Wildlife Photography e-book: available again on Saturday Dec 17th

By dpreview staff on Dec 17, 2011 at 20:40 GMT

Wildlife photographer and dpreview.com contributor Uwe Skrzypczak is again making his book 'Wildlife photography: On Safari with Your DSLR: Equipment, Techniques, Workflow' available as a free download. As a goodwill gesture, following the difficulty many people experienced in downloading the book last week, Skrzypczak and his publisher Rockynook will be making the English language version of the book available again from Saturday December 17th for a 24 hour period, this time on dpreview's servers. The German-language version is also available from Skrzypczak's website. Please note - this download is only authorized from these links and for a 24 hour period - sharing or downloading the book from other sources contravenes Skrzypczak's copyright and is likely to deter other publishers offering downloads in future.

Availability - December 17th 2011

The download link will not work outside the following times:

A very important book that concentrates on advantages of low contrast capture, where jpeg is less flexible (being intended for immediate viewing) than RAW (intended for further custom tweaking of contrast for more detail retention in the shadows and highlights simultaneously). And other techniques that help in this area, like HDR. At least, relevant to dcams/dSLRs which still are not DR flexible yet. Most DRO features are still not as flexible in-camera as any of us like, so for the time being PP is needed to get what we want for optimal choices on image outcome.
