Mastering The Nikon D7000 book now shipping

Rocky_Nook_Nikonians-Press_125.jpgJust in time for summer reading, Mastering the Nikon D7000 by Darrell Young is printed and now on its way to book retailers. Advance copies have already been received by the author and members of the publication team.

D7000-Cover_200.jpgProfusely illustrated with step-by-step setting adjustments, easy to follow menus screens, and detailed explanations for the proper use of every button, dial, switch, and menu option, this latest book by Darrell Young in the NikoniansPress/Rocky Nook series is (in a simple word) huge.

The author has already explained his enthusiasm for the Nikon D7000 in a recent News Blog. He likes to describe the camera to his friends as "a great value for its robust capability—yet medium price."

Mastering the Nikon D7000 has 496 pages, including table of contents and index.
That's nearly 100 more pages than Darrell's previous best seller, Mastering the Nikon D300/D300S.

In a recent interview, the author tells us the Nikon D7000 presented a unique challenge in terms of page count (and he's got an extra 100 pages in reserve available online):

"A book only has finite space before it becomes too big and bulky to be used in a portable way. Subsequently, in addition to the printed book there are free additional downloadable Darrell-Young_200.jpgsections available to readers, at a private website address.

Most users of the D7000 will have at least some experience with other DSLRs. However, some new users have little experience with DSLR cameras and are unsure about how to change a lens, format a memory card, and charge the battery.

I added special material for these new users in downloadable documents, so as not to make the book bigger than it needed to be for more advanced users. In addition there is downloadable material on basic photography, such as understanding the aperture, shutter speed, and principles like depth of field. All said, in addition to the book’s 496 pages, there are nearly 100 more pages available by download."

If you prefer reading in the new digital reading, O’Reilly Media has already released the eBook versions of the book and soon the Kindle version will be available on The print version will be in mass distribution by mid-month. If you have been thinking about preordering the book, now’s the time.

Bundle and Save
This is an excellent time to take advantage of the preorders. Amazon currently has a preorder rate of $20.31 USD (saving you $14.64) and all books in the NikoniansPress/Rocky Nook series include a special Nikonians 50%-off voucher discount for a one year Gold Membership in the Nikonians community. This will save $37.50 on Gold Membership. That's an impressive combined total of $52.14 savings on a book selling for less than $21 at the (limited time available) preorder rate.
