    Always enjoy all of John's classes, but especially this one since I've decided to upgrade from my previous 6D. Awesome camera and this one is so much quieter than the older one. Thank you for explaining things in terms and ways that are easy to understand!

    This course covers the controls and menu features of the EOS 6D Mark II in extremely comprehensive yet understandable detail. John Greengo is a polished presenter with a very real depth of knowledge which he manages to put over in ways that mere amateurs can comprehend. I would thoroughly recommend this class to anyone who already owns or is about to purchase a 6D Mark II. I purchased the class during the first 15 minute break after only watching one quarter of the full presentation.
