Absolutely excellent course. There's no way I would have figured all this out. If you've just bought the A7III and want to use it to it's full potential you totally have to watch this. The videos are well structured, easy to follow and beautifully articulated. Some of the topics are quite complicated but Caleb does a stellar job explaining them in a coherent and methodical way. Thank you so much.

I got some discount when buying my Sony a7 iii camera and decided to buy this guide with the saving. Well worth it!! I can't recommend this enough. I've watched Caleb for some time now on Youtube and trust his opinions and also like his clear teaching style with attention to detail. You know you're going to learn something every time you press play on his videos. When I saw the price of this guide I thought I might just leave it BUT I decided to go for it and give it a try. The reason it is so good is that it's all the information you need in one place. Easily accessible and clear to jump in to any sections you want at any point. You can also revisit any sections. Way better than reading a manual. He also gives you advice on the best settings to suit you. He doesn't just stop at the camera though. The advice can be used across many cameras and helps so much. Caleb, thank you! You deserve every penny of this. Thank you for putting all that time in to help us with figuring out this awesome camera. I bet you enjoyed filming this though and playing around with the features of this camera. I can't wait to get started now. Cheers, Sam

Concise and descriptive - Caleb explains his logic for his suggested settings and shows examples. alternate options are included as well. He provides links to information sites and equipment. He is considerate in recommending options with various price ranges. I purchased this video after seeing other persons on YouTube presented their r3commended sett8mg in a tornado fashion without the whys and why nots. I just got my a73 and am historically an amateur photographer. However, my pro-photographer Son told me about the video capabilities, and I need Caleb’s sett8ngs for an upcoming safari. With his help, I will set M2 for an instant change to the best video settings to change, if I get live action scenes.. Many thanks. Dr. B
