    Your Recomendations For Canon 5D Mark III video tutorials ?

    Since going from a 400D to 5D3 I have been looking for a quick and easy way to learn the Canon 5D Mark III main features and functions without having to pore over a tedious manual.

    Canon has some interesting video tutorials available online that i have already been through a few times
    I have also found some good ones on Youtube

    Just wondering if anyone knows of some other great 5D 3 Turorials on the net?

    I went from a 30D to the 5D3 in two secs flat, Put it in manual and did the three settings, Aperture , ISO and shutter speed using the meter in the view finder , The metering system took a little to figure out , 64 focus points , But if you forget about all the bells and whistles and use it like cameras used to be all's good, Should work the same for TV and AV mode , Just get out and take some images and have a play would be my best advice
    Canon : 30D, and sometimes the 5D mkIII , Sigma 10-20, 50mm 1.8, Canon 24-105 f4 L , On loan Sigma 120-400 DG and Canon 17 - 40 f4 L , Cokin Filters

    Cheers william, have already taken some great shots. im the type of person that likes to work things out as quick as i can.
    But yeah i know where your coming from and thank you very much for the great advice. I dont care how much cash i spend on this
    hobby and i like to buy the best of the best the first time but the main thing now is to play with this camera everyday and learn to take better shots. Im very lucky that my job allows me to take photos everyday.

    There is a very good E-book on the 5D3 by a guy named Douglas Klostermann called the Canon 5D MkII Experience, and it deals with every function of the 5D3 is easy to understand terms.
    You can google his name and it should come up.
    The book is US$10-$20 or so, but I found it to be very good at explaining many of the intracies of the camera, especially the focussing system.
    It doesn't say much about the video side however, but I can highly recommend getting this book as PDF download, and you can then download it onto your phone for future reference.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.

    Reading the manual, while tedious, is something you need to do, once just a skim to see what's what and then a few weeks later -- it's amazing how useful the manual is.

    There are no real short cuts
