PHO101 - Camera and App Guide.

Camera Requirement:
You can use the cell phone for the class or a DSLR or mirrorless digital camera.

We do have cameras for check out, but this pandemic puts a glitch in the checkouts when CSN locks down.
•For any Check-out of equipment, you must present a current CSN student ID. Without an ID no equipment will be checked out. If you are not sure about the operation of a new camera ASK, your instructor or a lab tech on proper handling and usage. At the time of checkout you may be tested on the operation of equipment. If you do not pass the test you will not be given equipment.
•Students must supply their own SD cards for recording images when photographing and a card reader for downloading images to a computer.

There are some great buys on starter cameras if you look.
Our local full service camera store is B&C Camera.
