Good introduction to the Canon 5D Mark III camera. I went from a Digital Rebel to the Mark III which was a significant jump in technology. Many of the features I was completely new to, and the video explained some of them to an adequate detail. You are not going to watch this and walk away with a great depth of knowledge of this camera. This is after all, "Basic Controls." It is a good starting point.

Nice way to getting using your New 5DIII. Helped in getting out there and shooting right away. Not an advanced video but helps get you going. Wish it it was a little more in depth but still worth the money if you want to short cut to learning features and quick access to them.

This DVD gives good examples of how to use the camera. However, I found the video to be a bit boring. I had to break it up into smaller sections to keep my attention span on the lessons. It does have some good examples provided you pay attention to what is being shown. There is an advanced DVD, but you'll have to purchase that one separately. All in all, I did get some useful information from it. As the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. This video's examples helped me to understand the written descriptions in the camera's manual.

I've recently gotten my 5D Mark iii. This video was a great "jump start" for learning the functional basics for the camera.
They do cover a lot of ground in the presentation, so I found myself playing several parts repeatedly - while fiddling with the settings on the 5D Mark iii. I've now moved on to their "Advanced Topics" video (cross-referenced with printed manuals) to better understand the complexities of the plethora of camera menus.
I would highly recommend it for anyone new to this "beast" of a camera.

I was looking forward to this coming out after I bought my 5D3 and got the Basic Topics DVD. Glad they finally released this. Got a lot from it. Always pleased with Blue Crane videos for my Canon camera and flash knowledge.
