READ WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
ABOUT OUR VIDEOS!!!
Hi Just to let you know that I received the video. I watched a short portion of this
video and already found it informative and enjoyable to watch. I know this
may sound silly but I like the fact that you use a pen to point to the various parts of
the camera. I had another video where the instructor used his fingers and you could
never see where he was pointing. Thanks for a pleasant transaction.
| John, first of all thank you for the videos! I got your video about videography for weddings several years ago and started my business. We just got best of pick form the Knot! We are now shooting photography and got the 40d video. Really awesome! Voted “Best of Wedding Pick 2008” by the Knot brides for photography & videography Capturing the Moment Forever…Doug & Michelle Haber
Just received your 2-disk video on Nikon D300.
BEST INVESTMENT EVER MADE!
Sure beats reading the 400 page manual. Allan
I recently received your DVD on the Nikon D300. I found it very helpful as that
camera is a piece of work. Unfortunately the first disc worked only until the second
to the last chapter. I called you number and was told that another disk
would be sent out right away. If all companies were as honest and prompt as yours
this would be a better world. I received the new disk and if worked perfectly.
Thank you again, first for having a great product and second for
standing behind your products.--Charley Thomas
First, your video on the D300 is awesome!! Its so easy to follow. My camera before the D300 was a Canon Elph, your video helped make my transition in cameras a successful one, now that I know what all the buttons and menu options do all I have left to do is practice.
My friend who has had the D200 for a few years and doesn’t know how to fully use it still, says, “Wow, you got this D300! That’s going to take you a while to learn how to use.” I told him, Ialready know how to use everything on it, I just watched the DVDs on it from Elite Video.” He will be ordering your D200 DVDs soon if he hasn’t already.
The training DVDs arrived yesterday and they worked perfectly on my PAL DVD
player and MACPRO PC. The training material & pace of presentationis perfect!
I can now appreciate what all the knobs and buttons on the FX7 do which was
not clear from the manual supplied by SONY. I'm one of those people who easily
get bored with lengthy manuals.
I also found the video sessions on using the camcorder on disk 2 enjoyable to watch
and very informative.
I'm dying to tryout the 'film like' shooting with background blur!
Thanks again for your prompt service delivering the DVDs to me so quickly.
Good luck with your future training ventures.
Best wishes Dalip
I just wanted to tell yall that a year and a half ago I bought your dvd for my Nikon
D50. The same day I received my dvd I quit shooting in automode and never looked
back. I ordered a Nikon D300 this week and the very next thing on my list was your
dvd tailored to the D300. I just wanted to let you know that I am thankful for your
company and have recommended your products to several folks on the outdoor
photography forum where I post my pictures.
Y'all have a great day and thanks again,Chris Funk
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the 2 videos on the Olympus Evolt E-510.
Great job! Thank you.

Love the dvd's! Glad I ordered them. Went from using my slr's over my lifetime,
to a Coolpix 5900 which I loved, but needed more controls to the D40X.
Until now I had not been able to control the camera as I wanted.
In fact the pictures were worse than the point & shoot.
So thanks, I'm on my way! Harry
Thank you very much. I got the DVDs OK. Your team has made a fantastic job
and I have enjoyed the courses. I have learned more than I expected
and now I can handle my D300 much much better.
Thank you to all of you again for this great job.
Best regards, Michel
I recently purchased the Sony HC3 video and am grateful for the depth, quality and
professionalism of the presentation. I've had this camera for about a year and didn't
understand a great deal of its functionality, but your DVD has increased my
Thanks. Dean R. Dvorak
I've purchased your Canon 40D video as well as the XH-A1 video and found them
to be very helpful in understanding how to use my new equipment. Your videos were
a great way to get school room training without having to travel to a location and
incurring the expenses of an overnight stay and the fuel for transportation.
I encourage you to continue creating these videos, as I will certainly continue buying
them as they pertain to areas of my specific interest.
I just switched from Nikon and Sony to all Canon gear… very reluctantly, I might add…
and am pleased to shorten my learning curve on Canon products because of these
videos and other resources online.
I just want to comment on what a good idea this is. I have aD300 and can say
pretty confidently that I have almost mastered it. But, I remarked to my wife that
it's only because I did nothing for about 5 days straight besides learn the camera
and I have the added benefit of having owned 85% of all the pro Nikons ever made.
You are correct in assuming that even an above average shooter especially one starting
photography in the digital era, would have trouble fully realizing the potential of this
My name is Joel L. Weisberg and I'm a Band Director in Dallas, Texas.
I have always had an interest in photography and recently purchased a
Canon 40D camera.
In addition, I saw your DVDs advertised and purchased a set. Wow! I was a little
afraid that all the buttons and options would be too daunting and that I would
leave the camera in the automatic mode for most of the time...
I know, really negating the purpose for purchasing this kind of camera.
Anyway, the 40D Made Easy parts I and II are really FANTASTIC! As you guys
state in the DVDs,
film is cheap in the digital world...I have been out shooting and practicing since the
day I watched the DVD's.
