Kodak to offer free training for SLR buyers - Buy a DCS Pro 14n camera and get free basic training worth 100s
Photographers who have already bought the company's DCS Pro 14n camera or the
latest DCS Pro SLR/n will be able to get a full day's basic training in a modern
training facility at no extra cost.
And customers who order the new DCS Pro SLR/c - the Canon EOS mount version available in May - will also be entitled to free training under the new scheme.
Explained David Kitchin, Kodak Professional's Marketing Manager, Digital Products:
"Moving to a new digital workflow can often be a daunting proposition but
with this new deal we can really add value and help lighten the load for photographers
who choose the Kodak route to digital capture.
The new programme will give our digital SLR customers a unique opportunity to get to grips with this outstanding new technology over a complimentary day-long workshop run by digital capture experts."
Kodak plans a series of courses throughout the year in conjunction with Imaging Training Limited with optional follow-up courses available on a one to one basis by both Imaging Training Limited and former Kodak digital guru David Blundell.
The first workshop run by Imaging Training Limited will take place at Oxhey, near Watford on April 27 and monthly thereafter until the end of November.
Imaging Training Limited MD Tony Eatough, formerly Head of Kodak Professional
in Europe, said: "This is a superb offer from Kodak for photographers
requiring a fundamental overview plus basic training on the new cameras.
As people continue to invest more and more in digital technology training becomes a 'must-have' add-on to the product purchase.
We will be setting up a studio situation in conjunction with The Flash Centre and around a dozen photographers at a time will be able to learn about digital capture workflow techniques from industry experts.
We will also be offering photographers additional one-to-one training at very competitive prices for those who decide they could benefit from further comprehensive tuition."
