What Readers are Saying about the author's previous Nikon guides:

This is the most helpful manual I've ever used. No serious Nikon user should be without this. I find myself referring back to this book quite often - very easy to find what I need and even easier to understand.
-S.B.

All I Need - I have been using Nikon dSLR cameras for many years. In all this time I have never come across a publication which complements the rather soulless and complex user manual so well. Your excellent work is all I need to exploit the potential of this amazing dSLR.
-Martin D.

A well written, professional helpful guide - Exciting, clear to follow, has examples and is by a professional who gives just the right amount of technical info with explanations of why and when to use those settings, all properly explained. The book is well thought through and well written.
-R.D.C.

    I just finished Doug's latest book and like his previous books he has done a superb job! This reading was unique in that I read the book to decide if the features of the 850 we significant enough to give up my Nikon 810. His ability to sort out the basic features and the hidden features makes it clear that I will now order the new camera. I have read his other books for the Nikon 5300, 5500, 7000, 7100, and the 810. I am currently mentoring two other 7100 shooters, and make the purchase of his book mandatory before I agree to help them. Don't hesitate to buy his books. Greatest asset you gat get to support your photography passion. Ron Norman Photography
