'Tuther day, while at my local book store, I discovered the new DP2 & DP1 Manual in Photo Mook format. A mook is a combination magazine/book, a particularly Japanese thing. They tend to be mini-books focused on one topic/product printed in higher-quality magazine format, with nice heavier-than-usual stock for the pages and good printing of images. They can be quite lovely. The content tends to be a combination of nice examples, fatherly technical advice, nice display of accessories (from various sources) and gentle comparison with other products in the same market. This one is published by Nippon Camera.
Anyway, what really caught my attention about this one was one of the photo example/essay sections. Seems someone has taken the time to visit Wetzlar and Solms with a DP2 and take some landscapes and street shots! I had to chuckle....
