5.0 out of 5 stars Must have --- trust me! June 23 2012
By cameraf4 - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I moved from film photography into digital, I bought Dennis' Field Guide for that camera to help me "figure-it-out." With each successive DSLR I have bought, my first action was to buy the Digital Field Guide on that camera. Best move a person could ever make. Very thorough. Very detailed. Great easy-to-understand color photos. The D800 costs a good chunk-of-change and can do a ton of "stuff." The very best way to learn what you can do and how to do it is to buy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The When and How Manual Aug. 13 2012
By PhotoBuff58 - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The field guides provide the information your manual left out. This explains the various menus and options available on your Nikon D800 in a methodical manner. Your manual explains what each selection does but leaves it to you determine when and how to use it. This provides the when and how. If you want to get the most out of this fantastic camera you must have this field guide. I was fortunate to spend 10 days in China with three pros who teach the Nikon School of Photography and learn how to use this camera to its fullest. This guide still provides additional information to help me get the most out of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A D800 Field Guide...and so much more. June 29 2012
By Jeff R. Clow - Published on
Having recently acquired the Nikon D800, I was overwhelmed with the manual that they provided with the camera. It was too dense, and in my opinion - not written in an easy to understand style.

That's where this fine guide comes in from J. Dennis Thomas. He has written the manual that Nikon should have written - easy to understand, and full of great user tips that any photographer can utilize effortlessly. And on top of that, he's added great chapters on how to set up your new camera, how to work with video (which is new to many shooters), and even which lenses one should consider if they are going to be adding to their lens collection.

And there's more! Chapters with some good advice on how to shoot landscapes, portraits and even product shots. Once I read the chapters on the D800, I realized that many of the functions that weren't apparent when I purchased the camera about a month ago are now very clear to me because of this fine field guide.

Most people read these reviews because they wonder if the book is worth purchasing. If you'd like to learn how to get the most out of your new full frame D800, then you should pick this fine field guide up without hesitation.

Highly recommended!

2.0 out of 5 stars Pass on this book - mediocre and confusing Nov. 4 2013
By Dwight - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is alright, not great but ok. The author makes many references to the d700 as if the book is written primarily for those migrating from that camera to a d800. Since I am new to Nikon that was distracting and at times confusing. This author also seems to jump around without always a good flow. Many times the same paragraph is repeated word for word a page or two later deja vu, and annoying. Also, several places the author makes a settings recommendation and in same area mentions his personal settings for that setting - different then the setting recommendation - confusing. And often I am unsure what the default settings are. My advise is to pass on this book - there are other books for the d800 camera that are much better, such as "Mastering the D800" by Darrell Young.
