Mastering the Nikon D610 – New from Rocky Nook

Santa Barbara, CA— January 16, 2014 – Mastering the Nikon D610 by Darrell Young provides a wealth of experience-based information and insights for owners of the new D610 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 D610 users goes beyond just the camera itself and covers basic photography technique.

  1. I just took the jump, from film to DSLR a few months ago, and I’m not a young pup anymore.

    Thanks to Darrel’s book “Mastering the D610”, has made my transition more possible. I LOVE this thing, well not quite yet – sometimes I get bad exposure/focus, but re-learning all the time (AF-S is not AF-C, in doubt AF-A!), and white balance = manually set the thing most the time or Auto2 as I like warm.

    Almost got a D800/D800E, however I spent money on GLASS : 1st an AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ‘beast’ (it STAYS on my D610), and just got the AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G, the bigger beast. Where the heck is my aperture ring = sub command dial! 6 Spotmatics, 2 Canons, 4 other 35mm film cam’s and lenses in my closet are not happy right now… been shooting since 12 years old or so. Never heard of it, but now I shoot RAW only. Thanks again for a great reference/book, I’ve re-read it 3 times now…

    Thank you so much for sharing your information. Now to get that Atomos Ninja-2 recorder, yep – love shooting video also – your info/book got me hooked on video out of this puppy, bad. 😉

    Keep you lens clean, and keep on shooting.
