    I received my D5600 as a Christmas gift, and while I picked up a few things on my own, this class was wonderful. I learned more than I would have picked up just by reading a book about the camera. Thank you, John!

    I thought this class was excellent in that John Greengo showed me the essentials of my new Nikon D5600. I learned all about the menus, the settings and the relationship between shutter, aperture and ISO. Highly recommended.

    I find these interesting and very informative just for the featiures. I would like to see one on the slightly older Sony a77. Note, too, Mr Greengo that this manufacturer is, as I have been many times corrected, Neekaan and not Nighkawn.
