Nikonians author Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell) reports his newest book, Mastering the Nikon D7100
is now available for pre-order at Amazon.com. The USA site is currently showing the book with a 34% savings ($26.37 instead of $39.95). The UK site is also showing it available at £30.99.

Darrell has been working with this camera with the meticulous attention to detail required in preparing an extensive handbook and he took a break from his research to share his first impressions:

"The Nikon D7100 camera takes all the mature features of the Nikon D7000 and combines them with the best features of the Nikon D600. It then imitates the Nikon D800E by removing the low-pass (AA or blur filter), leading to the sharpest DX camera in existence, and even adds the professional 51-point AF system for powerful autofocus.

The camera is a dream for an advanced enthusiast who has DX lenses and maybe a few FX lenses. The D7100 is fast, has a unique 2x crop mode, a 100% viewfinder, 24 MP, and 1080p video that can either be recorded to the memory cards or by streaming to an external recorder, such as the Atomos Ninja-2, through the HDMI port.

The D7100 is the current flagship DX camera and my ultimate goal in writing Mastering the Nikon D7100 is to cover every detail of the camera in easy to understand language and with copious graphics"


We have heard from a reputable source that the projected availability of this new book will be much sooner than the current November projection. In fact it should probably be closer to September availability.

As always, this new edition of NikoniansPress Books will carry a 50% discount voucher code for a one year Gold Membership.

I appreciate all who are preordering. This helps my publishing company know how many books to print for the initial print run. If you do preorder, you will receive the lowest price even though it may have been higher when you preordered. Amazon.com does not charge your card until the book actually ships. Thanks!

Hi guys...i just got this book 3 days ago...worth to read and i'm beginning to feel better with my D7000. Thanks Digi Darrell for a very clear explanation.

However, upon reading more pages i suddenly found a few pages that suffered from bad printing quality. What i mean is the printing were overlapping with black and grey text and became blur. It's hard to read. I counted so far there are about 12 pages that suffered this problem.

How can this got pass QC check.

Silantra,

Are you talking about Mastering the Nikon D7000? This thread is about Mastering the Nikon D7100, which has not yet been released (as of July 6, 2013).

If you have the D7000 book and it has damage from printing, I would first contact the vendor that sold it to you and ask for a new copy. I will report this problem to my publisher. Let me know if you have any problems getting a replacement. Thanks!

Tempted to order but haven't got one yet. Been doing the research though, and am pretty sure I'll be investing in one of these. I have a D90, almost 5 years old. Think it's time to more up

Because I live in Australia it's told me expected delivery is November Hoping it gets to me sooner than that though. Mind you I don't have the camera yet but my birthday is next month and I've told the family just to give me money as I'm saving up for the camera, so hopefully not that far away now.

Just a note to say that I am enjoying Darrel's book immensely. It is far more informative and pleasant to read than the manual that came with the camera. He writes in a technical and free-flowing, easy-to-read style, which is unique for such technical material and subject matter.

Darrell goes deep in depth on each of the functions and settings on the powerhouse D7100, which make this book a "go-to" resource for the life of your camera ownership.

I have the hard copy, but because the images in the book are mostly about the functions and settings, you could get this book on Kindle and not lose anything of tremendous import; meaning it is not a composition book, so you can do without the photography pictures.

Although I'm slightly more than a novice now, I'm also considering Young's "Beyond Point and Shoot..." book as it delves into the basics as well as slightly more advanced precepts of photography. Although it appears to have some truly "newbie" topics, it seems like it may also provide a refreshing look at ISO, aperture, shutter speed, bokeh, etc...

I highly recommend Young's work!

Ken,

Thanks for purchasing an autographed copy of my book on eBay. I got your order and I'll get it shipped to you tomorrow. I hope you enjoy your new camera and that my book helps you get maximum benefit from it.

The D7100 is a complex little jewel, however, it has a lot of power and flexibility. I think you're going to make some of the best images you've ever shot with your new camera.

When the book arrives, sit down with your camera and your new NikoniansPress book. Take the time to consider each function. You will come away with much greater knowledge of what the camera can do for you.

Look for the Nikonians Gold Membership 50% discount coupon in the book too. Thanks again!

Got the book still a great price. It's a great discussion of what but better about the Why. Why isn't something covered well at all in the Nikon manual.

I am not certain that this is the correct place to ask my question as I am a new member. I purchased Darrell Young's book - Mastering the Nikon D7100 - which I am enjoying VERY Much! My question is: WHERE and HOW do I download the referenced material/documents specified on page 7 of his book? I went to both supplied urls but I can't locate his referenced item "Camera Control Reference". Can anyone tell me where this additional material is located? THANKS!

