Thom Hogan's
Complete Guide to the Nikon D2h & D2hs
2nd Edition

This eBook is the definitive D2h and D2hs instruction guide.

At 730 pages, this eBook covers virtually everything there is to know about the D2h and D2hs, with a full description of all the camera features, the WT-1 and WT-2 wireless accessories, and lots of useful tips and background information. This work goes well beyond the manual in almost every way, plus it's better organized and easier to understand, two very important things to consider when tackling a tool as complex as the D2h and D2hs.

This eBook is $29.95 plus shipping and can only be purchased from this site.

  • Nikon flash and autofocus modes explained in plain English! Wonder how the new I-TTL flash works or how it is different than the D-TTL you'll get if you use an older Nikon flash on the D2h? Can't figure out Dynamic autofocus, Release Priority, Focus Priority, Closest Focus Priority, Group autofocus, Focus Lock-on, and a host of other terms Nikon uses to describe features of the focusing system? Thom Hogan's Complete Guide to the Nikon D2h & D2hs explains these terms and accompanying techniques in the same simple, no-nonsense language that made his Nikon Field Guide a best seller. The appropriate D2h instructions for the SB-28DX, SB-29, SB-50DX, SB-80DX, SB-600, and SB-800 are all here in this eBook, complete with correct GN tables for the D2h series!
  • A complete instruction manual and an introduction to relevant digital issues in one book. Thom Hogan's Complete Guide to the Nikon D2h and D2hs manages to not only fully describe every feature of the D2h and D2hs in clear, easy-to-understand language, but gives you rich, technical background for many of the critical issues that confront digital camera users. Thom even takes a NEF image quickly through Capture to show you how some of the tools can be used to improve the look of your pictures.
  • Find out how to configure the WT-1 and WT-2. Full WT-1/WT-2 instructions for both Mac and PC users are here in, and in Thom's usual manner, he'll lead you step-by-step through the lengthy setup process and describe what it is you're doing and why.
  • Four banks of Custom Setting recommendations! Thom goes beyond his usual recommendations and shows you exactly how his D2h and D2hs is set up.
  • Includes useful Photoshop Actions and Depth of Field spreadsheet. On the disc is Thom's Excel spreadsheet, which allows you to calculate depth of field and hyperfocal distance for any Nikon lens used with the D2h series (note that depth of field on a digital body like the D2h is not the same as it is for 35mm film). But that's not all! You'll also get Excel workbooks for macro and flash (know how to calculate the GN of multiple flashes or the effective GN when bouncing? You will if buy this book!).
  • Includes Firmware 2.02 information for the D2h, and the new features of the D2hs. The eBook describes the original D2h firmware, the updated D2h firmware, the original D2hs firmware, and the updated D2hs firmware.

What others say about this eBook:

"Excellent with a capital E. I gleaned more useful information in just a
couple of chapters than the totality of Moose Peterson's new Magic
Lantern book about the D2h.
" --David Scott

"Fantastic book...and a joy to read." --John Holmes

"The content is very helpful and your expert insight is very welcome in addition to the rather limited official Nikon manual for the camera. I now understand a great deal more about the camera and feel a new level of confidence when using it in the field as a result." --Sean Hare
