Nikon D7100 Experience - The Still Photography Guide by Douglas Klostermann

Nikon D7100 Experience is an e book user's guide that goes beyond the manual to help you learn the features, settings, and controls of this sophisticated and highly customizable camera. Most importantly, it also explains when and why to use the camera's basic and advanced features, settings, and controls in your photography.

Written in the clear, concise, and comprehensive manner of all Full Stop guides, Nikon D7100 Experience will help you learn to use your D7100 quickly and competently, to consistently make the types of images you desire. As one reader has said about Full Stop guides:

"I don't know how I could fully take advantage of all the features the camera has to offer without this publication! It's well-organized, easy to understand, and succinct enough to keep your attention while still containing a wealth of information to get the most out of your camera."

Take control of your camera and the photos you create!

This guide is designed for intermediate and enthusiast photographers who wish to take fuller advantage of the capabilities of their camera and go beyond Auto and Program modes and shoot competently in A, S, and M shooting modes; take full advantage of the sophisticated new 51 point autofocus system; and learn how, when, and why to use and customize the various controls, buttons, and features of the D7100.

For experienced photographers upgrading to the D7100, this guide explains the new and advanced features in order to quickly get you up and running and taking advantage of these capabilities, including the sophisticated 51 Point Autofocus System and its AF Modes, AF Area Modes, and Custom Settings. Plus it explains the camera controls, the 1.3x crop mode, the in-camera HDR, Multiple Exposure, and Interval Timer features, introduces the HD video capabilities, and guides you through all the Menus and Custom Settings of the D7100 in order to help you best set up the camera and its controls for your specific shooting needs.

Nikon D7100 Experience covers basic dSLR camera functions and exposure concepts for those learning digital SLR photography, and explains more advanced camera controls and operation, such as taking control of the powerful autofocus system for sharp focus of still or moving subjects, using the various metering modes and exposure
compensation for correct exposure of every image, and taking advantage of other features of the D7100.

What Readers are Saying about Doug's previous Nikon guides:

It's clear, concise and gets to the heart of the camera's multiple and often confusing options. Very highly recommended - for experienced user and beginner alike.

It’s the first guide I've read which has taken me through all the settings in an understandable way. I now feel that I have control over the camera.

This book, together with the manual that came with your camera, is all you need to start discovering the full potential of the camera.
