In this course we will discuss the very basic operation of Nikon DSLR cameras, such as setting your cameras resolution, basic flash operation, basic menu functions, memory cards, storage and more. This class will cover all Nikon DSLR cameras. Whether you purchased the camera for yourself, or received it as a gift, this is the class to get your questions answered so you can start taking photos!
What is a DSLR camera? DSLR stands for Digital Single-Lens Reflex. DSLR models typically offer interchangeable lenses, full manual controls, external flash units, and through-the-lens (TTL) viewfinders. They are usually large models and they closely resemble 35mm film cameras with handgrips and large lens housings. If you do not have a DSLR camera please consider taking Understanding Your Digital Camera with Art Ramirez instead.
Class duration is three hours. (Two and half hours, with time for questions at the end.) This class covers all Nikon DSLR cameras.

REFUNDS AND CANCELLATIONS: Our goal is to provide a fun and professional learning environment that fosters a positive experience and builds a strong relationship with Samy's Camera customers. Unless otherwise noted, all classes require advance registration due to limited seating and/or availability. Samy's EDU makes the decision to run a class based on the attendance level 48 hours prior to the class. Because of this, we can only offer a refund if you notify us by sending an email to EDU@Samys.com 48 hours before your class. If you fail to provide email notification or if you cancel less than 48 hours prior to the class all monies will be forfeit and you will not receive a refund. On occasion we may cancel a class because of low enrollment and/or unforeseen professional conflict on the part of the instructor. Should this be the case, all monies will be refunded in full. We do not take responsibility for non-refundable airline tickets, so please buy a refundable ticket if you are coming from outside of Los Angeles.
