Re: Any experience of Experience Days?

I went to one in Cardiff earlier in the year and it was exactly as billed, plenty of lenses and a few bodies available to borrow and we went on a walk.

At certain points, specific functions and techniques were demonstrated, assistance given to those who wanted to try them out and the best way to emulate it if your kit did not support that function (e.g. focus stacking) was discussed

It certainly demystified and simplified a few settings for me and I would go on one again

It did result in my purchasing a 60mm macro for the focus stacking capability

Regards
Andy
