Photographic technology, however, has moved on and I must confess to finding the conversion to digital a very steep learning curve. But I say this in order to be helpful. Having purchased a great deal of new equipment in readiness for an extensive series of trips designed to take me to the world's greatest diveable shipwrecks, I spared no expense in attending all manner of courses and also purchased the latest books, CDs and DVDs in an attempt to pick up where I left off. Sadly, not all those products were worthy of the purchase price - in some cases, not even the postage cost. Furthermore, finding some of those inferior products given "5 Star reviews" by people who appear to be unable to give any item a lower rating is really confusing.
I came to this book, however, because I was instantly caught by the title to which my immediate, albeit silent, mental response was to say to myself "I wish." Yes, I wish I had mastered the Nikon D300 - but I am getting there! And the reason why I am getting there is because this is an easy-to-read, no nonsense book which tells me what I want to know.Read more ›
I love this book for how easy it is to follow and how much information, that it imparts. If you REALLY want to unlock the power of this camera and become so comfortable in your use of it, that it becomes second nature, you really should buy this book, it is undoubtedly, the best learning resource for this camera that I have ever seen.
The Author refers to the manual during his instructions - but it would be a lot better if he had written the manual for Nikon. He tells not what the buttons do - but what difference it makes when you usse them. After having the camera for over a year - and the book for 2 weeks - I feel like I am finally understanding it's functions and making it mine. Thanks to Darrell Young for taking the time to write out his knowlege and sharing it with us.

Text is too small and pale. Difficult to read which detracts from the value of the content.Published 6 months ago by Dave
