July 23, 2007 – Nikon last week announced that its Nikon School of Photography is now offering two instructional DVDs for consumers. The educational products, geared for beginner digital SLR users, feature Nikon camera body demonstrations.
Both Nikon DVDs are hosted by National Geographic Traveler photographer Bob Krist. The "Fast, Fun & Easy: Great Digital Pictures" DVD is a 35-minute educational tool that demonstrates shooting in various conditions using the Nikon D40 and D40x. The tutorial also includes instructions for image transfer and printing.
The second DVD, "Understanding Digital Photography," includes instructions for low light shooting, portraits, and sports photography. The 45-minute DVD features the Nikon D40, D40x, D80, and D200 cameras, but the techniques demonstrated can be applied to any digital SLR, according to a June 18th company press release.
"Nikon believes that true customer satisfaction can only be realized when customers become comfortable and familiar with their cameras, enabling them to capture the pictures they've always dreamed of," said Edward Fasano, Nikon General Manager for Marketing of SLR System Products, in the company release. "Nikon is excited to offer two extremely valuable instructional tools that will help anyone become better familiarized with digital photography and their Nikon D-SLR camera. Useful tools, such as these DVDs, will help more Nikon customers get the most out of their cameras and from their picture-taking.'
The Nikon School "Fast, Fun & Easy: Great Digital Pictures" has a retail price of $9.95 and "Understanding Digital Photography" is priced at $14.95. The Nikon DVDs are available at the online Nikon Mall and at U.S. retailers.
