About this book

Mastering the Nikon D300/D300S by Darrell Young provides a wealth of experience-based information and insights for owners of these sophisticated new cameras. Darrell is determined to help the user navigate past the confusion factor that often comes with complex and powerful professional camera equipment.

The book explores the features and capabilities of the two cameras in a way that surpasses the user manuals. It guides readers through the DSLR camera features with step-by-step setting adjustments, color illustrations, and detailed explanations for each option. Each button, dial, switch, screen, and menu configuration option is explored in a user-friendly manner, with suggestions for setup according to various shooting styles.

Darrell Young's friendly and informative writing style allows readers to easily follow directions, while feeling as if a friend dropped in to share his knowledge. The learning experience for D300/D300S beginners-and refresher information for professionals-goes beyond just the camera itself. Detailed explanations cover White Balance, the Histogram, the Multi-CAM 3500DX autofocus system, and how the Live View and D-Movie modes work. Camera accessories such as Speedlight flash and GPS units are also considered.

Biography

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.

Darrell has used Nikon cameras and Nikkor lenses since 1980. He has an incurable case of Nikon Acquisition Syndrome (NAS) and delights in working with Nikon's newest digital cameras. Living near Great Smoky Mountains National Park has given him a real concern for, and interest in, nature photography.

He loves to write, as you can see in the Resources area of the Nikonians.org community. He joined the community in 2000 and his literary contributions led to an invitation to become a Founding Member of the Nikonians Writers Guild.
