Only A Few Days Left for Trade-In Credit towards Sony a7 Cameras and Lenses

So you didn't get the new Sony a7 Camera you wanted for the holidays? Well there's still time to take advantage of Sony's trade-in incentives toward a new a7 camera and/or select lenses. In addition to the trade value of your working SLR or mirrorless camera, B&H is also offering 15% credit toward your purchase. I don't want to sound like an advertisement, but I had an opportunity to use the Sony a7 system recently for a product shoot and I'm definitely buying one. I just need to figure out whether to go with the a7, a7II, a7R, or a7S before this promotion expires on December 31st.

I wanted to quickly learn the basics and start shooting right away. I’m a visual learner, and I figured a crash course in an online tutorial would be my best bet, but searching for tutorials scattered across Youtube seemed tedious.
