have not attended and don't know

but course syllabus as listed seems a bit "Simple ?"
assuming you already have some photo experience and can read the manual
somemore $150.00 not cheap ( plus i am broke : )

though the "World of Night Photography"
http://www.sony.com.sg/cgi-bin51/hsrun/MySony/trainingcourse/trainingcourse.hjx;flag=restart;start=trainingcourse.HsBVT_overview.run?COURSEID=5&PAGE=Overview

seems more interesting and affordable at $99 ...

I attended that course before. Not worth the time, money and trouble, unless you are an absolute newbie. E.g. Aperture, DoF, shutter speeds, F stops, etc, all mean nothing to you. Or you have absolutely no idea what the mentioned items relate to you snapping a picture. Maybe you should consider attending.

First half of the lesson was spent in the classroom going thru the fundamentals of photography and some features of the F828. Second half was spent shooting around the 1 Fullerton to Esplanande. Time was too short, instructors weren't exactly the best.

You'll probably learn more by reading the Sony eBook and hanging around with the F828 weilding jedis around here.

They do cover stuff like EV lock, focus assist, multi-pattern & spot metering, etc. But nothing you won't won't pick up from the ebook. IMO not worth the $150.

Do yo have a copy of the ebook?

Just wonder if anyone attended Sony F828 course?
Is it good?
There is a training on 24 Jul 04...$150 bucks though...
Hi rexus and Sony buddies
The Best course is to get a whole bunch of us meet together for photo taking/or chit chat in Coffee Bean to exhange knowlege, how-hows, you know, I know information.

Its free and also it get to know more friends. :D
