Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I want to personally thank each and every one of you who buys one of my books, either in print or Kindle format. Your purchase allows me to create future books and articles. The Nikon D300 and D300S are fine cameras with a robust quality that is quite addictive. Once you've used one it's nearly impossible to go back to a lesser camera. I hope you get a lot of enjoyment out of your camera and my book. Remember my Mastering the Nikon DSLR series in the future when you get your next Nikon (assuming you are like me, with an incurable case of Nikon Acquisition Syndrome).  - Darrell Young, February 6, 2011.

About the Author

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell) is an information technology engineer by trade. He's been an avid photographer since 1968 when his mother gave him a Brownie Hawkeye camera.

He has been an avid Nikon photographer since the early 1980s when he acquired his first Nikon, an FM. Since that time he has owned and used virtually every Nikon body, both film and digital. When a new Nikon is released, Darrell is first in line to get the new camera body. He has one of the worst cases of Nikon Acquisition Syndrome (N.A.S.) ever diagnosed--and it leads him to not only take pictures, but also write books and articles.

Darrell has been an author for the Nikonians.org community since 2000 and is often seen in the Nikonians.org forum and other forums around the Internet. As a technical writer Darrell's specialty is explaining complex things in everyday language. Before he writes about a camera he first fully reads the user's manual, testing each setting and noting any improvements or differences from previous Nikon cameras. He then takes the camera out into the real world, shooting nature scenics, portraits, events, and action to discover how the camera performs for each style of photography. Next, he tests the camera with various lenses, flash units, and Nikon accessories. Only then does he start writing the book about the camera. His books are based on real-world experience and knowledge.

Look no further, as this is the best and most comprehensive guide to mastering your Nikon D300 or D300s. I recently upgraded my camera body from a D200 to the D300s and I was looking for something to guide me through the additional settings and functions of my new camera. This book is everything that I look for in a photography instruction guide of this kind. Overall, this book is well laid out. There are plenty of photos that are well numbered, with easy step by step instructions to guide you through the menus and settings. Cameras are getting more and more sophisticated and even a seasoned digital photographer will find this guide extremely handy. Highly recommended for beginners to seasoned shooters.

A top pick for Nikon collections is Darrell Young's MASTERING THE NIKON D300/D300S, providing a wealth of experience-based information for owners of these Nikon models. Chapters explore each camera's features with an eye to exploring adjustments, tweaking, options, and all possibilities inherent in the complex systems. Color screen shot examples throughout make for a winning reference!

This hard copy book is great in color. Color adds a lot to understanding the difference between the D300 and the D300S. I made the mistake of buying the Kindle version, but my Kindle DX does not print color. I own the Nikon D300; the author shows us the difference between the two cameras. A great book. Buy the hard copy.

Seems one can never fully master the newer, high-end digital SLR's but this is a great book to keep close to your D300S (in our case). My hubby reads it when time permits and is always learning a new technique or tip. Easy to follow wording which is most imperative as if one doesn't have the ability to get a point across, then you've wasted time & money. Young does a great job! Now hubby is looking to move up to the FX, so I will likely inherit this one when he does, as I did with his old D80 that I enjoy immensely, thanks to helpful books by good authors!

I've found this very useful, compliments the owners manual very well and even references so you can get the most information out of having both. I bought the book used just as I bought by D300s used and don't regret either purchase.

I own two of Mr. Young's manuals, and they are excellent. They will tell you everything there is to know about your camera, and they are much more detailed than the manual that comes with the camera.
If you are investing the money in one of these higher-end cameras, spend a few dollars more to ensure that you get the most out of that investment. I know the D300 frontwards and backwards, and I STILL carry this book with me. The same goes for his D800 manual: top shelf information from page one.

This is a very helpful, colorful, and insightful book on the use of a d300s. It is for all levels of expertise- meaning- that one can get as down to the nuts and bolts of this camera as one would want to. OR- simply read the sections you need and disregard the rest.

Maybe the best part is the author's own usage of the camera and settings. His suggestions such as "in a basketball game, I use this focus setting, this ISO, and be careful to look for...." That is what I found to be the most helpful. New users to this camera can certainly use that kind of help.

Much recommended!