Not only were they very informational, but you guys take the time to show some
practical applications for the many features on the camera. I especially like the idea
of taking the same shot with a variety of settings (and thanks for the tip to write
them down so we remember what we like and don't like) so we can see what the
adjustments really do, and which ones we like.
Thank you for making these available! Have you given any thought to making a
part III or IV?
I would love to explore the abilities of such an outstanding camera even further.
I HAD CONSIDERED BUYING A D200 WHEN THEY FIRST CAME OUT
I BOUGHT THE VIDEO FROM CRAIN ON THE D200
I REALLY DID LIKE IT IT GIVES A LOT OF VALUABLE INFORMATION
AND IF YOU DO NOT KNOW MUCH IT IS GREAT
BUT I SAW THE ADD FOR THE D300 BY ELITE VIDEO IN POPULAR
I HAVE BOUGHT THE VIDEO FROM YOU AND WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BAM!!!!!!!!CAZAM!!!!!!!! WHAT A DIFFERENCE
WHILE THE VIDEO ON CRAIN TELLS A LOT ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY
YOUR VIDEO GOES INTO GREAT DETAIL ON HOW TO OPERATE ALL
THE DIALS AND BUTTONS ON THE D300 AND IT HAS A PILE OF
BUTTONS! I AIN'T TO SMART WITH DUMB BOOKS AND THOSE CRAZY
MANUALS, I LEARN BY SEEING--SO THIS VIDEO ON THE D300 NOT
ONLY SAVED ME A MONTHS WORTH OF BOOK WORK IN JUST A FEW
HOURS--IT ALSO MOVED ME AHEAD TO THE STUFF I WOULD OVERLOOK.
IF SOME BODY DON'T HAVE NOTHING TO DO BUT WASTE THEIR
TIME USE THE CRAIN VIDEO AND THE DUMB MANUAL -----IF YOU WANT
TO LEARN TO USE THE D300 IN A MATTER OF HOURS I CAN NOT RECOMMEND
THE VIDEO D300 ENOUGH... THAT VIDEO HAS SO MUCH VALUE.
THANKS FOR THE GOOD JOB THANKS FOR THE PERFECT JOB.

I am a novice photographer who recently purchased a Sony A100. I found the instruction manual was
very complicated and intimidating. I thought there must be a better way and fortunately for me so did you folks.
I purchased your instructional video and I can't tell you how much it has helped me learn to use this great camera.
Your instruction and explanations are so straight forward and that I felt comfortable from the start.
Still far from expert, I go back to the video often for help and reference.
Great Job! Sincerely Ralph Talarico
Recently I purchased one of the Nikon made easy training DVDs. I got the package promptly.
After watching the DVD I feel compelled to write this add on. This DVD Training has far surpassed my expectations
in the superior production quality to the ease of conveying all the information needed to master this camera.
If I need another training video I will buy again with the utmost of confidence. Thank you again for your superior product.- chazzwestlv
Just to tell you how thrilled I am with your training video for the Nikon D-40x. I accidentally discovered this product.
I ordered the one by Blue Crane first and was frustrated and disappointed with it, then decided to try yours, which I just received.
I am delighted at the presentation (natural, not scripted, visual focus on the camera, not the presenter), organization,
clarity and thorough detail. I have much more to see and am excited at the prospect, especially since I have already
learned a ton more in less viewing time than with the Blue Crane video.
Too bad more people don’t know about these videos (I’m telling everybody I know-especially women-who
never get through the camera manuals or can’t remember what they read when they next pick up the camera).
When I realized there were videos available to help me learn the camera I felt reassured that I wouldn’t waste my
$1100 by getting stuck on using only automatic mode. I went ahead with my camera purchase.
I’m so glad I did so and then found the “Elite” training version.
Good work! Ellen Sloan8/14/07
Hello, Great video might I say! It was very thorough and user friendly.
I've seen the nikon school/blue crane/magic lantern videos, and by far, Elite top's them all. Great Job! Up and coming photographer...
Hi, I am a college student from Tennessee and a
photography enthusiast. I recently purchased a Canon
XTi as well as your training dvd. Let me first say
that I bought your product along with a couple of other
"training dvds" and yours was by far the best. It was
filled with content and tips while the others just
gave a brief overview of the camera.Thanks
for your time! -Justin
Believe it or not ;) I work in the digital imaging department at Best Buy here in Clearwater, FL.
I talk about DSLR's all day 5 days a week, but actually know very little on the detailed use of them.
I just bought the Sony A100. Your description on your listing won me over, as I could understand it :)
the others lost me in their 1st paragraph of what the video included it was over my head before even viewing it.
Anyways to make a long story short, I do believe your video is supreme to the others
and recommend your store daily to my customers at Best Buy for any DSLR we sell-
I hope you have already reaped the benefits from my referrals-Best to you!!Tracey Wilkinson
(Not sure if Best Buy would mind me telling you this but I thought you should know-Thank you so very much!)
