Santa Barbara, CA—Mastering the Nikon D700 provides a wealth of information and professional insights for owners of this powerful new camera.

Each chapter explores the features and capabilities of the D700 in detail, surpassing basic user manuals by providing step-by-step menu setting adjustments coupled with illustrations and logical explanations for each option. The writing style of authors Darrell Young and James Johnson allows the reader to follow directions in a friendly and informative manner, as if your friends dropped in to share their experienced knowledge without “talking down” to you, explaining the how and the why.

The learning experience for D700 beginners (and refresher information for professionals) goes beyond the camera itself. When camera features and options expand to additional Nikon equipment (such as with the use of optional Speedlights) the authors add the necessary information.

The authors’ frequent references to user manuals provided by Nikon (complete with specific page references) allow the reader to easily navigate past the confusion factor 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
  • Nikon Creative Lighting System
  • Tips and tricks and much, much more

Mastering the Nikon D700 is another title in the Nikonians Press series–the exciting, new, joint venture between Nikonians and Rocky Nook.
