Santa Barbara, CA, November 4, 2010Mastering the Nikon D300/D300S (Rocky Nook, $34.95 USD) by Darrell Young provides a wealth of experience-based information and insights for owners of these powerful and sophisticated cameras. Darrell is determined to help the user navigate past the confusion factor that often comes with complex and powerful professional camera equipment.

This book explores the features and capabilities of the two cameras in a way that surpasses user's manuals.
