Very Good Introductory Course
- February 08, 2011
- By: John
I highly recommend this course for those moving up from point and shoot cameras, or those who have already moved up, but have little experience with anything more than the different scene modes.
I took this course on Feb. 5th at the Markham location. The class was 5 in total with Francis Livingston as our instructor. The Markham classroom was perfect - small class size, intimate, well-equipped, and good lighting - no complaints. Francis did an excellent job of introducing us to the features of the a33 & a55, and even though myself and another participant had the older a200, Francis knew what capabilities it had and didn't have compared to the newer models.
I believe that Francis succeeded in the goal he stated at the beginning of the class - get us to take control of our cameras - primarily by going beyond scene modes. By the end of the course, I was confident in not only knowing how to adjust ISO, exposure compensation, focus mode, and white balance, but more importantly - I knew why, and under what circumstances, I should.
I am hoping that Part 2 will be as good, or even better, than Part 1. At the time of this review, I don;t see any dates posted for Part 2 at any locations - but when they are, I will definitely be attending. Thank you for an excellent course, and thank you Francis for teaching it so well...
