Once a dedicated student of the works of Shakespeare and Dickens, Rudolf Krahm today works as a freelance translator (English/German) and editor for technical documents and books on digital imaging and photography. As an amateur photographer Krahm started out with an old Agfa Isolette, and then wouldn't let go of his completely manual Nikkormat FT2 for many years until he was swept along by the digital imaging wave. His favorite photo subjects are nature and landscape as well as his family.
"Dorau, Krahm and Kraus are all professional digital photographers from Germany who are intimately familiar with this camera's potential, and can show both novice and experienced users how to achieve consistent results while exploring the innovative side of its technology. While the text portion merely resembles an owner's manual, the true value of this interactive manual is in its CD-ROM demos. "
--Shannon Hendrickson, SciTech Book News
"The Rocky Nook Dbook series is a must for all serious amateur, semi-professional, or professional photographers who want to get the most out of their Nikon equipment, and who strive to produce impressive, polished, digital images."

"If you bought one of these cameras, or are about to, here is the first tool that you should get to go with it. It will probably become your most important accessory for your camera."
