Get a “Fast Start” to knowing your new camera or the one you want!

We all do it when we get the itch to upgrade our camera body – we read and view information from multiple sources – take it all in and then pontificate the pluses and minuses of investing in a new camera.  It can be a numbing experience and sometimes we take in so much information analysis paralysis could be a possible outcome of your research.  We read reviews, watch popular gear experts on YouTube and even hop in photography forums and ask our photography friends what their thoughts are as we formulate our purchasing decisions….sound familiar?

All of this is completely natural pre-purchase behavior but you need to ask yourself – are you getting enough information from these sources to plunk down (in many cases) many thousands of dollars to upgrade your gear?  If your answer to that question is not clear, then consider another source that that goes a step well beyond reviews, YouTube videos and forum feedback –  its called a “Fast Start” from CreativeLive.

A “Fast Start” is a thorough course taught by well known industry professionals on the camera you have already purchased or are considering buying.  These courses are built in easy to consume bite sized lessons on the camera features, advantages and benefits and whats best – it gives you a leg up on “how to get the most of your camera”!  But beyond that, having that information BEFORE YOU BUY is invaluable – knowing what it can and can’t do is HUUUGE for those in the pre-purchase phase.

Below is a list of “Fast Start” courses from CreativeLive – in many cases you can view them for free as long as it is on their broadcast schedule!   So consider adding “fast starts” to your normal purchasing path – you won’t be sorry!  It is worth noting they offer 100% satisfaction guarantee on all Fast Starts and the approval ratings on those that enrolled is incredibly impressive.
