Pass on this book - mediocre and confusing
on November 4, 2013
The book is alright, not great but ok. The author makes many references to the d700 as if the book is written primarily for those migrating from that camera to a d800. Since I am new to Nikon that was distracting and at times confusing. This author also seems to jump around without always a good flow. Many times the same paragraph is repeated word for word a page or two later deja vu, and annoying. Also, several places the author makes a settings recommendation and in same area mentions his personal settings for that setting - different then the setting recommendation - confusing. And often I am unsure what the default settings are. My advise is to pass on this book - there are other books for the d800 camera that are much better, such as "Mastering the D800" by Darrell Young.
