Need training for your Canon EOS 5D Mark II? planet5D is here to help

by planetmitch7 Comments

We're excited to announce that planet5D is expanding to offer new and exciting training to help you with your Canon EOS 5D Mark II. Now, not only does planet5D give you all the latest news, a buyer's guide to find your camera and accessories, user participation in our forums, as well as our huge information repository in the wiki, but we've also got the training you need! planet5D is indeed proving to be your one stop site for everything related to the Canon EOS 5D Mark II.

We're in the process of partnering with several trainers to bring some unique training. Our plan is to offer very affordable training that fits your needs in both an online format as well as offering DVDs. Nope, you don't have to pay to travel somewhere or to find a local opportunity for expensive training. You can get it all in the comfort of your own home, anywhere in the world!

And as an added bonus, we're planning on setting up protected sections on our forums for you to interact and ask questions of the trainers on some of the specific modules you've purchased (we may not be able to do it for all modules).

Our first offering is the “Final Cut Pro for Photographers Featuring Canon 5D Mark II Workflow” DVD from Frank Rohmer. We just recently reviewed this training on the blog and we're excited to bring this to you (right now, the DVD is an exclusive for planet5D). You can purchase this DVD for $49.95 plus shipping right now on planet5D's training page.

We have plans to bring you training not only on just the 5D mk ii, but on things like “fusion”, editing, accessories like steadycams and much more!

We're hoping to announce some additional training in the near future, so please keep your eyes on planet5D as we grow yet again! (note: a great way to keep your eye on us is to subscribe to the RSS feed – right over there in the right hand sidebar ===> )


  1. How about some video resources for Windows users? I’m not in a position to buy a whole new system for what is essentially a hobbyist interest.

      As a matter of fact, that’s one hole I’m specifically looking to fill! Thanks for the suggestion. Anyone else have any requests?

  2. I 2nd Henry, I would snatch up a Windows based training DVD, toot sweet. have it exactly like your final cut pro but using maybe Adobe Premier…You’d be making a bunch of us extremely happy..

      I spoke to Frank about that last night as a matter of fact… and I think he agrees – that’s one of the top things we’d like to put out – and he’s got the equipment and training on Premier to accomplish that. Please keep an eye on planet5D (subscribe!) to know more about that when we can announce it.

  3. My wife envies my Thom Hogan D700 disk & book and wishes she had something (book, DVD, anything) for her MkII. Something more in-depth than the Manual.

  4. How about some simple info about what to do after you shoot some clips. What do I need to convert my clip? What Windows software works. Just some of the begineer stuff.
