Thom Hogan's Complete Guide to the Nikon D500 helps you understand and master the use of the Nikon D500 DSLR. With almost 1000 (!) pages of detailed, complete, and useful information, you'll find all your questions about the camera and how to use it answered. 

Available for download at US$39.99


This book (supplied as an eBook PDF file) contains everything you'd want to know about the Nikon D500 and how to use it. You'll find deep explanations with more examples and suggestions than in previous and other guides, all in the no-nonsense and understandable writing style for which Thom Hogan has become famous. No matter how well you think you know the D500, you'll find things in this book that you didn't know about it. That includes information on some of the glitches that have impacted the first shipments of this camera, setting up SnapBridge for Android, use of the WR-R10/WR-T10 remote, information on what Small and Medium NEF files really are, and much, much more. That’s why it's called a "complete guide."

What else is covered? The new sensor, the new autofocus system (including some new recommendations), metering, video including HDMI recording of video and 4K video, XQD and SD card selection and use, lenses, the new Automatic AF Fine Tune facility, image quality, use of your mobile device with the camera...basically everything there is to know about the D500. Did you know that you can set IPTC data in the camera directly, or from files you create on your computer? Do you know how to distinguish between a D500 settings file and a D7200 settings file? This book will cover those things and a lot more. 

The PDF file is fully cross-referenced and bookmarked. byThom supports use of the PDF file on Windows computers, Macintosh computers, Apple iPads, plus Nook and Kindle readers. (There's no reason it won't work on smartphones or other tablets, but we don't have the resources to check and support every instance of every PDF reader in existence. Note also that on the smallest Kindles, page margins and Amazon's PDF support can make the type smaller than some people like; try orienting the page horizontally, where Amazon gets the margins right.) 

The Complete Guide to the Nikon D500 is a must-own for any D500 user. There simply isn't any other work out there that comes close to touching the detail, usefulness, or completeness of this work. The work can only be purchased from this site. 

  • Organized to help you learn. With distinct sections for what you need to know before using the camera (background and setup), while using the camera (shooting features), and after using the camera (what to do with your images). Video is covered in a separate section, too. 
  • A complete instruction manual and an introduction to relevant digital issues in one book. Thom Hogan's Complete Guide to the Nikon D500 manages to not only fully describe every feature of the D500 in clear, easy-to-understand language, but gives you rich, technical background for many of the critical issues that confront digital camera users. 
  • Nikon flash and autofocus modes explained in plain English! Wonder how the new radio i-TTL flash works? Can't figure out the new autofocus system and how Dynamic autofocus, Release Priority, Focus Priority, 3D autofocus mode and changed, plus a host of other things that Nikon changed in the new focusing system? Thom Hogan's Complete Guide to the Nikon D500 explains these terms and accompanying techniques in the same simple, no-nonsense language that made his Nikon Field Guide a best seller. Includes instructions for the SB-500, SB-700, SB-900/SB-910, and SB-5000 including for wireless use (both optically and wirelessly).
  • Wireless coverage: The eBook covers the built-in wireless transmitter and the use of the Nikon SnapBridge app.

eReader and iPad users: the PDF files have been tested only on the B&N Nook Color, the Kindle 3 and Kindle Fire, and the iPad (Mini, Air, and Pro) using the Adobe Acrobat Reader application. Other devices are not directly supported by byThom (though they usually are able to use the files).
