Camera Department: Continuing Education Series – Encore Presentation


A few weeks ago I was asked by friend and colleague, Seth Emmons of Leica – CW Sonderoptic, to speak at the first Camera Department: Continuing Education Series. The event was offer exclusively to Local 600 members for three days with a different group each day. We covered topics ranging from how to properly clean glass – what chemicals to use and what not to use – to simple infinity focus checking. It was great fun and a pleasure meeting some of our industries working professionals. The event was a sponsored by CW Sonderoptic as well as Camadeus Film Technologies who had some goodies on display from brands such as Leica, C-Motion, and Gecko-Cam. Back by popular demand, the Camera Department: Continuing Education Series is opening up the next event to everyone this time for a very reasonable fee.


I’ll be speaking both days; Thursday December 4th, from 2pm to 5pm; and the next day, Friday December 5th, from 12pm to 3pm. Register now and take this opportunity to get some hands on experience with test equipment in the projection room and ask me any questions you have in-person. Those who would benefit most from this course would be professionals who prep equipment from rental houses on a regular basis or owner-operators of any level looking to better understand lens maintenance and upkeep procedures. Space is limited so don’t wait too long to register. I hope to see as may of you as possible attend the workshop and take the opportunity to chat about lenses. …did I mention this event was at the Leica Store and Gallery? While you’re there, you can drool over the beautiful cameras and lenses Leica has on display as well as the ever evolving art gallery on display upstairs.

Thursday December 4th, 2pm to 5pm

  1. Hi Matthew,
    I won’t be able to attend your workshop on December 4th and 5th.
    Is there any chance it could be recorded, and offered for sale as a DVD or file download?

    Thanks W.S. Pivetta SOC

  2. Hi there,

    I would love to learn about those things! Afraidly I’m not living
    in the US.

    Have you thought about making a training series on DVD/download?
