Been getting a lot of questions about the new Nikon D750 which should be shipping soon. The D750 looks to be a full frame all-round workhorse somewhere between the D810 and D610. Im already revising some new scripts, and should have my hands on the body tomorrow. We will start production on the Nikon D750 Tutorial Training Crash Course immediately at that time. The download version will take about 3-4 weeks to finish and we should have the DVD ready sometime in November (just in time for the holiday season).
Ill be posting production updates here as we go. Best case scenario is we can have it ready mid-October.
