Who is this course for and what cameras is it good for?
This course is perfect if you are brand new to using a Canon DSLR. This course is great if you have zero experience with photography or if you already know a lot about photography, but are new to Canon DSLR cameras. Please note that this course will teach you how to use your Canon DSLR camera. It is not a complete photography course that will teach you the artistic and creative side of photography. This course is a more tech-specific course.
We taught this course using one of the latest Canon DSLRs in the Rebel series (the most popular camera for beginner photographers). Even if you are not using a Canon Rebel camera, this course should be beneficial to you. Most Canon DSLR cameras are very similar and have similar options, buttons and features. Specifically our demonstrations use the T7i (also known as the 800D in some countries).
If you have a Canon 80D, 70D, 60D, T7i, T6i, T6s, T5i, T4i, T3i, T7, T6, T5, SL2, SL, 7D, 6D, 5D, 800D, 760D, 750D, 700D, 650D, 600D, 550D, 500D, or any other model of Canon camera, this course should help you.
100% Money-back Guarantee
If you are unsatisfied with the course, or if it just isn't for you, we have a 30-day money-back guarantee.
Our goal is to make sure you love this course! We are always listening to students and improving our courses to make them even better. If you ever have a suggestion on how to make this course better, just let us know!

for someone who has no background knowledge of how to use a canon DSLR , this course is super and I feel more confident using my camera now.Also,I'll enroll for the photography masterclass offered by the instructor
Thank you so much for this course. It has help me understand my canon camera a lot better. Keep up the great work and look forward to other courses. Thank you!
It's not my first course with Phil, who is just a fantastic teacher from the basics to the advanced aspects of Photography
I already knew most of the basics from my experience using the camera. This course is allowing me to forget anything I may think I already know and learn the ins and outs of my camera. Most of the other modes on the dial of my 80d were alien to me. This really helped me learn the exposure triangle.
Yes, I have used the auto settings for the camera, bu that is about it. Anxious for the next lesson :)
I am learning so much about my camera and it's capabilities! This definitely helped me understand the "ins" and "outs" of my T6i to improve my game!
I knew a little about what was taught. But now I'm sure of what I was doing. After these other lessons so much detail so much to memorize and remember
The class was a great highlight for many needed topics for those with new cameras or those trying to learn the basics.
This class is exceptional! I just purchased my first DSLR camera and had no idea where to start. After finishing this course, I feel I have a very good grasp of all the features and capabilities of my camera and am looking forward to taking the masterclass!!!
Finding this course extremely helpful and interesting. Operating my Canon camera alongside the instructions, brilliant.
De cursus is speciaal voor mijn aangekochte model... en dat is niet alleen gemakkelijk maar ook een manier om snel aan de gang te gaan.
I love this class. It gave me more confidence as a beginning photographer, that I know what my camera is capable of & what option I have for its use artistically. I've always liked Phil's teaching style, he goes in depth but always have been very visual, which is how I learn. THANKS PHIL!
A fairly thorough intro to Canon DSLR cameras. Even though my old, out-dated T3 is missing many of the features of the sample T7i used, I still learned things about my camera that I never knew! I've seen a few reviews bothered by the dark background of the video, but I understand why Phil did it. The darker background removes the distractions and focuses the students' attention on the instructor. I'm looking forward to the MasterClass!
Quite good indeed. I have just purchased a Canon EOS 250D and I am learning quite a lot of "tricks" from these videos!
