Mastering the Nikon D300--New from Rocky Nook: A wealth of information and insights for owners of this powerful new camera Santa Barbara, CA—In Mastering the Nikon D300 (Rocky Nook, $39.95 USD), author Darrell Young leads you on an exploration of the features and capabilities of the powerful new Nikon D300 camera.
Loaded with a wealth of information and professional insights, this book surpasses the basic user manual by providing step-by-step menu setting adjustments coupled with illustrations and logical explanations for each option. With his friendly and informative manner, Darrell makes the reader feel as if a friend dropped in to share his experience and knowledge while explaining the hows and whys in simple terminology.
The learning experience for D300 beginners (and refresher information for professionals) goes beyond the camera itself, covering additional Nikon equipment, such as the use of optional Speedlights.

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell) is an information technology engineer by trade and has been an avid photographer for over 35 years. He has a rather large family, with his wife and five children, so he has a constantly interesting flow of photographic opportunities. In fact, his entire family uses Nikon cameras to pursue what has become a cohesive family hobby.
Darrell delights in using Nikon's newest digital cameras but if pressed, he will admit to being a "closet" film user too. Living next to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park has given him a real concern for, and interest in, nature photography. Darrell loves to write, as you can see in the Resources area of the Nikonians.org community. He joined the community in the year 2000, and his literary contributions led to his invitation to become a Founding Member of the Nikonians Writers Guild.
