If you follow any kind of photography news you have heard about the Sony A9 and its unique pass through sensor, high speed burst and awesome focusing systems. We received our A9 yesterday and have begun production on the crash course, as well as preliminary testing for its Epic Shootout against at least one, and possibly 2 flagship model cameras from the two largest camera manufacturers. (Wow…what an Epic Shootout that would be!). This will amount to about 6-8 weeks of total work, but expect the Crash Course to be finished in about 3-4 weeks.

I am often asked why I make training courses for higher end cameras when “beginners” would never buy such a high end model. What I have learned is that camera owners will typically purchase the best camera they can afford, regardless of their background. In some cases it might be a $400 A6000, or in other cases a $4500 A9, and for the many, many first time camera owners who decide to go with a higher end model, there aren’t many good training videos on them, so this is my reasoning.

If you are interested in being notified when the Sony A9 Crash Course Tutorial Training Video is ready, please leave your name and email in the comments below and we will contact you as soon as it is available.

This is the cover I decided to go with. I love sunsets, and took this one near my home.
