Top-notch reference for beginner or experienced photographer
on February 4, 2013
I have owned and used quite a few Nikon DSLRs over the past few years, so when I pick up a new one I know the basics. Nevertheless, I was glad to receive this book to help me quickly master the differences between the D600 and other Nikons I have owned. It did not disappoint.
This is a very complete and thorough book (566 pages!) which covers some of the basics of digital photography right up through advanced subjects, such as the difference between phase-detection and contrast-detection autofocus modes. I think a D600 owner at any level could benefit from having this book. In addition to covering all the features and settings of the camera, it includes a long section on available lenses and the author's personal choices. There is an excellent chapter on the Nikon flash system, with detailed instructions on how to use it. Every item in the extensive D600 menu is explained thoroughly. And to ice the cake, there are two chapters on using the advanced video capabilities of the camera.
The book is well-written and easy to read. Highly recommended!
