This book is very comprehensive without being overwhelming. Busch organises everything for the reader so one doesn't have to be constantly cross-referencing, and the print and graphics are clear and understandable. A must have for your camera bag to reference in the field. 5 stars.

This is an excellent book that covers the A - Z of your camera. It is well written, easy to read, and the perfect companion. It is much easier to follow than NIkon's instruction manual. Lots of helpful tips, and easy to follow instructions. I am so glad I bought this product!

Wonderful portable resource. July 18 2011
By Bale Bayley - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound
I purchased this book as well as the author's comprehensive guide to the Nikon D7000, David Busch's Nikon D7000 Guide to Digital SLR Photography. This one has a permanent place in my camera bag, as it has in depth explanations of each setting and control on the camera, how to use them, when not to use them, and why you should use them. Other books I've seen just rehash the information in the original camera manual, which, altho good, doesn't have the full explanations I found in this Field Guide. Much better than a folding command card, and just as portable. I also recommend the author's full guide if you want to learn photography with the D7000, and need more depth in learning how features work.

Just what you need to know about your D7000 July 28 2011
By Western Photo Reviews - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound
Author David Busch continues to impress with this new series of pocketable books that serve as a supplement to his comprehensive camera guides for the leading digital cameras. This one offers a companion for the sensational Nikon D7000, in a spiral-bound form factor that is easy to slip in a camera bag and have available at all times. The D7000 has some interesting features, including a new exposure system system and full HD movie-making capabilities, and its 16.2 megapixel sensor provides better image quality than the more costly, but aging, Nikon D300s model. As in the other books in this series, Busch explains them all in a way that's easy to understand. His novel approach is to condense all the essential information about each and every control on the camera into a multi-page "roadmap" that explains their functions without the need to leap around from page to page, as is the case with the Nikon manual. He devotes two full chapters to outlining every menu option, and actually provides much more detail than you'll find in most of the other "expanded" guides for the Nikon D7000.

This book is a worthy replacement for those laminated cheat sheets that fold out into six index card sized tabs with one-sentence summaries of most of the menu settings, too. As with all of the Compact Field Guides we've reviewed, this one offers clear, easy to understand guidance in a most convenient format. While this portable guide duplicates some of the information found in David Busch's Nikon D7000 Guide to Digital SLR Photography, the two make a great pair for home and field. We think you'll want to buy them both to have the information you need on the go and for study at home.

Missing manual Dec 26 2011
By ritewinger - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I have the manual, the full size version of Busch's D7000 guide, a cheat sheet, and now the Compact Field Guide, and I must confess I like this. Not as compact as I thought it would be, barely fits in MY bag, but that's a non issue, the book size is clear in description, and my camera bag is somewhat small. I like the layout, especially the settings chapters. Nice to turn on camera and go page to page. Fine section on flash, quickly set up on board flash or speedlight in no time. Seems to be a good video section, though I don't use that myself, I might in future, and shooting tips appears it would be a big help to new DSLR users.
I am getting older and I don't have the memory I once did, I read the manual and promptly forgot most instantly, so until I get familiar with the D7000, this guide will accompany me wherever I take the camera. I would recommend this to anyone that would like to smooth out the D7000 learning curve.
Fine job, Mr. Busch.....

David Busch's Compact Field Guide for the Nikon D7000 is exactly what I was looking for. It's compact enough to be carried in my camera bag, yet packed full of useful information. It provides clear, concise explanations of the controls and functions of the D7000. It allows me to take full advantage of this marvelous camera.

An additional resource July 28 2011
By Image Print Reviews - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound
We love Busch's new Compact Field Guide series, which extracts just the information you need about your camera while out shooting pictures, and presents all the controls, dials, settings information and complete menu options in a spiral-bound book you can take anywhere. If you want to learn photography with your new camera, you should turn to the author's full-sized, 500-page guidebook, David Busch's Nikon D7000 Guide to Digital SLR Photography. But if you need crucial advice when away from your studio or home, this compact book has everything you need at your fingertips.
