      Comments about Blue Crane Digital DVD: Introduction to the Canon EOS Digital Rebel T2i (aka 550D), Basic Controls:

      This DVD is a must-have even if you've been using your camera for quite some time. It not only covers every operation of the T2i, but offers an incredible wealth of information about good photography. I would compare this to a good Introduction to Photography course at any community college or continuing ed. program. There is so much useful and practical information that the DVD requires repeated viewings - just select the chapter you wish to review. I learn something more each time I watch it. All Pros, no Cons - I would recommend this to all amateur photographers.

              You just pop it in your DVD player grab your remote and camera and get ready to be educated in a way that you never thought was possible through the means of a DVD. This product is awesome I watch it twice a week since buying it to keep myself refreshed! I would refer this to all my friends interested in even purchasing this camera so that it eases the anxiety and gives them confidence!

                      This is my first upgrade from film to SLR digital camera. There are so many buttons and controls that I felt a little overwhelmed. This video is basic enough to get anyone started but intermediate enough so that if you are familiar with depth of field, ISO, shutter speed you will understand very quickly all the features of this camera.

                        This is everything I was hoping for for an intro film. I have read and seen quite a few things before for introductory purposes to my camera, none have been so clear, concise and thorough. It is actually enjoyable to watch again. Kudos to the creators because it got me up to speed in a matter of a few days.

                              I'm glad I got this. It's definitely helpful, as a complete newbie, to have someone explaining the camera. It is a little frustrating, when my camera doesn't do what it seems it should after following their instructions (as I've understood them), that I can't ask questions. So, of course, a real live class is superior to a DVD. But still, it helped get me up on my feet and feel less intimidated than trying to decipher the manual alone. Worth the [$], definitely.

                                Great private lesson! with easy to understand examples of feature being discussed. Suggested stops in lesson allow you to apply on your own camera. If confused, easy to replay and try again untill your comforatable with adjustment. Demo's are well done and easy to follow, much moreso than manual. I can envision replaying this several times over the years to pick up additional pointers. I'm now going to purchase the Blue Crane DVD for the 580 flash.

                                  it doesn't take the place of reading the manual, but I thought it was definitley worth the money. I'm a visual person and it was easier for me to watch a DVD than read the manual right out of the box, especially since this is my first DSLR. I know I'll refer back to it more than once.

                                    The DVD gave a complete and comprehensive review of my camera. I would highly recomend this to anyone who owns this camera; new owner or old.

                                      Unless you are already very familiar with Canon DLSR cameras, you'll want to watch this video several times to help get the most out of your camera.
