    Gary Fong has a couple very good videos on his website. Cost $12, but can watch as often as you want and worth the price.

    I bought the fong thing and it is very good, there wasn't a sale pitch in sight. I've used his diffusers back when I did photography as my money maker and they did what was advertised, but they are way too big, and draw attention away from the scene. Now I use demb products, except they don't have a super great twelve dollar tutorial.

    Button config gets pretty personal to the lenses you shoot (AF, legacy/MF), etc. but the thing I recommend most is use Auto ISO and change the top deck Control Dial to control Ev Comp (change it in the Menu/Gear section). This way while looking through the viewfinder you can easily with your thumb change the Exposure bias +/- and lighten or darken the image to how you want before you shoot it taking advantage of the EVF.

    And if you did not already have it, here is Sony's 450+ pg guide to the camera:
