Mastering the Nikon D300/D300S by Darrell Young

Mastering the Nikon D300/D300S, by Darrell Young (Rocky Nook, 416 pages, $34.95), provides a wealth of experience-based information and insights for owners of these powerful and sophisticated cameras. Darrell is determined to help the user navigate past the confusion factor that often comes with complex but powerful new professional camera equipment.

The book explores the features and capabilities of the two cameras in a way that completely surpasses user’s manuals. It guides readers through the DSLR camera features with step-by-step setting adjustments, color illustrations, and detailed explanations for each option. Each button, dial, switch, screen, and menu configuration option is explored in a user-friendly manner, with suggestions for setup according to various shooting styles.

Darrell Young’s friendly and informative writing style allows readers to easily follow directions, while feeling as if a friend dropped in to share his knowledge. The learning experience for D300/D300S goes beyond just the camera itself. Detailed explanations cover White Balance, the Histogram, the Multi-CAM 3500DX autofocus system, and how the Live View and D-Movie modes work. Camera accessories such as Speedlight flash and GPS units are also considered.
