    Haha, now it is also known as the D70/D70s workshop. Both D70 and D70s users are welcome.

When we took over the workshop, we did a whole revamp of the syllabus. The number of participants have also been limited to 20 per class (down from 40 to 50 as per the previous organiser) as we find it not feasible to have too big a group. We bite the bullet without changing the fee and we agreed that the fee will be set at $20 when the D70s is launched.

    This workshop, with the revised syllabus since April, not just cover the essential feature of the D70/D70s, it also cover a crash course in basic photography. Todate, more than 200 participants have enjoyed the workshop with good review.

    This workshop has never been free of charge. In fact, it is value for money even at $20 per head, as the instructor condense 3 lessons (worth $36) of the Society's Basic Photography course into the 3 hour workshop (only $20).

    Our main objective is to ensure that the participants come in and walk out of the class, a different photographer, which has been the case so far. The courses we conduct are usually not free as we have our standard and quality to uphold, and this usually come at a price as we have to source for the good instructors. This is for the benefit for the participants.

    Hope this clarify.
    That's sounds fair... As long as value for money.
