    Makes the learning curve a little less steep!, November 16, 2009

    I recently purchased a D300s as an upgrade from my D90 because I was trying to get away from the Auto modes and I figured that the D300s would make me step up my game. Well, I didn’t realize that the learning curve was going to be so steep.

    A friend of mine has bought a few of the digital field guide books and loved them (the new Creative Lighting System guide in particular). She told me that the writing was straight, to the point and super easy to understand, and she was spot on. This book breaks down all of the technical aspects and explains them in a no-nonsense and easy to understand way.

    Not only does the author go through and explain every button and menu option, he explains situations where you might want to use them. My favorite part of the book is the real world applications. These chapters explain a bunch of different types of photography and give real in depth advice on how to achieve pictures just like the pros do. There is also a great chapter on lenses which is very helpful especially because the author doesn’t simply recommend the high end Nikon models but also gives you advice on some great lenses from other companies. Let’s face it, not all of us can afford Nikon’s pro lenses, but we would still like a piece of quality glass.

    To put it bluntly I was on the verge of getting rid of the D300s and going back to the D90 and the Auto modes, but this book has helped me get over that learning curve, stop being frustrated with my camera and start taking great shots!

    At last my copy of the D300s Digital Field Guide has arrived! Anytime I get a new camera I can’t wait for the “DFG” to come out. The book describes all of the bells, whistles, knobs, and buttons so I can easily figure out what each thing does.
    Not only does this book cover all of the camera functions, but it also helps you learn how to do all kinds of different types of photography from action shots to weddings AND it even helps you to pick out the perfect lenses for your favorite type of photography.
    This book is a great learning tool filled with practical easy to understand info about the camera and much, much more.
    PS: The gray card / color checker that comes free with the book is an awesome bonus. It has made my color balancing SO much easier.

    This guide covers just about everything you need to learn about your D300s. I found it to be quite technical without going overboard with jargon so that it’s easy enough for the layperson to understand. The section on lenses is completely up to date and even includes the newest lenses some of which aren’t even available to the general public yet (the 85mm DX macro lens). The real world applications cover things very in depth, but seem to follow the author’s general interests. Not that that’s a bad thing, he’s very well versed in the topics he knows and the expertise comes through. At the end of the day this book is much more useful than the guide the camera came with and the full color photographs and concise explanations make this book a must have for anyone wanting to expand the knowledge of their camera.
