I went ahead and purchased my 20d a few days ago. Knowing that the camera is capable of amazing photos if I know the corrct settings I needed some sort of guide on how to get started w/ an SLR. I am sure glad I bought this DVD. The material is well presented and the chapters are outlined in the title menu so if you want to reference something quickly its a breeze. The basics section involves an orientation of all the controls and buttons and an overview of the different program modes. It then gets into how to compose photos and depth of field. The advanced section gets into topics like white balance, exposure, and metering. It ends with a basics on the photo software included w/ teh camera. Many of my questions were answered and then some on this DVD. I was going to spend $350 for private photo lessons about basic photo understanding before I discovered this disc. Now, I feel condfident to go out and play with the camera for a couple months then enroll in an advanced photo class down the road.

I recommend this DVD for anybody who wants to get to know their SLR camera and begin to take great pics.

I just bought the Canon 20D and wanted to get up to speed on this camera fast so I also purchased the Canon 20D Digital SLR training video for new to intermediate users. It is great!

This DVD will improve you picture taking in one hour! It eliminates the new user getting up to speed on:

* The Why and How to use the various buttons/turning wheels to quickly configure the camera for different shots

* Understanding the differences between Basic Zones and Creative Zones and how to customize functions

* A quick overview of the software tools that is included with the camera

* For the beginner, the DVD does a good job at covering concepts such as AF Points, AF Modes, ISO, White Balance/Color Temperature, as well as photo Composition and printing

I highly recommend buying this DVD for those who are just starting into digital photography and have just bought themselves the Canon 20D.

Excellent software for understanding a Canon Digital SLR especially when upgrading from a compact digital camera, and for those times when a quick reference guide is needed when the mind goes blank ! - Great Software for a Great Camera, a perfect match when upgrading.

This is a great DVD! I used it as a refresher instead of breaking out the manual. The material flowed well and had breaks to put the knowledge to use. The Canon 20D has a lot of functionality. A picture is worth a thousand words applies here!
