Thom Hogan's
Complete Guide to the Nikon N75


This eBook is the definitive N75 instruction guide.

This eBook helps you master the use of the Nikon N75 35mm SLR, with a full description of the camera features and lots of useful tips and background information. This is the work that should have been the manual!

This eBook is $24.95 plus shipping and can only be purchased from this site.

For more information about the book and purchaser comments, keep reading...to order it, see the top of the right-hand column.

   
  • The new Nikon N75 matrix meter and autofocus modes explained in plain English! The N75 is a departure from previous Nikon bodies in both the metering and focusing abilities. Learn exactly how they different and what all the new (and confusing to existing Nikon users) autofocus terms mean. Thom Hogan's Complete Guide to the Nikon N75 explains these things in the same simple, no-nonsense language that made his Nikon Field Guide a best seller.
  • A complete instruction manual. Thom Hogan's Complete Guide to the Nikon N75 manages to not only fully describe every feature of the N75 in clear, easy-to-understand language, but gives you advice on how to set each feature. But this eBook goes further than Nikon's manual: it shows you how to set fill flash levels despite the fact that the camera doesn't have a flash exposure compensation control. A complete Table of Contents is in the lower portion of the right column for those that are interested in what's covered.
  • Includes useful Excel workbooks! On the disc are several of Thom's Excel workbooks, one of which allows you to calculate depth of field and hyperfocal distance for any Nikon lens used with the N75. But that's not all! You'll also get Excel workbooks for macro and flash (know how to calculate the GN of multiple flashes or the effective GN when bouncing? You will if buy this book!).

Mom approved! The Nikon N75 is the camera my mother now owns and uses. And she helped improve this eBook by reading and proofing an early draft, offering many suggestions that helped make my explanations more clear for novice users.

Worried about the fact that this is an eBook? Don't be. You'll find it a lot easier to find things in this eBook than you would in a printed manual (active TOC, bookmarks, and cross-references insure that). Plus many of the purchasers of my eBooks print a copy and have it bound for their personal use (I allow you to make a copy for your personal use). Most copy shops can perform the binding for you.

Covers all models: US imports N75 or N75QD, and international models F75 or F75D. It's all covered. Plus I describe the remote control and MB-18 power accessories, too.
