    another hit in the Nikon field guide series, January 4, 2011

    (REAL NAME)
      

    The new year (January 2011) is heralding the arrival of numerous photo books for Nikon’s newest camera, the D7000. One of the first to arrive is the Nikon D7000 Digital Field Guide by J.D. Thomas. The field guide isn’t meant to replace your official Nikon manual (which I find sleep-inducing, at times). However, the field guide is easier to use – maybe it’s the photos, layout, color or a combination of these elements. In that regard, I think the author accomplishes his stated goal, “… explaining the camera & its functions… in a way that’s easier to understand.” It doesn’t hurt that the author seems genuinely enthusiastic about the camera.

    The book’s layout progresses from an overview of the camera’s “geography” (knobs, buttons, and screens) to how the camera functions. There’s useful info throughout these sections dedicated to focusing, metering, choosing lenses,navigating the menu system and setting up the D7000. There are many “tips” offered. One thing I learned in reading through this section is that I can view most current camera settings on the larger LCD screen by simply pressing the “info” button (lower/right on back of camera).

    Another chapter covers the video capabilities in this camera. This is the main reason I purchased the D7000. This section starts with an overview of video-capable DSLRs and then the specifics of recording video on the D7000. Here, I learned the importance of setting the “picture control” and “shooting mode” before starting recording. Also, I now understand the use of the shutter release focusing (pressing ½ ways down-just like with still photography) prior to pressing the video button. Finally, I have a better appreciation of using manual movie settings while recording video.

    The second half of the book (chapters 8 through 15) covers specific photo opportunities: action/sports, macro/close-up, nature/landscape, and portraiture/flash. The discussion with example photos, camera settings throughout this section was very useful. The coverage of shooting portraits also provided diagrams of the lighting set-up, which I found helpful.
    Finally, there is an extensive index that will help one find a particular subject.

    Being a fan of Mr. Thomas’s prior Field Guides (I have his Nikon D300 guide) I was eager to get this text. I can recommend it highly; it seems to be a real value (i.e. Lots of info, nearly 300 pages, for a low price compared to other D7000 texts coming out).

    Awesome D7000 guide, January 2, 2011

    Poor Humble “Poor Humble” (Brooklyn, NY) –

    I have been through a few Nikons and their respective field guides by J. Dennis Thomas. These books are great. I received my D7000 field guide a few days ago. Great addition to the field guide series. One of the reasons I love these books is for their small paperback size. I can chuck this into my camera bag and use it for reference whenever I need to. The guide is very practical and in depth. The chapters are laid out intuitively. You can start reading from front to back or just jump into whichever topic you need help with. The writing is clear and easy to understand. The book is loaded with color photos, diagrams and examples. There’s many useful advice for improving my photography throughout the book but not so much that it gets annoying. It’s actually just the right amount of very useful tips subtly injected within the context of the paragraphs. There’s a free color checker and grey card included in the book that’s pretty nice. Chapter 15 is a pretty sweet primer into stock photography.

    I really don’t have anything bad to say about the book. It’s really nice and if you need a book that reads like a cool conversation and will help you get the most from your D7000, I really suggest you consider this one. It’s very like-able.
