DVD: Understanding the Canon Speedlite 580 EX II/430 EX II is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS DVD IS V/HELPFUL WITH SPEEDLITE USE I HAVE THE 580EX/430EX DVD THAT ALSO COVERS 580EX II. IT MAY APPEAR AS IF IT WAS FOR THE STUDIO USER IT IS VERY HELPFUL TO THE IN FIELD LANDSCAPE/NATURE PHOTOGRAPHER AS WELL. I HAVE WATCHED THIS DVD OVER 5 TIMES AND HAVE ALWAYS LEARNER SOMETHING NEW I MISSED THE FIRST TIMES. I OWN BOTH THE 430EX AND 580EX II. IF YOU CON'T LEARN FROM THIS DVD YOU ARE NOT LISTENING AND WATCHING WHILE TRYING/USEING YOUR SPEEDLITE.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rename: Apply SPEEDLITE to Studio Shot This DVD is not good. The major step by step example they have in this DVD are inside of the studio WITH a lot of special equipment that regular household WON'T have. They do NOT teach you how to use the flash in regular daily using bases. The concept they teach is SIMPLE! They do NOT teach you real technic on the 2nd curtin shot, or some other special shots. They only teach you how to use PROFESSIONAL SETTING on stupid simple shot. If you are wondering how to use your SPEEDLITE in your house, on your cat, dog, children, or anything that won't hold still and move constainly, this DVD teach you NOTHING! You can not apply anything this DVD teach you unless you own those equipments like extra stand, special tripod for reflacting board... If you do not have the equipment I mentioned, this DVD can not help you. You also need to have a flash light extented core... if you do not have it, forget about this DVD... I think this DVD is NOT GOOD! The real educational DVD should teach you how to use ONE SINGLE 580EXII or 430EXII and your DSLR WITHOUT any other aditional accessories to shot picture well in live situation. NOT studio shot, NOT with all type of expensive professional accessories that people usually do not own. I think they should have change the title to Apply SPEEDLITE to Studio Shot, this title is more likely explain what this DVD really is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very helpful learning aid This DVD is very helpful when learning how to use the Canon Speedlite. I have the 430 EX II and use it with my EOS 7D. There is a great difference between this flash and the built in flash in the camera, knowing how to use all the functions correctly will insure maximum effectiveness of the flash unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, I can use my Speedlites I have struggled with the Speedlite users manuals. A friend loaned me his Blue Crane Understanding the Canon Speedlite 580...DVD. I watched it several times and applied it to my shooting and finally I am able to use and understand my Speedlite system.. I have bought the DVD for myself and bought one for my photography enthusiast daughter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Buy I really had little understanding of how to use my 430 EX II Flash after watching the DVD I walked away with a greater understanding of how to work my Flash. It has added much to my portrait's. It is well worth the time and money that I invested. I would encourage all that it is well worth the time and money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Speedlite 580/ DVD review DVD is not what I expected. The DVD is kinda of a low budget production and I felt like I learned more from youtube videos. This is a very boring DVD.
