"Mastering the Canon XF305 & XF300 Camcorders" is the easiest way to learn both the fundamentals and advanced features of these amazing camcorders and their state-of-the-art tapeless 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 400 man-hours to research, write, plan, shoot and edit this 3.5 hour, 3-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 seminar as you can get without actually traveling to attend a class.
"Mastering the Canon XF305 & XF300 Camcorders" includes tutorials, step-by-step examples and detailed instructions covering the most important aspects of camera setup, menus, shooting techniques, clip naming, file management, clip importing, Custom Picture files, time-code, assign buttons, focusing, zooming, face-detect, shutter speed, time-lapse, slow-motion, basic editing, working with CAMSET files, taking still photos and more. No stone is left unturned.
This DVD is a completely independent production with no sponsorship, input, or approval from Canon. It delivers unbiased information and professional advice that can't be found in the XF305 and XF300 owner's manual. This workshop is designed to help anyone, from a novice to an experienced ENG/EFP shooter, get the best results from their XF305/300. The DVD provides real-world examples and suggested techniques that are simple to put into practice. This DVD will pay for itself many times over by saving you hours of time learning the XF305/300 on your own.

Excellent overview of the camera. Really great tips on 'how" to use the features and why. Can't get this info easily in other places. When I say slightly dated, I mean that he put this out when the camera was new, he has updated some of it at his web site. Also forgot to talk about the "Export to MXF" function in the Canon utility. But those issues are nits. This is a must have overview if you are new to the camera. WIll save you a lot of time and aggravation!
