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!

    Nice!
    Looking forward to hearing about the 6L sling and what lenses, etc. will fit in it with your Z 6.

    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.
