I do remember having to reference my owner's manual for more details on a few occassions. Maybe do a search here for both authors' names and see if posts/reviews make you lean more towards one author than the other if you want to try one of them.

    Thanks. I just ordered the book by Young. I'll let you know how it is...

    Re: Post your latest purchases.

    Well, my Z5 purchased earlier this year came with two instruction manuals, one english, one spanish. Release date was in 2020. Not sure when it was actually manufactured.

    Cindy set you in the right direction, I think. These guides are normally easier to understand and more practical than what Nikon gives you.

    Probably a little overkill, but I doubt that I'll be having issues traveling with my camera anymore. I've far outgrown the small camera case I got with my first DSLR 15 years ago that I still use today and the backpack I have that claims to be a "camera backpack" can finally be retired, (yay!). The 45L is big enough for the medium and small cubes fitted inside and the sling strapped to the outside if needed, or just the small or medium cube inside with all my other non camera related goods depending on the travel needs. If the sling feels too much like a purse it might get sent back, but I gotta try it out first. I have the PD Slide strap already, (I freakin love that strap!) so the PD Slide Lite may also be overkill, but hopeful I can find a use for it on another body or the Bigma 150-600. We'll see.

    FWIW, I initially tried ordering from Adorama. I have a VIP membership there and wanted to use the points I've accumulated. My order summary didnt look right though so I called in. Come to find out, not all the stuff was in stock regardless of the fact that all the items were listed as in stock on the website. Further, they were going to charge for shipping AND my points weren't getting applied. The CS rep says he's sorry but to call him direct for any future orders. This isn't the first time I've felt deceived by Adorama. Decided to scrap the order entirely with Adorama and got it through B&H instead.

    To use up my points at Adorama, I went back after B&H to order a SmallRig L bracket for my Z6 and Zeiss Weipss to have on hand while out-n-about.

    Spoke to the same CS rep. Used up my points to bring the price down to almost free and got free shipping, (3 day is the best they could offer, it doesn't go out same day though so it should be here sometime mid next week). B&H should be here tomorrow, (ordered yesterday, offered free 2 day shipping and it went out yesterday too!). Our vacation starts at the end of next week, so everything should be here in time. Fingers crossed!

    I consider the Darrell Young guide to mastering the Z 6II/Z 7II to be an extremely valuable addition to Nikon's .pdf manuals and guides to the Z 7II and well worth the purchase price.

    Thanks very much for the recommendation!

    Is it true or I miss read that using a smallrig L bracket with camera over a tripod would make the camera sit at nodal point, so perfect to shoot pano? Appreciate to clear my head.

    I have that Smallrig L-bracket on my Z5. It has markings to help align the centering to the lens, but I don't believe that to be nodal point. The film plane is marked on the camera body and is too far forward to be at nodal without some front-rear adjustment. I understand the lens used also changes nodal point. Not that I ever shot a pano that way anyhow.

    EDIT: what I have is not a Smallrig, but branded Leftfoto. It is a close copy of the Smallrig bracket though.

    I have large hands and was interested in the Smallrig L-brackets after reading about them.

    From what I can tell, they have been discontinued; they're no longer on their website. I read somewhere that the reason they were discontinued was that they were unstable in portrait position but I searched for a while and found no reviews mentioning that issue or posts on forums complaining of it.

    I have the Smallrig #2258 L-bracket on the way from an eBay seller as my latest purchase. There are still some available there.

    Thanks! It's no miracle worker, its intended for small setups. The smaller the lenses and body you have, the more you'll be able to fit but it all depends on how you have the dividers set up. I think its best to set the dividers up to create 3 even compartments and if done correctly, can collapse on themselves towards the outside to allow one big space if needed. So far I've used it to fit the smallrig'd z6 with the 14-30 attached and the 24-200 (or the 50 f1.8s or the 24-70 f4) next to it with a little space for a strap or a blower or something else small underneath one of the collapsed dividers- not sure if a 28 or 40 would fit under there, I dont have one to try but for reference the FTZ does fit, but un necessary with either of these lenses. So I could do the 14-30 attached to the camera, the FTZ under the flap and 70-300 on the side but then when done with the 70-300, there'd have to be a disassembly process before stowage. There is not a lot of space in there, but the design allows the zipper to close when you got it crammed full of stuff. It pays to be mindful of what lens is attached and what lens is stored next to the camera in the sling. They should both fit on the camera in the space allowed for the camera or else you're swapping lenses back before storing the camera (Capture Clip?)The sling is taller than the cubes and so the longer lenses like a 70-300 or the 105 macro that should lay down in the cubes, (and waste all the space above the lens in their little compartments) they have enough space to stand up in the sling but then there isnt enough room for a lens'd camera to fit too, so its a tradeoff. The 10l may be a better fit if you want a 3 lens kit with you or if the lenses you use are of the larger variety, but its a bigger bag and I was after a smaller one so the 6l does great with 2 lenses.
