Mastering the Nikon D7000 by Darrell Young provides a wealth of experience-based information and insights for owners of the new D7000 camera. Darrell is determined to help the user navigate past the confusion factor that often comes with complex and powerful professional camera equipment.

        This book is an amazing resource on an amazing camera. It will help you get the best out of your D7000. The author not only describes in details every functionality but also shares his recommendations based on his own experience.
        Chapters on exposure, white balance and autofocus make some technical details crystal clear.

          The author's per­sonal exper­i­ence really abounds through­out the very read­able dis­cus­sion. Although it is in many ways a walk through of fea­tures, the pas­sion (as men­tioned before) is really evid­ent and makes this a superbly read­able piece of work. It is well illus­trated, but really bright and bub­bly — and I mean that in the most pos­it­ive way — it really makes you want to read through — a real chal­lenge when you are attempt­ing to work with as much tech­nical com­plex­ity that is con­veyed. This book is the miss­ing manual for this cam­era and ulti­mately a recom­men­ded read for both novice and advanced pho­to­grapher alike. It is an excel­lent value to really help you get the value out of the cam­era itself and to drive you to really start to embrace the cre­at­ive poten­tial of the cam­era. Excellent!

              Nikon D7000 is Nikon's best DSLR camera ever and I have no words to express that in any language (and I know five!). Just saying that you own one is enough to elevate your status in the Nikon community. However, pictures speak louder than words and your elevated status would be short-lived if you take sucky pictures because you didn't understand the features that make this camera awesome. This book by Darrell Young is just the one you need to squeeze the juice out of your Nikon D7K. That is after you have woken up from reading the bland user manual that shipped with the camera.

              The author has neatly put "My Recommendations" at the end of each major section and "My Conclusions" at the end of each chapter. This would help in refreshing your memory periodically since you wouldn't have to read the whole book over again. This book cleared my understanding of things I didn't follow in the user manual. Example, "Auto Gain" when shooting with "Multiple Exposure". Thoughout the book valuable tips are given plus the author has provided supplemental material (thus reducing clutter in the book) on his website (firmware upgrade, video editing software, understanding depth of field, aperture, and shutter speed, etc).

              This book will help you get the "oohs" and "aahs" from your family, neighbors, friends (including facebook friends), and curious strangers. Master this book and become an instant celebrity like I did!
