Re: Courses by Yours Truly

I'd certainly like to do both but the Lightroom one would be easiest for me to justify as I tried it a while ago and just didn't get anywhere hence I've probably got the most potential for learning from that one. The camera one is more difficult to justify to myself as I've played around a lot already although I'm sure I'd enjoy it. For me it's probably going to come down to price although Olympus vouchers may just tip the balance and help offset travel costs.

Re: Courses by Yours Truly

Hi - I am picking up this very old thread because I would like to know the current situation re 'Training Days', (with anyone). I am a new member and new owner of an M5 Mkll, and new to M43. 50 yrs Pentax experience though. So I am looking for some hands on help to get the best from this great kit.
Can you help?
Thanks,
Paul (iso).

Re: Courses by Yours Truly

Well - if we can get at least 15 people signed up for, say 50 each and we can all agree on a date I will commit to a running a day's course on getting up and running with Olympus Micro Four Thirds cameras. There, I said it! Including refreshments and a light lunch. This is dependent on the venue I have had in mind in Hemel Hempstead being available. Over to you guys!

Re: Courses by Yours Truly

This is always a problem. If there was enough interest in your neck of the woods of course I'd be up for it.

Ian

PS I'm fine - more to the point I hope you are well too!

Re: Courses by Yours Truly

How about doing them as web casts as well then many more of us could join in without travelling. Reduced cost but more attendees to maximise your returns Ian? just a thought.
