HD Camera Basics
HD Camera Basics
Your choice in camera and skill with it are crucial to ensuring great work. How you frame and follow action is more important than the camera you choose, but the camera does make a difference.
This class will approach compositional and shooting practices that will help your work with any camera and then move on to discussing the key differences between the different digital and HD cameras on the market to help guide your decision in purchasing the best camera for your needs.
Students will work with at least three different types of cameras hands-on and be guided through shooting exercises to optimize their learning experience. Cameras used vary (as industry standards change + update), however, we will always implore, provide, and teach with the most up-to-date technologies. Camera examples for 2019 including: Canon XF400, Canon EOS Rebel, and Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro with lens kit.
