From the Author
Although they share some features, the new Nikon V1 mirrorless camera is very different from its cousin, the Nikon J1. That's why I decided it was important to write this book, dedicated exclusively to the more advanced V1 model, rather than try to lump the two into a single book. The Nikon V1 has a high resolution electronic viewfinder that the J1 lacks, an LCD with twice the resolution, both an electronic and mechanical shutter, an accessory shoe for add-ons like a tiltable flash and a GPS unit, and the ability to use an external microphone for even better movies. Clearly, the V1 is an enthusiast's camera.
But what if you're not an enthusiast -- but hope to become one, or simply want to take better pictures? In that case, you really need this book written specifically for your camera to show exactly how to use every feature and option of the V1. If you're in love with photography, but so far haven't been in love with learning to use cameras, let me help you get the most from your V1.
My Nikon V1 Guide to Digital Movie Making and Still Photography is divided into four parts. Part I, "Getting Started with your Nikon V1" includes three chapters that will help you set up your camera, start shooting great pictures and movies in minutes, and explain every control, button, and dial, and how to use them.
Part II, "Beyond the Basics," has four chapters that show you how to use the V1's amazing Motion Snapshot and Smart Photo Selector modes, and the best settings to use for the Still Image and Movie modes -- including how to shoot incredible slow motion movies at 400 and 1200 frames per second. Other chapters explain how to fine tune exposure, and use the V1's lightning-fast autofocus to get sharp images every time. An additional chapter zeroes in on movie-making techniques and tips.
In Part III, "Advanced Tools" I guide you through every menu option and offer advice on what each does -- or does not do -- and when you should, or should not, use a particular setting. Rather than re-hash the Nikon menu, I provide a wealth of useful tips. There's a full chapter on using lenses, with an analysis and review of every lens available for the V1, and another chapter on working with available light and flash.
Read Part IV, "Enhancing Your Experience," to pick up tips you'll find nowhere else on using accessories like iPads/tablets, iOS/Android smart phones, using GPS, and working with WiFi to share your images. There are also introductions to available software, and some trouble-shooting/preventive tips.
Whether you're a dSLR owner who has picked up the Nikon V1 as a compact or backup camera, a would-be enthusiast who wants to learn all of the camera's great features, or a beginner who wants to learn the basics of photography while mastering the Nikon V1, sit down with me and we'll explore this camera together. You're in for a great ride!
UPDATE: Neither the AS-N1000 accessory shoe adapter nor FT-1 lens adapter were available when I wrote this book. You should know that the shoe adapter does not allow use as a hot shoe for external flashes such as the SB-400 (despite what is stated in the book), and that the FT-1 requires a camera firmware update to operate. The firmware update also adds pixel mapping to the Setup menu. This information came to light after the book had gone to press.

I have the Nikon manual, but zzzzzzzzzzzz boring and hard to navigate quickly. Enter David Busch's book.
SUPERB. Easy , I mean REALLY easy to follow. It starts with remove lens cap, and insert battery , with photos! Don't laugh, it is
really great. It gives you what you should be seeing with photos, or diagrams, as you look at "Menu" , etc on the camera.
This book is not only NOT BORING, but VERY HELPFUL, for many levels of photographers or wanna be's like myself.
I HIGHLY recommend this if you are new to the Nikon cameras or to the 1 v 1 series. I wish I could give it 10 stars.