Patricia,

Thanks for buying one of our NikoniansPress books. I'm glad you are enjoying it!

The website is listed in the book. The one on Nikonians.org is NOT working, so try the one on RockyNook.com. However, the one on RockyNook.com is working, I tested it. Be sure you type it in exactly as listed in the book (no www). Let me know what happens. Thanks!

THANKS a bunch for your speedy reply! I must have been typing it incorrectly because it worked when I tried it again. Great articles and I will certainly study them tonight.

I purchased this book and read it cover to cover. Excellent source of information and great baselines to set up your D7100.

I have had a fair amount of film experience but only PHD (Push Here Dummy) experience in digi. This book got me on track.

I would highly recommend it.

I totally agree with you that this is an all-encompassing learning experience for quickly getting acquainted with the Nikon D7100 camera. This is my second Nikon DSLR camera and I have just started reading the book but I have already learned a great deal about my new camera (which still has not arrived). But I wanted to get a head start on learning it so, thus, this book. The author is an accomplished tech writer which I appreciate. I also am glad that I found this rockynook site.

I'm not certain if this is the proper forum to post this questions but I could find no suitable avenue. QS: Would anyone know where I could get a copy of all the camera symbols(icons)used in the D7100 camera? I am about to go blind trying to see the tiny icons! A definition of their use would also be beneficial. THANKS

Thank you, thank you, thank you,

I had a simpler DSLR and wanted more control so I purchased my 7100 14 months ago. I got it and I have been struggling with the owners manual, various nikonians' forums advice as well as DPR and taking classes. This book, "instruction manual" has helped me immensely. I now understand much more about the capabilities of my camera and the various setting.

Page after page, well screen after screen (Amazon download), easy to read and understand information along with detailed pictures. I have learned more in reading this book than the hours of class time. Not to mention the frustration of photographs that did not turnout the way I wanted them to.

Every D7100 owner should own a copy, Frank

Thank you....however, I guess I was looking for something with a little more "punch" (with more explanation) than what the Index provides. Also, much much LARGER icons - the index symbols are TINY and I cannot see them without a large magnifying glass. If there is not a web site for what I am looking for I guess I can greatly magnify the Index. But I am still hopeful that someone has already done this leg work and made it available to us poor-sighted people!

Being in the market for an update from my D200 I settled on the D7100 and decided to get a jump on things bu ordering the book from Amazon last night. When the camera gets here I'll at least know a lot more about it than I do now.

Just received the book yesterday and I have scanned a few pages. I can't wait to dig into it but on first blush my decision to a) get the D7100 and b) to obtain the book look solid.

Thanks to Digital Darrell for a great reference guide!!!!!

Darrell,
I am on my third reading of your very informative book. It is far more helpful than the manual included with the camera.
I would appreciate more explanation of the focusing modes, especially differences between 51 point and 3D auto focus.
Perhaps this belongs in a different forum but other than this minor complaint I enjoyed your book thoroughly. Even after several readings I continue to learn new things from it.
Thanks!

All I can say is WOW!! I received my copy today and was totally amazed at the in depth detail that this 530 page book holds...and that's not counting the index!

I've just scratched the surface looking though it and think I'll be more ready to set the camera up when it gets here after reading this masterpiece. Thanks Darrell for a superb description of this camera and the functions.

I noticed on the back of the book there's a Gold Membership offer but I saw no coupon number. My Silver memberships is up for renewal in a few days and thought this would be a great time to upgrade to Gold but I'm not sure how the coupon works.

First I would like to thank Darrell, this book is so helpful, especially for this newbie. I have gone through most of it twice already and will have to go through again - sooooo much to learn!

I happened to see this post and would like to recommend the Kindle/digital version of the book for use on an iPad for those of us with poor eyesight, as you can enlarge the font AND the photos in the book by tapping on them with your iPad.

I just recently purchased a D7100 and SB700. My daughter has the D7000 and SB600 and has been helping me with various questions that I have had. However, I fully intend to purchase this book as it will certainly be helpful in the use of my camera and certainly a little easier to read than the dry manual. lol

Attn: Kindle users

Are you happy with the kindle edition?

I have a kindle (B& W) and was wondering if the print book is in color (my guess) and if Kindle (black and white) is OK with that...

After a few years with a D500 and "Mastering the Nikon D5000" I have ordered a D7100 and "Mastering the D7100". I am looking to learning as much with the D7100 and book as I did with the D5000.

Next I need to start expanding my stable of lenses.

Downloaded my e-copy last night. Both the Manual & the Mastering books are now on this ipad for comprehensive reading, then understanding, followed by applying and ending with frequent refresher.
