Free Canon Camera Training

21 Jul 2011

The free Canon training no longer applies, but be sure to subscribe to our newsletter and we’ll keep you updated on news, specials or otherwise.

The free training course offered by Canon SA and Vega School is a basic introduction to photography with Canon DSLR cameras. It covers things like lens choice and the impact that has on depth of field and angle of view. It covers photography basics like aperture, shutter speed and ISO and then goes into detail about the usage of the mode dial, metering patterns and picture styles.

The course is a lot more than just a reading out of the manual and will hopefully give you the grounding you need to further explore photography. Please note that it is aimed at beginners, but even intermediate users may gain some insight.

As Canon has partnered with Vega School on this project, we fully endorse not only this course but also the entire range of courses offered by them.

The course is run by Vega and is available at selected branches:

444 Jan Smuts Avenue

501 Jorrisen Stree
Sunnyside East

Cape Town
Cnr. De Smidt & Somerset Roads
Green Point

16 Imvubu Park Place

Saturday 13th August 2011
Saturday 10th September 2011

Saturday 10th December 2011

The course will take place on the second Saturday of every month from 09h00-11h00.

      Hi Nicolette,

      You would have to check with Canon South Africa, they might be able to assist you. Canon SA – 012 675 4900.
      If Canon SA cannot help you we would recommend Photowise. Although it is not free it surely is value for money.
