About the Author
Darrell Young (aka Digital Darrell) is a full-time author and professional photographer in the East Tennessee, USA area. He is a member of Professional Photographers of America, the North American Nature Photography Association, and Nikon Professional Services--and adheres to the ethical guidelines of those fine organizations. Darrell has been photographing people, events, and places professionally for over 30 years, with a special interest in natural history. His mother gave him a Brownie Hawkeye camera in 1968 at the young age of 10 years and awakened a lifelong interest in capturing slices of time. Living in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains--near Great Smoky Mountains and the Blue Ridge Parkway--has given him a real concern for the natural environment and a deep interest in nature photography. You'll often find Darrell standing behind a tripod in the beautiful mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina. Since about 2000 Darrell has been an active blogger and article writer on photographic subjects. In 2008 his first photography book was published and, since then, he has authored over a dozen books on the technical side of photography, with a special interest in helping new photographers fully understand their complex cameras so they can use them for more effective and enjoyable photography. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

The Rolls Royce of instruction booksReviewed in the United Kingdom on 6 August 2018
I had been waiting for the printed 600+ page book on the D850 and in the end gave it up as a bad job. The book just was not in the UK and was very late. In the end I decided to buy the Kindle version because I now have a Kindle Fire colour tablet (the pictures in the book are in colour). As usual (I have had a lot of Nikon cameras) this instruction book is absolutely thorough right down to the fine detail. That is why I have called it the Rolls Royce of instruction books. I had been using the camera based on a previous full frame camera settings. Within the first 20 pages of this book I was changing things. The upgrade from the D810 to D850 is enormous and I had no idea about its capabilities. If you need one book to get the true potential out of this camera then buy this one. It's just brilliant and so easy to read.

Brilliant.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 27 August 2019
I have just finished reading this book from front to back. It is a brilliant book, and just what I wanted. It presumes that you have some knowledge of photography, as this is a pro camera, and goes into detail of all the settings in the camera, with in depth explanations of all the choices/options. It also gives recommended settings that the author uses with explanations as to why he uses them. Totally thorough, and exceptionally well written with good screen shots and diagrams. It breaks down the complex into simple terms, and I can’t recommend it highly enough. Thank you.

The ONLY Nikon D850 book to own.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 25 January 2021
What a brilliant book. If you have upgraded to the D850 you will need this. Much has been said in the previous reviews and there is little I can add to enhance that. It is a joy to read and follow, easy instructions with plenty of photographic illustrations. but I will comment on a couple of negative points that were mentioned in previous reviews. Small print? It looks like an 11 or 12 Arial font which is about right considering it's 668 pages long. One reviewer was disappointed that it didn't have any information about photographing sport. The book is about how to use one of the best cameras in the world, not about shooting specific genre. Look elsewhere for how to photograph sport or any other genre. It will tell you the best settings to use in various situations but it won't tell you how to set your camera up. That's where this book comes back into play.
ComprehensiveReviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 February 2020
A very weighty tome. Not for holiday reading! Everything that you ever wanted to know about the D850. Lots of colour pictures, screen shots and other supporting photos. I liked the authors conclusion at the end of each chapter. A good summary and helped separate the key elements from the nice to have
No reference to sportReviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 March 2019
Over 600 pages and not one reference to sports photography! It’s full of useful tips and information but can’t be considered comprehensive if it doesn’t include sport. Not the book I need or wanted.
