Latest course reviews...

Puts everything into focus!

Having attended the Matering Z8 Parts 1 and 2 recently this course provide a great recap and deeper dive into the autofocus functions of the Z8. Ricci provided clear explanations and great examples of the pros and cons of different focus modes. This is a must for anyone wishing to get the most of their Z8 especially if looking to try some different forms of photography. I can't wait to put what I leaned into practice!
