Today I received from the printing company the proof copy of the paperback version of Photographer’s Guide to the Nikon Coolpix P500. The copy looked excellent, and, after checking through the pages of the book, I went online and approved the book for production. Now it will take a few days, or possibly a week, for this title to start showing up for sale on Amazon.com and the sites of other booksellers. The price will be $24.95. I also ordered a few copies of the book to be sent to me, and I will probably make those available as a third-party seller through Amazon Marketplace under my seller ID of alexstrawhite. I should receive those copies within five or six days.
Of course, the book is still available for immediate download in its PDF version, which is identical to the paper version in content, and has the advantage of an interactive Table of Contents and Index. For more details about how to order that version, which sells for $9.95, please see the information page for the Coolpix P500 book.
Here is a photo of the proof copy of the book, taken by the Nikon Coolpix P500 in Program mode at 1/160 second at f/3.7 and at ISO 160:
