The Sony FS100 & FS700 Workshop is designed to be a hands-on class covering the various functions of Sony's newest NEX Super-35 cameras. You will gain a detailed understanding of the many features of the FS100 and FS700, including the menu system, camera operation, lens options, post-production workflow, and available accessories. Emphasis is on developing an understanding of the camera sensor, recording format, lens choice, and menu systems.
In the first part of the course, Abel trainers will give a full introduction to the FS100 and 700 cameras including: sensor specifics, recording formats, output options, menu systems, assignable functions, slow-motion, and basic color control.
In the second part, Abel trainers will demonstrate practical shooting examples, give an in-depth look at the camera’s picture profiles and explain the different gamma modes. We will also explore post production workflow techniques. This is a very hands-on part, where attendees will be able to develop and fully understand the complexities of creating a look with the FS100 and FS700 as well as working with AVCHD in post-production.
