Thom Hogan's
Complete Guide to the Nikon F6

The definitive F6 instruction guide.


This eBook helps you master the use of the Nikon F6 35mm SLR, with a full description of the camera features and lots of useful tips and background information. This is the work that should have been the manual!

  • Nikon metering and all the new autofocus modes explained in plain English! Wonder how the color CCD-based metering pattern works? Can't figure out Dynamic autofocus, Group autofocus, Release Priority, Focus Priority, Closest Focus Priority, and a host of other terms used to describe features of the focusing system? Thom Hogan's Complete Guide to the Nikon F6 explains these terms and accompanying techniques in the same simple, no-nonsense language that made his Nikon Field Guide a best seller.

    Bonus: did you know that the spot metering interacts with the focus settings? Some settings allow you to move the spot metering, some keep it locked in the central area.
  • F6 Accessories, software, options, and even revisions are described. Thom Hogan's Complete Guide to the Nikon F6 manages to not only fully describe every feature of the F6 in clear, easy-to-understand language, but gives you information about all the F6 accessories, such as the MB-40. Want to know how to do interval shooting, multiple exposure, or data imprinting and storage but are confused by Nikon's descriptions? No worries, it's all laid out in 1-2-3 steps.

    Bonus: did you know that the F6 can be modified by Nikon to use pre-AI lenses?
  • i-TTL flash information demystified. You'll get a full description of how i-TTL flash works and how it differs from the older film TTL flash system used by the F4 and F5.

    Bonus: did you know that the F6 still uses the older TTL flash system in some circumstances?
  • Includes useful 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 F6.

    Bonus: 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 eBook!).
