Overview

Photographer's Guide to the Nikon Coolpix P610 by Alexander White

This book is a complete guide to the operation and features of the Nikon Coolpix P610 digital camera. The book explains all shooting modes, menus, functions, and controls of this superzoom camera in clear language, accompanied by more than 350 full-color illustrations and sample photographs. This guide shows beginning and intermediate photographers how to capture still images and videos with the Coolpix P610, and how to use the camera's many shooting options to get the results they want.

The book explains topics such as autofocus, manual focus, aperture priority, shutter priority, HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography, ISO, memory cards, and flash modes. The book includes a discussion of techniques for using the camera's phenomenal zoom lens, with a maximum focal length of 1440mm, to full advantage. The book also discusses the camera's features for image transfer and remote control through the P610's built-in wireless (Wi-Fi) network), as well as its features for adding location data to images through its GPS capability.

The book includes sample images taken using the creative settings of the camera, including the Picture Control settings, which alter the color processing of images; the Scene and Special Effects shooting modes, with settings optimized for subjects such as landscapes, portraits, pets, sunsets, and action shots; and the camera's features for continuous (burst) shooting and time-lapse photography.

In addition, the book provides introductions to topics such as infrared photography, street photography, and macro photography.

The book also explains the video recording abilities of the Coolpix P610, which can shoot high-definition (HD) video with stereo sound and can record clips of high-speed video at rates up to 4 times normal speed. In addition, the book describes procedures for playing back images and videos in the camera and for using the Filter Effects option to add special effects to images after they have been captured.

In three appendices, the book discusses accessories for the Coolpix P610, including cases, external flash units, and charging and power options. The appendices include a list of useful web sites and other resources, as well as a section with "quick tips" to help users take advantage of the camera's features in the most efficient ways possible.

This guide book to the P610 camera includes a detailed Table of Contents and Index.

This is a helpful book, but don’t pay the currently advertised price. Wait for the new edition. In terms of readability and information provided, this book falls in between the basic manual provided with the camera and the reference manual that’s available as a free download from the Nikon Web site. The object of the basic manual is to help the user get an immediately successful photograph. The reference has much more detail but isn’t necessarily very readable. The book provides lots of detail on how to use the P610, and it also provides numerous screen shots of the operating system. Additionally, it provides suggestions on when or how to use some of the camera’s many capabilities. It also has an appendix with additional suggestions and helpful hints. Recommended
