Publisher: O'Reilly Media, Inc.

About this book
Mastering the Nikon D5000 is a comprehensive guide for the owners of this newest, budget-friendly generation of Nikon digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras. The smaller, more lightweight Nikon D5000 mixes generous portions of user-controlled manual photography features with the latest technological innovations, allowing fully automatic point and shoot simplicity. Darrell's approach in helping the reader to master this camera avoids the purely instructional technique, favoring a more friendly and advisory tone. He blends his decades of Nikon camera experience with an intuitive understanding of the readers' most likely questions regarding specific camera functions and features. Rather than just list all options for the myriad of camera settings and adjustments, he explains the background behind each setting and shares his personal recommendations. Darrell understands that many owners of the D5000 may be just entering the world of DSLRs, and he takes the time to guide these new owners through the basics, while giving more experienced photographers the option of a refresher course. Also included is an entire chapter on the exciting new D-Movie function that can record high-quality HD movie clips at an amazing 24-frames per second. Mastering the D5000 is the most recent volume in the highly successful series of Nikonians Press books.

    Lots of misinformation in other reviews of this flash

    I can't believe the amount of misinformation presented in customer reviews for this product.First of all, it is true -- Nikon added a thermal cut-off that allows the customer to be absolutely certain that the flash never overheats. If that sensor is turned on, the flash can't shoot fast enough or often enough for professional usage -- particularly for weddings. Try shooting the bridal party introductions at a reception, for example. Even if you limit yourself to two flash pops per couple, by the time the third couple is walking in the door, the thermal shutdown will kick in, and you'll be swearing at the thing.However, you can simply turn the sensor off. In my experience, the flash is no more delicate than previous Nikon and Canon speedlights. Every Nikon and Canon flash has a duty cycle carefully described in their manual that virtually all professionals ignore and exceed, and yet -- most of us get years of usage from the flashes with no problem. I can't tell... 5/5 Paul Grupp "Upstate Photographer" (Troy, NY) - See all my reviews, May 4, 2009

    Thermal shutdown - fixed?

    I have an SB900 and agree with all the positive comments posted in other reviews, however I want to challenge those who are posting stories about thermal shutdown to supply some additional information about what situations really cause the flash to shutdown.I've been using my SB900 for several months now, and I've never experienced a problem with the unit shutting down, so I thought I'd try a simple test.I installed a set of brand new lithium ion batteries in my SB900, set it to full power manual mode, and hit the flash button manually as soon as the ready light lit - that's about one full-power shot every 1 or 2 seconds. I did this until the batteries were drained (that is, until it got to be about 10 seconds between flashes - that's a few hundred full-power flashes in a row).Never once did the thermal protection circuit kick in...in fact, the temperature display barely moved for the first 50-100 shots, and throughout the test, even when I could... 5/5 Busy Executive (Long Island, NY) - See all my reviews, December 26, 2008

    Finally seem to have fixed the SB-900 overheating issue

    I was a bit surprised when I saw Nikon had introduced the SB-910 relatively quickly given the old SB-800 was around for longer when the SB-900 introduced so my suspicion is they got very tired of dealing with the overheating issues that the SB-900 had. Granted for many people those issues were not THAT big of a deal since believe me, having to wait 10 minutes for a flash to cool down during an automatic "time out" is far better than frying your flash; however, for pros who are about to take that picture of a ring being put on a finger, or the first kiss, etc. this is a very big deal and the SB-910 addresses that.Physically, you can't tell the two apart unless you look closely. The color correction gels on the 910 are also hard and better built. Internally, the 910 takes much longer to overheat and when it does, it slows down the flash rate (not sure about power) instead of just shutting down.

    Great Improvement Over the 900

    0 5/5 W. Kurtz "B. Kilgore" (New York, NY) - See all my reviews This review is from: Nikon 4809 SB-910 Speedlight Supplied with; AS-21 Speedlight Stand; SW-13H Nikon Diffusion Dome; SZ-2FL Fluorescent Filter; SZ-2TN Incandescent Filter; SS-910 Soft Case (Electronics) I used the older SB900 model before this one and was constantly frustrated with the incessant overheating when I was doing event photography. Happily the SB910 corrects this fault to large degree and performs much better in this regard. The unit is easy to use as a basic flash on camera. Just pop it on and you are ready to go. However that is not really using all the potential of the product. There are numerous powerful features built in for off camera flash and modifying the light output for a much more natural look than direct flash. Many Nikon DSLRs can control this unit using their small built-in flash. It's all in the detailed instructions. As far as my experience, the flash has performed perfectly. It cycles quickly provides a great deal of light and helps make amazing pictures. It is also much easier to use than its predecessor. I am very happy with the this flash, so much so that I own two of them. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 2, 2012

    Softbox well worth the money

It gives an even diffusion of light. Gels can be purchased and cut to size and clipped to the top of this softbox with EXCELLENT results. The gels fit in the storage pouch nicely.It is easy to put on once you learn the secret. Here's the secret trick....put it on before attaching your external flash to your camera. The reason it's better to put on before is the Velcro strap is very snug and if your external flash swivels, it's just hard to hold the camera, flash and put it on all at the same time.I use an off shoe flash cord and it works very well in this respect. I think this 6x8 size is just perfect for macro stock and general macro work as well as outdoors fill lighting.You'll like it. I like it and I'm not that easy to please. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 21, 2011

    For on-location photographers, vastly underrrated.

    Finding the perfect on-location flash modifier can be such a headache. As a wedding photographer, I struggle with this all the time. In a perfect world, I would have a trio of large softboxes on powerful 600w/s strobes available at all time, at a whim, with instantaneous setup.Alas, I have ultimately settled on speedlites for most of my wedding work. Larger softboxes for speedlites are a pain due to the fragility and complication of setup. Umbrellas work reasonably well, though they require an adapter for the stand, and can cause the light stand to blow over fairly easily with only a minor gust of wind.What benefit does this softbox have for me?- 10 second setup. Slide it over the head of your flash and strap it down. Accommodates various size flashes too.- Almost instant break down time.- Folds down flat. Will fit in many camera bags with no problem.- Has no fragile parts to crush or break. No need to worry about throwing it in... 5/5 J. Howell (Atlanta, GA) - See all my reviews, October 14, 2011

    Best Diffusion Dome out there.

    0 5/5 Shane Stiles - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Nikon SW-13H Diffuser Dome for SB910 and SB900 (Replacement) (Accessory) I was shooting a wedding when I dropped one of my Nikon SB-900's which of course is built like a tank and showed no signs of damage and kept on shooting. However what did suffer was the little tang on the side of the diffuser so I ordered this replacement and am keeping the broken one as backup. This is a must have item for any strobist out there. I have used the Omni Bounce and several other light diffusers but for quick set up to shooting I love using this Nikon diffuser. I find it to be much better thought out than the 3rd party brands for example it has a diffusion grid molded into the plastic to further assist in getting the diffused light nice and wide. Also when mounted on the flash it actuates a tiny micro switch that tells the flash to go extra wide to aid even light dispersion even more. My recommendation if you are a strobist kind of shooter is to always have a spare or so around or at least some gaffers tape :) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 13, 2010
