Mastering the Nikon D300—New from Rocky Nook

A wealth of information and insights for owners of this powerful new camera

Santa Barbara, CA—In Mastering the Nikon D300 (Rocky Nook, $39.95 USD), author Darrell Young leads you on an exploration of the features and capabilities of the powerful new Nikon D300 camera.

Loaded with a wealth of information and professional insights, this book surpasses the basic user manual by providing step-by-step menu setting adjustments coupled with illustrations and logical explanations for each option. With his friendly and informative manner, Darrell makes the reader feel as if a friend dropped in to share his experience and knowledge while explaining the hows and whys in simple terminology.

The learning experience for D300 beginners (and refresher information for professionals) goes beyond the camera itself, covering additional Nikon equipment, such as the use of optional Speedlights. Frequent references to the user manual provided by Nikon (with specific page references) allow the reader to easily navigate past the confusion that often comes with new equipment.

Topics include:

  • Metering systems
  • Auto and manual modes
  • Custom setting banks
  • Histograms and white balance settings
  • Shooting menu banks
  • Auto and custom settings
  • Picture controls and playback menus
  • Set up, retouch, and My menus

  • Tips and tricks and much more
