    The Index and Excerpt links are bad (404 responses). I’m curious, how is this book different and/or better than the 244 page manual Nikon provides for the camera? Give me your sales pitch.

    1. Alex White Post author

      Thanks for pointing out the bad links. They are fixed now. The difference between this book and the Nikon manual is that this book is written with the intention of explaining to a user how the controls, menu options, and features work, and how to use them, rather than just providing reference material that would be useful to an engineer but is not really geared to a user who wants a fuller explanation. Also, the book has more than 300 illustrations, so it shows the user what to look for and what to expect from the camera. If you are already quite experienced with this type of camera, you may be fine just using the Nikon manual. The book is more geared for beginners and intermediate users.

    I have your guide to the P900. Are the controls of the P1000 enough different that I would benefit from getting the P1000 guide for my P1000 camera?

    If I order the ebook from white knight press I get the book in multiple formats to allow use on a computer and kindle which I liked.
    but how can I load the kindle version onto a kindle?

    1. Alex White Post author

      There are several ways to do this. One way is to download the .mobi file to a computer, then connect the Kindle to the computer with a USB cable, and copy the .mobi file to the documents folder on the Kindle. Another way is to use the Send to Kindle app, which can be downloaded from the Internet and used to send the .mobi file to the Kindle. Another way is to use the email address assigned to your Kindle, and send the .mobi file to the Kindle by email. Information on this last technique can be found at See also

      I would suggest that you remove the battery, wait a minute or two, then put it back in the camera. Make sure the battery is well charged, then try again. If you get the camera to power on, use the Reset All option on the Setup menu.

    Hi Alex. A couple of years ago, when I bought the Nikon P900, I also invested in your excellent guide and found it invaluable. Now, having upgraded to the P1000, I was relieved to discover that you have created the same invaluable guide to this more complex camera and immediately invested in a copy. Of course a lot of the features are relatively intuitive but there is so much more that a good guide to reveal and I would much prefer to learn from an expert than spend hours trying to teach myself when I could be out actually taking pictures.

    Sometimes I have trouble getting the nikon p1000 to focus…..autofocus or manual focus – on subjects even from 6-10 meters away. This is so frustrating. what did i do wrong??

    Does your book cover “how to focus – manual and auto” in-depth and thoroughly?


    1. Alex White Post author

      It’s hard to say what the problem might be, because there are several possibilities. If you have the lens zoomed in to a long telephoto setting, the minimum focus distance is quite high — up to 7 meters. Also, you might need to use a different setting for the AF Area Mode, which tells the camera where to direct its focus. It also can be hard to get a non-blurry image when using a lens with such a long focal length. It is a good idea to use a tripod and the self-timer. I believe my book covers focus issues thoroughly, but you would have to be the judge of whether it covers the topic sufficiently for your needs.

    Just wanted to say as a recent – 1 week – owner of the P1000 camera, how invaluable I have found the Kindle version of your guide – Thank you for writing this with both the novice and maybe more experienced photographer in mind. I found the writing style helped get across the techniques without being overly technically complex. I have already started to improve my photographs as a result of your guide.

    1. Alex White Post author

      Hi, Cliff — Thanks for your comments! I’m glad you have found the book useful, and it’s great that you are using this terrific camera to good advantage!

    I have a P1000 Nikon
    Didn’t use it much yet so still alot to learn
    Right now getting msg that says
    And so cannot go any further with it
    Any suggestions!
    Changed card few times but still same msg showing???

    1. Alex White Post author

      It does sound as if there is a problem with the memory card. You could try re-formatting the card. If that doesn’t work, you might want to try the Reset All option on the Setup menu, if you don’t mind starting over with your various settings. That is all I can think of at the moment. You could post a question in the Nikon Coolpix Talk forum at; someone there might have some more ideas. I hope you can get it solved!

    Thank you very much
    I will probably resent as I have not used it much at all yet…. appreciate your help!
