I haven't finished Thom's D eBook yet but I'd recommend it. I printed the middle (How to Shoot) section. Haven't read any other 3rd party. In addition to the already beefy D Ebook, Thom includes so many extras such as DoF guide, Flash guide, shooting check-list, Nikon. The Complete Guide to the Nikon D 3rd Edition: this page eBook (PDF file) contains everything you'd want to know about the D and Ds and how .

You say that last one looks a tad "grainy"?

It's ISO twenty-five grand!! Impressions: early Where the D2xs has wonderful features, it misses my particular mark. It was the front-runner of the DX-format Nikon bodies, but it lacked something I think all Nikon pro gear should have: instant access to the stunningly good SB flash units. The D2xs has no built-in flash.

Sigh, the D3 follows the "pro" formula: no integrated flash. Cough up more money for that. Pro must mean "excessively rich.

An ergonomic detail in the right hand grip produces one of those "I didn't expect that" reactions from your fingers as you grab it.

A sharper edge falls under the farthest joint in your fingers, allowing your fingertips to do a more secure job of handling the body, enhancing the solid feel of the camera every time you pick it up.

The way it fits your fingertip is subtly different from the D Nikon is known for ergonomic touches and this one exceeds expectations. Nikon's implementation of Live View is good. It can be dialed into existence easily and quickly, but it has some quirks. If you have the camera set to the Tripod option is selected, the image chip itself drives focus. You steer graphics onto your target and press the AF-ON button to attempt focus.

In dim light it may take a moment or three, because the camera is looking for contrast among contours within the indicator box.

Hand movement spoils the idea.

On a tripod, this mode is a champ. Hand-held focus mode uses the viewfinder's sensors to achieve focus. Well, you can't use those with the mirror up, now, can you?! So the live image goes AWAY to focus and shoot.

Both focus modes shoot the picture with a firm press of the shutter release--even gathering continuous shots if you have set it up for that--then require you to press the shutter release again to restore the Live View. Canon's 40D has a tad better Live View ergonomics during exposures. With that camera, you see what the shot is, steer the focus point around, click the picture, and automatically resume live viewing.

Unlike Nikon, however, the way you set up Live View is buried in the menus.

With either camera, Live View is a welcome addition. Long, or should I say, loooooooooooong exposures are good with the D We have seen some examples up to five minutes long using low ISO. Long exposures may pick up noise from blown or compromised pixels. Some cameras have an NR function that helps eliminate that, but the NR formula is only one level of control and sometimes leaves artifacts in its wake.

These 8 variations give the control back to you.

But during your long exposure shoot, you must gather a Flaw Frame--a black frame of the same duration as your image--to use with these Filters.

The illustration is a tiny crop viewed here at and are from an ancient Coolpix camera, not the D At ISO 6, and a sec exposure, some blown pixels make themselves visible. Several pixels didn't survive the ordeal.

Test images may come soon. We shall see. And you can get the Actions in prior and current eBooks, or the coming Lights! Digital Camera! Negatoids: Into every camera design a little putty must fall. Here are the edges we have witnessed: 1. Sometimes even the 51 focus spots don't snag focus perfectly. It may, without warning, decide to lock onto a background detail, instead of the subject you are sure you told it to regard.

Note: No camera we've seen is totally immune to poor focus. It's a dynamic, changing scene in that viewfinder, and some fraction of the time, stuff happens.

Camera-top LCD image doesn't track which focus point is active.

It's just an indicator, not a tracker. Not even Nikon. But it is repeatable and didn't disappear with the Feb 13, Firmware Update 1.

So far we have not witnessed a single reviewer who has probed the camera deeply enough to notice this: Shots made in bit RAW option are captured off the image chip by one pixel to the right and 24 pixels to the south!

Why does it happen? Background: An image chip is larger than the image that any camera lifts from its face. Extreme outer pixels are under a black mask that lets the camera's computer see what totally dark pixels should look like. Those are reference only, but here the bit mode shifts the image off-center.

Future tests will show us if this matters in cases of barrel distortion correction or fisheye lens straightening.

I doubt that any additional book is really useful to me. We have so many useful infos already on the web. And this forum is the best way to learn. But everyone may choose his own way to learn From the content of the book I cannot juge if it is bla bla or not.

Again, most of it you can get from the actual Nikon manual. But there are plenty of tips, plus additional software, that you will enjoy if you can spare the price of an extra battery. A friend of mine sent it without asking for it, when I got my camera.

I find the book great. So I have placed my order now. I want to support his work this way and pay for what I find useful and good.
