    Nikon D300s

    A comprehensive read packed with helpful information. I find myself referring to this book over the guide which came with the camera! David Busch explains every point in depth from camera set up, choosing lenses, right exposure, lighting, setting white balance and more through illustrative photos, middle sized print which is easy on the eyes.

    If you are seeking to understand this camera fully, I would recommend this book.

    Excellent reference/resource

    I purchased the D300S and found the book @ about the same time. This camera has so many features that even seasoned professional photographers friends don't know how they all work. The text is clear -- a beginner can follow but an experienced photographer isn't annoyed. Instructions re: settings are given in a situational context and deviations from the "norm" are explained, too. I wish I had discovered Busch's book when I bought my D300 in 2008.
