Introduction to the Canon EOS 40D - Take great pictures with your Canon 40D. All you need is this training DVD and about two hours, and you'll have the knowledge and the confidence to create the images you want.

The topics are arranged in chapters, so you can move at your own pace, and return later to individual subjects. Cut weeks or months off your learning curve. This DVD not only gets you up and running with confidence, it explains what the engineers had in mind when they designed the outside dials and controls. You'll come back to this video again and again.

Your Canon 40D is a powerful piece of equipment. A solid understanding of its features and controls can really unleash its potential. Once you learn how the camera's components work together, you'll have all the tools you need to capture the best image under all conditions.

Blue Crane Digital BC114 reviews

DVD: Introduction to the Canon EOS 40D is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Know your tool!! You will be able to minimally operate the camera without this DVD. Just open, power up, and press the shutter button (like a point and shoot camera). However, the 40D camera can do a lot more but only if you know how to use it. Nature of my photography (high school sports) pushed me to learn more and now I am very glad to have had that challenge. The video was difficult to get at first but now I can go back and select the chapters I need and each time I learn more. Advanced controls give you more control of your photos. My photos were very GREATLY improved. To get better pictures, you have to know your tool!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice DVD even if you have many Canon's I have owned the 10D, 20D, Mark 11N and now the 40D. I have used Canon cameras for apx. 15 years. So why bother with a learning DVD??? Because you can never know it all and there is always somthing you can learn. Plus there are new features that are better illustrated with the DVD than with a book or manual. It's well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers Everything I went through this DVD once, the second time was with camera in hand to pause and do what was just explained. This is an excellent DVD in which to learn how to operate your 40D.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Instructions for the Canon 40D I bought the book hoping that it would explain how to use the other features other than automatic. It left me in the dust because it rushed through the movements so fast and used terms that I did not understand. A slower pace I believe is needed for the amateur which I thought this book was written. If I watch the DVD over and over again I'll probably be able to eventually understand what the book is trying to tell me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd purchase this product again I'm new to photography, but my wife isn't - she's an experienced photographer. I purchased this to help catch up - to avoid asking her too many questions. The dvd is just great. It not only teaches you about the 40D, but also about composition. It takes you out of the automatic zone and puts you into the creative zone. I don't have her years of experience, but this has certainly knocked some time off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blue Crane DVD This training video is very well organized and it helps to demistify the use of the 40D camera. I have purchased another dvd from another manufacturer and I feel that the Blue Crane DVD is a more practical presentation of the material. I have no regrets in purchasing this training video. I have told my friends and co-workers about it and they too agree that it helps in lowering the learning curve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NICE OVERVIEW.. well produced Hits the mark for cursory review of features of the 40D and there are a TON of them!... and reveals enough that unless you memorize the manual unlikely you will get something out of this DVD. While oriented for beginners.. it offers something for most users.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended! If you are getting your first SLR, you will greatly benefit from this DVD. I watched before I started using the camera, and then after a month of use and it helped me a lot! It only took me a few weeks to know how to use every mode and option on the camera.
