I’m pleased to announce version 3.0.0 of the D7000 workbook. This is a very radical update and a huge improvement over version 2.4.2.
It now has a far more professional look, makes extensive use of colour, uses cell protection, has 7 columns for “genre” styles, details Picture Control details not in the manual, has a very revised/easier to follow Help, and hyperlinks within the document.
It also has a new “How to setup your DSLR” process. This details, step by step, what you need to do to fully configure the D7000 as a professional photographer would for any of the 5 genres (i.e. Landscape, Nature & Travel, Portraits & Weddings, Sports & Action and Point & Shoot). The instructions cover; configuring every switch/dial, loading the BIN file, saving to U1/U2, and configuring settings that cannot be loaded by a BIN file. Also configuring some one-off settings that will apply across the board. Essentially, every single aspect of configuration of the DSLR is covered – to ensure every last setting is correct per genre.
The workbook also contains Picture Control details that are not in the manual, or indeed anywhere on the Net!
A new FAQ sections answer questions such as; “I’ve just bought the BIN files – what do I do with them?”, “I’ve updated the workbook with my own settings. How do I save them to card?”, and “How do I use the settings files and setup my DSLR?”
This is a radical update and the new workbook looks nothing like the original. It has significantly more detail, but is easier to use at the same time. It also ensures that novice, intermediate and even professional photographers can configure the DSLR and be sure that all settings are correct (provided all instructions are followed of course).
The price is the same for new purchasers – £5. For those that have already purchased the D7000 settings, they can acquire this upgrade for just £2 by emailing me or taking up one of the offers in the email newsletter.
