Busch's book for the P7100 is unparalleled. I have been a film photographer for over 30 years and converted to the Nikon Coolpix P7100 digital camera because of it's optics and versatility. The camera is complex with many variables that you can control, many more than on the traditional high-end film cameras. This book goes beyond the Nikon camera instructions. It tells you why you may want to select certain parameters in your camera and how to maximize it's potential for a variety of shooting conditions. I consider this book to be required reading for all P7100 owners, whether new or seasoned. You and your photography will benefit from studying this fantastic text.
This, parenthetically, was a great move, because the lowest online price was offered by an outfit I discovered, at the last minute, was bogus. To top it all, Amazon gave a generous rebate when I showed that the camera I received had images already on the memory card (clearly a return).
The online manual was extremely frustrating, and I began using, and immensely enjoying the camera, based on my prior experience, and a few paragraphs from the manual.
As soon as this book became available, I got a copy, and it quickly improved my shooting experiences. Not only is it illustrated with color shots, the author includes many tips, and reasons for them, at appropriate points in the text. His sections on flash helped me navigate the camera's myriad options.
I would suggest using the book in conjunction with online photography forums. In one, for example, I got ideas about how to marry my ancient flashguns to the P7100's protocols.
Not a page-turner, this is a fine reference which quickly gives you a great deal of information about the many topics covered. Just as I customized the (indispensable) wrist strap, by designing a "string tie" of armature wire, to cinch up the strap, I would highly recommend that this book be incorporated into your information resources, but that you roam far afield to find stuff that may be specific to your situation.
From the initial setup through every camera function, the author takes you through all the basics and well into its advanced functions. Even the menus are fully explained. The author writes in a clear and easy to understand style that can be comprehended by even novice photographers.
Although the P7100 is a point and shoot, it is a very capable camera with flash, zoom and manual mode functions that can give the patient and knowledgable photographer much better photographs than an ordinary P&S can. The Nikon owners manual can only take you so far.
The book is lavishly illustrated with dozens of full color photographs on glossy high quality paper that compliment the text. There is also a glossary of terms at the end.
This is a book you will want to refer to time and time again until you learn the P7100 inside out.
