and dozens of diagrams and screen captures and even a few photos to illustrate and explain the key points.
You will learn when, how, and why to work in Manual mode and when, why, and how to work in one of the auto-modes (by setting exposure compensation). You will learn the various camera control options and custom settings so that you can fine-tune your camera to suit your shooting style. You will learn how and why many top pros works at higher ISOs than regular Joes. And you will learn how Robert uses both Auto-ISO Control and Exposure Compensation while working in Manual Mode to routinely create perfectly exposed action photographs. He explains exactly how he sets the important camera controls. And why. Those include Release Mode, Focus Mode, and Rear Button Focus. You will learn how to set your camera and your flash to create flash blurs. You will learn which AF Mode Robert uses 90% of the time and how he sets it up using Menu/Custom Settings Menu.
He will teach you how and why to set a variety of buttons and dials. How and why to use Live View. About the only metering mode he uses. How, why, and when to switch AF points with the Multi-Selector. How and why to use the often-overlooked Info Button and the often over-looked My Menu feature. Then he takes you through the Camera Menus while dealing with the hows and whys of how he sets up the important items. If you own one of the Nikon bodies featured in this guide you owe it to yourself to get yourself a copy, make you life easier, and make your images better.
