I am an experienced photographer and have owned two other Nikon dslr cameras.
I find this book brilliant. I ordered the kindle version so that I can refere to it on my phone when out and about should I need to.
It really is about the Z7, the features of the camera and how to use them, with sugested settings for different situations.
It is written in as plain an English as is possible for such a technical book.
I thoroughly recommend it.
I've been an avid photographer for many years, and have several Nikon DSLRs, so little in the Z7 was "new" to me, although some things have changed from, say, the D850 and similar cameras. However, this book does a nice job of laying out the controls, how to use them, and, more importantly, why you would want to use them. The book is mostly about the Z7 and how to use it in different conditions, but it also acts as a bit of a tutorial in non-Auto photography, which many newcomers to the photography world may find useful and interesting. While I'm the first to admit most of my routine photography is done in fully Auto mode, and the Z7 does a great job in that mode, I do enjoy going to manual or one of the intermediate options (aperture or shutter priority).
The book's layout is logical, the writing is pleasant and readable (some photo books are simply regurgitated owner's manuals, and not very helpful), and there's a good dose of illustrations and photos to break up the text and show what the author is talking about. I like the way Busch takes each setting of the camera, and shows how and why you would want to use it.
The book's target audience is clearly someone who has had experience with DSLRs before, although total newbies will not be lost by most of the discussions. By the same token, those who are used to Nikon DSLRs will find less useful content here, simply because many of the Z7s controls and settings mirror those of other DSLRs. So, the ideal reader is an intermediate, perhaps moving up to a camera like the Z7 for the first time. Fortunately, this is the largest chunk of the Z7's market, and Busch does a nice job throughout.
