FREE to Watch [starts Wedn 12pm ET]: Fuji X-T3 Fast Start Class

Fuji Learnings time! Starting at 12pm eastern on Wednesday 9/9/20, CreativeLIVE will be re-broadcasting for FREE their 5 hour and 12 minute Fast Start class with John Greengo on the Fuji X-T3 mirrorless camera. This goes through the camera in 23 lessons (controls, menus, etc). The list of chapters is shown over there. Once the free-streaming begins, you can watch it like over-the-air TV. You cannot rewind or start from the beginning [unless you buy it of course].

Since the free-streaming lasts for 24 hours, and the is 5 hours and 12 minutes long, the re-re-broadcast start-times are:

+ 12pm ET
+ 512pm ET
+ 1024pm ET
+ 336am ET
+ 848am ET [this will be incomplete because the 24 hour window closes just before 12pm ET]

This is a good opportunity to learn about the camera if you are curious about buying it. John Greengo has a very even-keeled matter-of-fact easy-listening teaching-style that is conducive to e-learnings…

PS: disambiguation: it’s easy to add or remove a “0” from Fuji camera model names, so this PS is certifying that this is indeed the Fuji X-T3, not the X-T30 🙂
