Mike,

The Kindle version comes out about two weeks after the print version. I received my author's copy this morning and the book is really nice. It's about an inch thick and put together well. It should start shipping to those that pre-ordered within a few days.

I expect we'll see the eBook formats appear by mid-September (or earlier).

I am extremely happy and excited to announce that Mastering the Nikon D800 was released today on Amazon.com (http://amzn.to/SyRBjm).

I absolutely love my Nikon D800, having shot multiple weddings and events with it. I can never go back to less than medium format again. It takes lots of hard drive space and a fast computer to deal with the file sizes; however, it's worth it for the amazing resolution!

Pre-orders are going out now! You should receive a notice from Amazon.com that the book is now shipping and giving you a time frame to receive your copy. I hope everyone enjoys the book!

I think those who have images in the book will receive their free copies in the next few days. I will double-check with the publisher about this.

If any early readers wouldn't mind writing a good review of the book on Amazon.com, I would appreciate it. Early 5-star reviews make a book successful. Thank you for your help!

Dan,

Sit down in a comfortable chair, have your camera and the user's manual next to you, and start reading. Read with the camera in your hand and make adjustments as you read. If you will go through the camera this way, I promise you will find all sorts of things you didn't even know this powerful camera could do.

I challenge you to find a way to call up a histogram for the currently viewed image when you press the Multi selector center button. (Hint: it's in the Custom Settings menu.)

I hope you enjoy the book and will write a nice Amazon.com review when you have time. Thanks!

I just tell it as see it Darrell. I think you and your team did a terrific job on the book. I've done a little of it myself and know what takes to get a good users manual completed.
Fine...fine...job.

Hi Darrell
I ordered a copy from Amazon.ca as soon as pre-order was available.

For those in Canada, I just checked and it says...
"Available for Pre-order. This item will be released on August 29 2012."
I don't buy too many books but yours was a 'have to get'.

Jean,

Thank YOU for trusting me enough to buy my book. I hope you'll learn a lot more about your camera by reading it. Please review it on Amazon.com if you like it. That really helps me!

Is it worth waiting another 2 months????

I am checking with the publisher about the Canada delay. I do know that Amazon.com is often quite conservative with shipping dates. It is hard for me to imagine that Canada will not have stock sooner than the end of September, when the USA already has full stock.

I'll let you know what I find out as soon as the publisher replies. Thanks for your patience!

Bob,

The eBook versions come out about two weeks after the printed version. It will be available in Kindle on Amazon.com and in APK, Mobi, ePub, and PDF at www.oreilly.com. They offer a bundled deal where you can get the printed book and all ebook formats all in one bundle, with a great price.

I'll make an announcement here when the ebooks become available.

Got my book last week from Amazon. I pre-ordered a long time back. I haven't gotten into it too much as I've been busy. Congrats.

My publishing company, Rocky Nook, contacted me today to let me know that all the books for chapter opening image submitters are now going out. To those with USA addresses you will receive your free book from their USA distributor.

To those with non-USA addresses, Rocky Nook mailed your books directly to you by USPS Priority Mail.

Let me know, please, when you have received your copy. Thanks!

Sounds great. I keep running to my mailbox when I get home from work to see if it arrived like a little kid.

The first "camera" book I have ever bought. AND I am glad I did. When I first got the D800 I spent about 4 days going over every setting and getting familiar with all the menu's. The owners manual was confusing in spots. Darrell' in depth discussion's were "right on" (I started reading it at the hospital , bedside to my wife who had a four day stay for her 3 stents after triple bypass)
Now that she is home she has heard me say, more than once....wow I did not know that ! And I thought I knew the camera very well. GREAT JOB Darrell !!!! ( my dog was not happy when I was learning the flash, never knew it had a flash preview.) I really liked your recommended settings and actually changed a couple to match as they made sense.

One thing that would be nice....Is it possible to have a quick reference card (sheet) for the menu's. Where one could pull it out and say, I want to look up menu a4 - AF activation and have your page number for that setting. Then (IMO) the book could be a "handy" reference guide. I know I could do this but perhaps it has already been done, or Darrell has notes which would make it quicker.
ALL in ALL GREAT job Darrell. You really helped me get a better understanding of autofocus and area modes. And yes I want picture after picture of seagulls in flight, had to laugh when I read that....I live in Florida. LOL
