Jason Odell’s newest PDF eBook, The Photographer’s Guide to the Nikon 1 V1/J1 is now available for download from Luminescence of Nature Press. I recently read the book while on a photo trip and must say that Jason has done a great job of covering all aspects of the Nikon 1 camera system. Jason’s writing style is easy to understand and explains things in simple english. One of the things I applaud him for is peppering the book with his specific camera settings for getting the most out of the camera. He goes beyond just telling you what to do by taking it a step further and telling you why.
The eBook reads very well on the iPad, and is also readable on any device that has a PDF viewer such as your computer or other tablet devices. All titles and chapters are hot-linked so navigation through the book is a breeze.
The Photographer’s Guide to the Nikon 1 V1/J1 has thorough chapters on camera operation, still photography, video, imaging workflow, Motion Snapshots, and flash photography. Jason also included an additional chapter on accessories for the Nikon 1 series cameras that goes through details on lenses, flashes, GPS, microphones, F-mount adapter, grips remote shutter releases and more. This chapter is very helpful for those of you wanting to get the most out of your Nikon 1.
As with any new technology, there are always going to be problems, and Jason helps users solve problems with the V1 and J1 with a full chapter dedicated to just troubleshooting. He has detailed information on troubleshooting issues with lenses, batteries, hot pixels, exposure, focus, memory cards, etc.
If you are a Nikon 1 owner, then I recommend Jason’s book. It is definitely what you need to get yourself over the learning curve so you’ll be able to capture amazing images. Nikon’s new breed of mirrorless cameras are sophisticated and capable systems and Jason’s book is just what the doctor ordered. Even though I used the Nikon 1 V1 for over a month while testing it in Africa, I learned even more by reading this eBook.
By the way, I get a lot of questions from readers about the Nikon 1 series cameras. I highly recommend the V1 model over the J1 because of it’s additional features. Here are links to the cameras and accessories at B&H Photo.
