Nikon Z7 / Z6 Experience goes beyond the manual to help you learn the features, settings, and controls of these full-frame mirrorless cameras. Plus most importantly it explains how, when and why to use the basic and advanced features, settings, and controls in your photography.

This clear, concise, and comprehensive guide will help you learn to use your Z7 or Z6 quickly and competently, to consistently make the types of images you desire. Take control of your camera and the photos you create!

This e-book is designed for intermediate and enthusiast dSLR photographers who wish to take fuller advantage of the capabilities of their camera and shoot competently in A, S, and M shooting modes; take full control of the sophisticated autofocus system; and learn how, when, and why to use the various controls, buttons, and features of the Z7 and Z6.

For experienced photographers, this guide explains the new and advanced features in order to quickly have you taking advantage of these capabilities, including the AF System and its Focus Modes, AF-Area Modes, and Custom Settings. Attention is given to the new features including the customizable controls, Focus Shift Shooting, in-camera image stabilization, new menu items and options, 4K UHD, Time-Lapse, and Slow-mo video, plus using F-mount lenses with the FTZ Adapter.

What Readers are Saying about the author's previous Nikon guides:

This is the most helpful manual I've ever used. No serious Nikon user should be without this. I find myself referring back to this book quite often - very easy to find what I need and even easier to understand.

All I Need - I have been using Nikon dSLR cameras for many years. In all this time I have never come across a publication which complements the rather soulless and complex user manual so well. Your excellent work is all I need to exploit the potential of this amazing dSLR.
-Martin D.

A well written, professional helpful guide - Exciting, clear to follow, has examples and is by a professional who gives just the right amount of technical info with explanations of why and when to use those settings, all properly explained. The book is well thought through and well written.
