Canon Speedlite 580 EX II/ 430 EX II Crash Course is currently going for $39.97. This is until the first 580 are sold then the price jumps to $49.97. You can purchase the DVD from the Michael Andrew's store. Below are some samples of what comes on the video. You can also check in more detail the complete set of lessons on the DVD.
What I really found was how engaging and entertaining this video was. Keep in mind that you are getting a lot of detail here and you will most likely need to watch portions of these lessons a number of times as well as work the exercises to get the most benefit from this course.
Because of the way the video is produced, it will work on a computer as well as on a standard DVD player. If I had any criticisms about the Canon Speedlite 580 EX II/ 430 EX II Crash Course it would be that there are a couple of segments where the wind blowing is a distraction as it can be heard interfering with the microphone that being used.
If you want to learn how to use your Canon Speedlite 580 EX II or 430 EX II then you owe it to yourself to check out this DVD. You have probably spent somewhere around $250 to $500 for your Speedlite, spending less than $50 to learn how to use it to me is a no-brainer. I very highly recommend Canon Speedlite 580 EX II/ 430 EX II Crash Course.
