If you’re the lucky own of a Nikon D800 or Canon EOS 5D Mark III, and you’d like to know more about how to use either camera, then you’ll want to check out my two latest courses. Both classes walk you through all the critical features and operations of each camera, and are designed to work in concert with my Foundations of Photography series. Note that the 5D Mark III class is also ideally suited for users of the 5D Mark II. Click here if you’re a 5D user or click here if you’re a D800 user.

  2. I love all your Lynda videos! Thank you so much for the wonderful information you provide us “newbies” and in such an easy to understand format!
    Anyway, I have just gotten the t4i/650d and was wondering if you will be doing a video specifically for it? I’m watching the t3i video now but wasn’t sure if I should do it or the 60d. I’ve heard it compared to both. Just found your book on here too, going to amazon to buy it tonight! Thanks again!

  4. Have been watching the 5d3 videos and they are very well done. Its a “little” more basic but I am still getting alot out of it. Couldnt have been better timing to release these videos since I just got my 5d3 less than 2 weeks ago.

  6. Hello Ben: I just purchased your “Canon 5D Mark III” DVD from “Lynda . com”. It will arrive soon. I don’t see any titles about using the “Mark III’s” (external) flash settings. Ironically, I came across your “Mark III” DVD while looking on YouTube for “camera flash” lessons for the “Mark III”. On YouTube, I did not get much help. I purchased a “Nissin Di622 Mark II Digital Flash”. If possible, can you please send (to me) a link to “camera flash settings” video lessons (hopefully for the “Mark III” or similar) ? Thank-you . . . P.S. Previously, I purchased two of your photography courses (Exposure – 2010, Lenses – 2011). They and you are excellent.

  8. Hello Ben: (Michael Rooney again) After a few more hours of searching, I found a combination of YouTube videos that familiarizes me with “Mark III’s (external) flash settings” and how these settings will effect the flash/picture. I would like to post their links but I’m concerned this may be considered “in competition” with your DVD (in case I am wrong and your DVD does cover “Mark III’s (external) flash settings”). I look forward to studying your DVD (when it arrives). Thank-you

  10. Hi Ben! Your videos are amazing and you are wonderfully smart and handsome! I have a new D800 and have found your videos to be excellent, concise, and fun. Thank you for your work! Are you planning any seminars in the near future?
