Going through the menus seem like just reading what is written. This course seems valid for non-camera owners. Almost like a run through of what is there. Definitely not a primer for owners. Too expensive for what it is.
Halit Fatih Kizilgok
I personally think that this course is very bad for different reasons. It does not go into depth in any section and is quite useless to really know the camera. All the little accumulation of information displayed here is free of charge in any YouTube video tutorial. Do not waste your money as it has happened to me! Honestly I think it's a shame to sell this course as a paid product.
