          The content is great, but you cannot navigate the disc. I spoke to the Maven support about 9 times to find out how to navigate certain menu's.

          Poor doumentation is all I can say.

          I would not recommend the disc

                Comments about Michael the Maven Canon 600EX-RT Speedlite Crash Course (DVD):

                I've had 4 600EX-RTs for several months and am pretty familiar with them, but still learned several tricks from this course. He pretty much covers everything, from the basics to every single custom functions. He even talks about hooking up Pocket Wizards. You might ask, why would I ever need to hook up Pocket Wizards when the 600EX-RT has it's own radio transmitter? Well, it's a niche case and not one I'll likely encounter, but was curious about and enjoyed learning about it. This is a good course for anyone from beginner to prosumer. Lots of good examples throughout. The only thing that could have been covered a little bit deeper is use of the filters that come with the 600EX-RT. He shows them, but doesn't demonstrate good examples on their use like he does every other feature.

                              Another great DVD from Michael the Maven to quickly get you up to speed on all the features of this flash unit. Michael is very good at taking the complex and making it easy to understand and apply with confidence. He applies basic and advanced flash photography techniques with the capabilities of the flash to bring you up to professional standards. Canon should pack this DVD with every 600EX-RT they sell!

                                  Comments about Michael the Maven Canon 600EX-RT Speedlite Crash Course (DVD):

                                  Got this with my 600EX-RT and vastly easier to get the full sense of the 600 from this video than the manual. Have read a couple books on light and flash but this was the clearer than the books in letting you build your run-time game plan of how to use the Speedlite (with something like my 5D Mark III). Wonderfully conceptually on how to think about lighting and then translate that to 600. Also a very detailed and clear section on getting through the various buttons and screens. Finally nice section on specific flash styles with great video examples at every stage.

                                  Think for the folks who are likely to buy this (amateurs) this video offers a great investment (mostly in the almost 4 hours it took to watch since if you have bought this flash there is a good chance your time is worth more than the cost of the video.)
