    Blue Crane Digital BC115 reviews

    DVD: Introduction to the Nikon D300 Digital SLR is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value The video is a good source to jump start your ability to use this sophisticated camera. It is not simply a video version of the User's Manual; it explains both how the camera works (features, buttons, settings, etc.) and strategies for taking good pictures. You'll need to view it several times, and to review sub-sections as your skill-level with the D300 increases. Considering what this camera costs, this is a very small additional sum of money to get you going and give you some interesting ideas on advancing your photographic techniques using the myriad features/settings available on the camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from VERY HELPFUL Great DVD to introduce you to the camera. While experienced photographers will find most of the material very basic, its a nice walkthrough of where to find all of the functions and use your camera out of the box. DVD starts a bit slow and provides some useless analogies...should just jump right in.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended tool for your camera It helps you focus on all the functions of your camera and is good for reminders every once in a little while. It veers of track and goes off too much into metaphors, I think, but overall, a must have for ams to pros alike.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Cool DVD This DVD is perfect for someone trying to gain knowledge of the Nikon D-300. It's basic and to the point. It takes you from zero based information to full blown D-300 knowledge in the length of the DVD. The presenters are easy to understand and present well. The DVD takes you from the position that you are new to the camera. The information will quickly allow you to familiarize yourself with the camera and start shooting with your D-300 in no time. Very easy to follow and best if you have your camera in hand at the time of viewing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from DVD instruction fro Nikon D300 by Blue After many years I have just converted to Digital with the purchase of a used Nikon D300. I know how to take pictures but the nuances of the Digital camera were a bit daunting. This DVD took me step by step through the camera and though I still have quite a bit to master, has really made the transition enjoyable and quick. Great item which I would suggest to others making the transition.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very helpful Though much of this was review for me, it is well presented in common language and comes at a pace that makes it acceptable to an amateur like me. The parts that I need more work on, I can easily see myself going back to after attempting some techniques in the field. It is not necessarily a watch once and then discard DVD.
