Mastering the Nikon D7100 – New from Rocky Nook

Santa Barbara, CA— September 17, 2013 – Mastering the Nikon D7100 by Darrell
Young provides a wealth of experience-based information and insights for owners of the
new D7100 camera. Darrell is determined to help the user navigate past the confusion
that often comes with complex and powerful professional camera equipment.

This book explores the features and capabilities of the camera in a way that far surpasses
the user’s manual. It guides readers through the camera features with step-by-step
setting adjustments; color illustrations; and detailed how, when, and why explanations for
each option. Every button, dial, switch, and menu configuration setting is explored in a
user-friendly manner, with suggestions for setup according to various shooting styles.
Darrell’s friendly and informative writing style allows readers to easily follow directions
while feeling as if a friend dropped in to share his knowledge. The learning experience for
new D7100 users goes beyond just the camera itself and covers basic photography

  1. I have used your books since the D90. Now I am on the D7100 & there is one issue I think is not as clear as it perhaps should be. Bracketing and assigning a button to burst bracketing. I think you should clarify that when bracketing is set nothing over rides it so assigning a button to burst bracketing is, well, kind of pointless. I mean to get bracketing to work with your assigned button you need to set bracketing. So lets say you assign the Pv button to burst bracketing when you then take a single shot it will be the 1st of the bracketing set, the next shot the 2nd & so on.
    There is little point in assigning a button to burst bracketing unless there was a way to take normal single shots, then use the assigned button to bracket.

    • Thomas, bracketing is a very specific function and the bracketed series of images have to be completed in full before proceeding to normal pictures, unless you kill the bracket in the middle of it by turning bracketing off. Assigning a button to burst bracketing and then using it during bracketing simply saves time over firing frames one at a time. Bracketing pretty much overrides everything in the camera. Be sure to turn it off when done!
