Unlike the manual, it actually teaches you what each and every button and menu item does and how to use it. David Lumsden. Zuiko ED mm 1: Sony a review in progress. Most will let their products reset to MSRP for a bit, analyze what that does to sales, and then resume discounting for the various spring holidays Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Graduation, etc.
You "own" it just like a book and can give it away if you want, but just like a book, you only own one copy to give away and can't keep a copy if you do. As much as I'd prefer electronic delivery for speed reasons, I do respect his right to distribute his work as he sees fit I can say that now that I have a copy. It's a huge volume of work, and the only legal way to get it is through Thom himself, via snail-mail.
I'm still critical of the lack of electronic delivery could have had my copy a month or more ago , but I think it's worth the hassle. Hope I'm not coming off as a Hogan shill here. I don't know Thom and I'm definitely not on his payroll doubt he has any employees.
I've worked in tech fields all my adult life, and the complaints about manufacturers manuals are legend. Good tech writers are golden when you can find them and Thom seems to know Nikon hardware better than anyone outside of Nikon's engineering department.
And it is good. I've worked with cute blond tech writers with advanced English degrees before. It all falls flat without a passion for the work like anything in life. Gimme a grizzled old geezer who knows his stuff any day. I'll be happy to review Thom's D book here and will be impartial, but it's a long read, and may take awhile. Can't wait to dive in -- Robert L.
A colleague just got one also and picked up the book by John Batdorff, which I borrowed and am reading, and I find to be very helpful, as noted about the Thom Hogan book. Ken Rockwell's review site also has some useful information, and he states he usually uses the D he has several camera options. Having worked as a Tech Writer, I agree with the previous statement about "cute young blondes with journalism degrees vs old geezers" like me!
We tech writers would write the technical information correctly and the young editors would make incorrect changes without the technical knowledge, resulting in inaccurate information being published very frustrating! In fact, I had to push hard against them figuratively, of course! They are either "Maintainer's" and "Operator's" or "Maintenance" and "Operations", to which the Department Manager finally acceeded and the change was made Worth the money if one wants a good learning reference.
What kind of things do his books cover that you don't get in the owners manual?
I've not bought one and would consider it for my D but only if not a regurgitation of the manual Most of the "items" in Thom's books are also "covered" in the Nikon manuals. The main difference is that the Nikon manuals read like they were written by design engineers, and Thom's guides read like they were written by a photographer.
In Thom's guides features are discussed in a sequence that makes sense to a photographer, you I never can figure out were something will be found in a Nikon book.
Hope that helps.
I bought it and would do so again, although if I had it to do over again, I'd forego the full printed manual in favor of the Quick Guide and DVD. The purchase would be cheaper, and would arrive more quickly he self-publishes and this takes a while. I use it and love it. Roman Johnston uses it and loves it.
I bought it, read it, loved it. I've read it from cover to cover. Unlike the manual, it actually teaches you what each and every button and menu item does and how to use it. A little lite on video and Live View. Only one mistake in terms of function but he corrected it when I asked.
Has helped me improve and I reference it often. I bought a copy from Thom and received it in about three days. He is great at that. However, there is NO DRM so there really is no reason for him not to offer a download after receiving payment.
Once you receive the disk you are on the honor system not to give away copies. So there must be some other reason he is not doing it. Business costs? I don't mind getting the CD and he ships fast.
Is it almost an indispensable accessory due to its convenience? Or, once we read a good portion of the main book, there's no reason to need the Field Guide? It's tough to tell via the Amazon buying page! Nikon dslr d90 — shared files. Nikon D90 Guide Nikon D How big is the byThom staff?

Steven Blewett Posted 8 years ago. Edited by Steven Blewett member 8 years ago. What does this button do? How bout this one and this one pressed at the same time? That's about as far as I have gotten, not that anyone cares. I don't mean to be negative no pun intended.
If you go out and take a few days maximizing the cameras capabilities it comes quite quickly. The D is just a body. I am more interested in something that will make me a better photographer I'm curious as to how Thom Hogan's tome is different than other D books on the market. SoCalBob 8 years ago. No, Jacky, none of Thom Hogan's guides will make you a better photographer creatively or aesthetically.
Sorry about that. His guide just pertains to the D Thom dissects just about every aspect of the inner workings of the camera as they relate to practical applications in photography and presents them in understandable, non-technical language.
I can appreciate the fact that a working professional photographer like Steven Blewett , who posted above, might not see any practical value in a guide like Thom's. For many of the rest of us, though -- amateurs at all levels of expertise who find the manual a bit frustrating and lacking in specificity -- Thom's guides are exhaustively thorough, extremely useful reference books that I highly recommend.
MeKbUdA40 8 years ago. This book has definately made me a better photographer. You can also get these in PDF form as well. You said the magic word, Linda -- "tome.
