Camera 101: Mirrorless Cameras

Our Camera 101: Mirrorless Cameras class is for owners of any mirrorless interchangeable lens camera system. This includes all Sony, Fuji, Olympus, and Panasonic cameras as well as Canon's 'M' series and a few others. Advanced point and shoot and 'super zoom' cameras of any brand are also welcome in this class.

This class provides the essential first steps to learning how to get the very best results with your mirrorless camera. This includes understanding and applying best-practice techniques for camera handling, focusing, and other key aspects of the camera that you'll use every day.

Next, we'll guide you beyond AUTO and into shooting modes designed for specific scenarios like sports, portraiture and landscape - all where better and more creative results are waiting.

For the most exciting and fulfilling part of this class, we'll have you taking control of your camera, hands-on, to achieve great results in challenging scenarios including: low light, moving subjects and backlit situations. We'll also have you learning how to take control of your camera's focus system to ensure your subject is always clear and sharp.

- Essential everyday camera controls
- Using camera presets for specific shooting scenarios
- Taking control of focus for clear and sharp photos

  • Great class for moving beyond AUTO

  • March 12, 2017
  • By: Ellen

I wanted to learn how to move beyond the auto features on my Panasonic DMC-FZ200 camera. I am a beginner photographer and found this class very helpful. We covered using Scene mode and dived deeply into using Portrait mode with various adjustments to ISO, exposure, focus and much more. We took some photos in class, but most of the time is spent learning how the features work and where they are on your camera. Glen was an excellent teacher, very patient, explained everything well and give us some really good tips.
