This highly practical, intensive course will teach you everything you need to know to get filming with confidence on the Sony FS7, and how to get to grips with its continuous super slow motion capabilities.

Structured so that the crucial theory is interspersed with hands-on exercises, the course will take you step-by-step through setting it up to film with full manual control, teach you the camera’s technical strengths (and weaknesses), record broadcast quality sound, as well as showing you how to handle the tapeless workflow

More than simply covering the technical aspects of the camera for self-shooters, though, the course will also teach you key directing skills including framing, shot composition, building sequences, and shooting for the edit, so you can film material for broadcast.
