Sony Launches "Howto" Video Guides

If you've ever had a friend who picked up their first decent point-and-shoot or DSLR, took some shots and said "this camera sucks", then you understand the pain that camera companies must deal with on a daily basis. No matter how good the camera is, you still have to know how to use it to get good pictures. Incorrect settings and poor composition can't be made up for by expensive gear or fancy scene modes.

To help deal with the issue of undereducated consumers trying to use their cameras for the first time, Sony has launched a series of videos to help folks learn more about the gear they own. The videos range from the very basic, like How to Choose the Right Cable, to less basic topics like How to Shoot Photos in Low Light.

The videos break everything down to the most basic version and are specific to Sony products, so owners of Sony cameras will likely get the most out of it. Check out the Sony UK YouTube page for more.
