This is a beginner's course and is open to anyone. If you are just starting with digital photography then you're in the right place!
We recommend any "system camera" which has a changeable lens (such as those from Olympus, Sony, Fujifilm, Panasonic, Nikon or Canon). We are “brand-agnostic” at Viewfinder, so any camera brand is just fine. If you own a 50mm ("standard lens") please bring it with. We have several 50mm lenses for Nikon and Canon cameras which you are welcome to use during the course. Please be sure to charge your camera's battery and don't forget to bring a memory card with you.
*NOTE: If you currently do not own a camera, we are happy to loan you one for the course.
Viewfinder Center, Stampfenbachstr. 157, 8006 Zürich
