    I'm not trying to be overly critical of your video however if you had a body mic I would be able to hear you more clearly without the echo.

    Hi. After a little experience with film photography back in the late 80's, I am just starting out in digital photography with a Nikon D3500. Thank you so much for all your free online tutorials! They are so helpful and they are also helping me to get through this darn pandemic (writing from the States).

    one of the best style of teaching in this field. I would suggest one thing, as your viewership is across the globe, so sometimes your fast speed of English Speaking can be difficult for some followers to understand. In next video, if you can speak a little slow, it will be more good for those viewers whose English is not so good. Like me 🙂

    I bought my camera two months ago and I learned more from your 4:44 min video than I did from the manual in all that time. Now on to part two! lol.
