This 3-hour training video is the quickest way to learn both the fundamentals and advanced features of this amazing Super-35 camcorder and it's state-of-the-art tapeless NXCAM workflow. This is not a superficial review of the camcorder nor a quick look at the various functions. It took two months and more than 300 man-hours to research, write, plan, shoot, and edit this 3-hour, 2-DVD workshop. This training video not only tells you "what" a feature does, it also tells you "why", "when", and "how" to use it.
This is as close to a one-on-one training session as you can get without actually hiring Doug Jensen for personal instruction. How much is your time worth? For a small investment you get to tap into a wealth of knowledge that would normally take many days to acquire on your own . . . assuming that you ever discovered some of the tips and functions covered in this training video.
It includes tutorials, step-by-step examples, and detailed instructions covering the most important aspects of camera setup, menus, shooting techniques, choosing a video format, file management, clip importing, Picture Profiles, timecode, programming the assign buttons, customizing the viewfinder display, using the Flash Memory Unit, white balance, use of Zebras, focus assist functions, shutter speed, gain, time-lapse, slow-motion, lens options including Zeiss Compact Primes, Schneider Cine-Xenars, Sony PL lenses, Nikon SLR lenses, best practices for importing and archiving footage, and much more.
Like all of Vortex Media's productions, this is a completely independent production with no sponsorship, input, or approval from Sony. It delivers unbiased information and professional advice that can’t be found in the official FS100 operation manual -- without getting bogged down in jargon or unnecessary technical details.
This workshop is designed to help anyone, from a novice to an experienced ENG/EFP shooter, get the best results from their NEX-FS100. The DVD provides real-world examples and suggested techniques that are simple to put into practice.
NOTE: The FS100 and FS700 are very similar cameras, so Vortex Media has no plans to produce a special training DVD for the NEX-FS700.
