About the Author - Pg. iv

Introduction Throw away your cheat-sheets and command cards! Are you tired of squinting at tiny color-coded tables on fold-out camera cards? Do you wish you had the most essential information extracted from my comprehensive David Busch's Nikon V1 Guide to Digital Movie Making and Still Photography and David Busch's Nikon J1 Guide to Digital Movie Making and Still Photography in a size you could tuck away in your camera bag? I've condensed the basic reference material you need in this handy, lay-flat book, David Busch's Compact Field Guide for the Nikon V1/J1. In it, you'll find the explanations of why to use each setting and option--information that is missing from the cheat-sheets and the book packaged with your camera. You won't find the generic information that pads out the other compact guides. I think you'll want to have both this refer- ence and my full-sized guide--one to help you set up and use your Nikon V1 or J1, and the other to savor as you master the full range of things these great cameras can do. About the Author With more than a million books in print, David D. Busch is the world's #1 selling digital camera guide author, and the originator of popular digital pho- tography series like David Busch's Pro Secrets, David Busch's Quick Snap Guides, and David Busch's Guides to Digital SLR Photography. As a roving photojour- nalist for more than 20 years, he illustrated his books, magazine articles, and newspaper reports with award-winning images. Busch operated his own com- mercial studio, suffocated in formal dress while shooting weddings-for-hire, and shot sports for a daily newspaper and upstate New York college. His pho- tos and articles have appeared in Popular Photography & Imaging, Rangefinder, The Professional Photographer, and hundreds of other publications. He's also reviewed dozens of digital cameras for CNet and Computer Shopper, and his advice has been featured on NPR's All Tech Considered. Visit his website at
