Wonder how the new Cineframe and Cinematone functions work? Can't figure out the new Color Correction feature? HandsOn HDV explains these, and dozens of other important functions and suggested techniques in simple, no-nonsense language that makes mastering these cameras a breeze.
HandsOn HDV was shot entirely in HDV with Z1 and FX1 camcorders, edited with FCP, and output in 16x9 SD for the DVD. Throughout the video, a variety of video shooting modes are demonstrated and explained, including Cineframe 24, CinemaTone, and customized Picture Profiles.
This is not a bench-top demonstration or in-studio camera review. It is an in-depth training video with shooting done by professionals with years of ENG/EFP broadcast shooting experience. Shooting took place over a four week period in many locations of the country, under different conditions, indoors, outdoors, lit, natural light, sports, b-roll, interview setups, and in-studio, to give as much variety as possible to the demonstrations and examples.
An EXTRAS folder is included on the DVD with several exclusive documents, including: A detailed reference chart that outlines every customizable setting of all six of the default Picture Profiles so you can compare them and see the differences. Also included is a comparison chart of the major differences between the Z1 and the FX1. Some features discussed in the video only apply to the Z1 and this chart helps identify those differences.
HandsOn HDV will tell you everything you'll need to know to get up and running quickly with either of the Sony HDV camcorders. All of the essential features and functions are covered in detail.
