Jeff Cable produced this video for B&H Photo.

He even admits himself to shooting with both the Canon 5D mark III and the Canon 1DX and NOT reading the entire manual. That’s the reason he produced this class which has more views than almost any other training produced by B&H.

This class will cover the most important buttons, menus and dials of your DSLR from the shooting modes, to exposure compensation and flash control. Learn to take control of your DSLR camera and start shooting in creative ways.



Can’t watch it with my WiFi, but sounds interesting Larry Kling, Chris Sims, Gary Welch. Although, why would I need to watch it when the only dial on the Nikon is the Perfection dial, level 1, 2, or 3….

Take no notice of them David Chilton my Sony has 3 settings to.
1-3 with 1 being the best and has the letter S for Sony beside it. 2 has a C which is 2nd rate and stands for Cannon and last the crap one is N for Nikon

Ah but consider the distance factor. Most 105mm (or equivalent) have a minimum focal distance of around 18-24″ even on macro so unless the photo itself is staged then the macro setting would not be employed. So I still say its a telephoto – for arguments sake. However you may be correct given the DoF in the photo.I’m just being a smart ass is all.

Minimum Focus Distance on a Canon 100mm Macro’s is 12″. Even the Sigmas and other knock offs are about the same. Where are you getting 18-24″ from? Do you macro? And I use my Macro’s that close all the time.

And technically, telephoto is anything longer than standard. So an 85mm would be a telephoto.

The girl in the pic taking an up close shot of some mushrooms, still looks like she is using a good size 50mm lens. My 50mm 1.2L looks like the same size.

She might be able to afford the right glass for the job. I’d love to own a macro lens, but have learned, through reading, that a zoom lens is a really good substitute. My floral photos have validated that opinion.

Why are there ads like this, when you go to look at it, it gives a wee bit of text, and expects you to click to go to another page? Why can’t it be on the first page…yet they make it difficult to find out how to go on? I gave up, and only got to read the bit on the main page…as I won’t go beyond the myriad of damn ads!
