Canon EOS Advanced Autofocus Training Cape Town

Canon EOS Autofocus / AI Servo Master Class Cape Town
"Master your Canon EOS Autofocus System / Fine-tune your Camera for Action and Birds in Flight Photography"

Over the last two years I have facilitated a number of Birds in Flight / Action Photography workshops in Milnerton / Woodbridge Island, Cape Town.


Most of my previous workshops stopped short of providing hands-on opportunities (for individual delegates) for fine-tuning and testing specific AF / AI Servo configurations and lens-specific adjustments (via Reikan Focal 2.5.0 Autofocus Micro-Adjustment Calibration Software for Canon EOS bodies.

Please noteReikan FoCal Autofocus Micro-Adjustment (AFMA) Calibration Software only works with Canon EOS DSLR cameras with the embedded Micro Adjustment function (available in most Canon EOS enthusiast and professional DSLR bodies). See Canon EOS / Reiken FoCal AFMA compatibility table (for supported Canon EOS camera bodies) towards the bottom of this page. More information

Autofocus / AI Servo Cape Town Training Objective
To provide Canon enthusiast / professional photographers with a hands-on learning and configuration experience through-out the full duration of the theory / settings session covering the current Canon 61-Point and 65-Point AF Systems - with enough shooting opportunity via three separate practical shooting sessions.

Cost: R1 250-00 for a full day and two practical shooting sessions (10 hours +). 

25% Discount for delegates who attended any of my other photography workshops
