By Ned Middleton TOP 500 REVIEWER on July 3 2009
Format: Paperback
It is fair to say I did achieve a few notable successes with my various Nikon F series cameras and, I swear, one of these days, either I am going frame my favourite combination of camera and underwater housing or find a suitable display cabinet by way of saying thank you to a range of products which served me well. Apart from illustrating my own articles and books, one of my photos of a Killer Whale taken with an already ancient F2 fitted inside an equally dated manually operated aluminium housing, went on to grace the cover of a National Geographic video. Loyalty demands I could never part with that equipment.

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have 3 "D" series Nikons prior to acquiring my D300, which is only to say that I know my way around a Nikon Digital camera but I am not ashamed to admit that the D300 was simply a huge step up from previous bodies and getting to know it well, was a steeper learning curve than I anticipated. Then I happened across Darell Young's book that suggested I could master this amazing piece of technology. I am here to say that Darell Young has a way of clearly explaining concepts and does an amazing job of not just stating where a given function can be found on the camera but also, what the effect of that function, will be.

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.

This book should be included with the purchase of any D300

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.
