To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
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.
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.
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.
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
I have had this book for a short time and it is excellent. I have purchased one of these for all the D range of Nikon dslr camera's I have had and always found them to be a fantastic reference document.
If you've bought a Nikon D850 you can probably skip half the book because you know what you're doing already ... right ? But starting half way through the book there is some useful information to be found and it is well written. Recommend ... or browse YouTube for the same information.
Changed all my canon gear (7D +3 pro lens's) for nikon (D850 +2 pro lens's), this book is a must have if you want to know all about your camera, its not a photography book, its a how to set your camera up book.
