Man! For the price, this e-book rocks! It's not just a rewriting of the Nikon handbook. It has a downloadable Excell spreadsheet, featuring suggested custom set-ups for Birding, Sports, Portrait, and Street. And accompanying detailed info on why the setups are decided to be the way they are. There are website and product links! Every subject seems to have 2 chapters. One to learn in the beginning, and one deeper chapter. It's a total package! Almost seems like too much info to digest. Thus it will be your reference, for as long as you own your D500!
I was lucky enough to stumble upon this book. When I bought my D500, it was a significant upgrade, and the book, with its conversational style and intuitive organization, has been a fantastic help, not only in helping me use this camera to its utmost potential but also in becoming a better photographer. I can't speak from experience, but I would imagine that Mr. Klostermann puts the same amount of effort into all of his guides, making each one of them an inexpensive and indispensable companion to the corresponding model.
I have his guides for the d3300 and d750, have read all 3 cover to cover. The guides are complete, cover everything the camera does, are easy to read, easy to find what you're looking for, and easy to understand. In short, the best you can get.
