Bh_insights-224x166When I first published my DSLR guide, one of my favorite moments was finding the link posted to a forum, followed by a grizzled veteran's comment to the extent of, "I will not answer anyone's question here unless they go read this guide first." This was exactly what I wanted the guide to be -- a FAQ that would help others get started. Despite weighing in at a hundred-something pages, however, my own guide is far from comprehensive, and in the year since publishing it, a number of other training resources have sprung up (which is not to say that mine was the first). After creating their own HDSLR guide, B&H Photo is now launching an HDSLR training series in conjunction with DP Shane Hurlbut.

Here's the press release for HDSLRHub:
