Nikon school - Advanced Digital Workflow
Anyone attended this school? I am assuming a Nikon school will be good, but comments would be appreciated.

The class lasted a full 8 hours, and covered a good amount of information on all the steps in digital workflow (e.g. camera, software/editing, printing, organizing, sharing). The two instructors were very good, were engaging and kept the class on track. My criticism of the class is that it was over-crowded (about 150 people) so was not a workshop but rather a lecture/presentation. Questions were limited to an absolute minimum (only during breaks basically), an aspect I found frustrating. Nikon should clarify this to potential students so they don't go into the class expecting any amount of personal attention. Also, at $150/person, Nikon School grossed about $22,500. That said, they should have invested more to either split the group over a few days or had a multiple of the number of instrictors on-site (e.g. 8 - 10) so attendees could have had some of their individual needs adressed.
In summary - good class, worth the time and effort, but room for improvement for us loyal Nikon customers/users.

The title "Advanced" is a misnomer. I enjoyed the class--because I enjoy my hobby--but the lecture was pretty basic. I didn't learn much new, and my belief is that anyone fairly active on this board probably isn't going to learn anything new either. Save your money and buy yourself a nice $150 camera toy.

When I went to Nikon School, they actually need 100 people to break even. My class had 133 and that was considered to be a light class. However it is set up as more of a seminar-lecture than an open answered class section, though we had a small Q&A right after lunch. There are a lot more costs there than are appearent. They also make it no point to nite they are there more less as sales pitch Though the info was incredible. When I attened there were comp
