This is a quick overview of Vortex Media's 4-hour training DVD for Sony's PMW-F3 camcorder.

"Mastering the Sony PMW-F3 Camcorder” training DVD is the quickest way to learn both the fundamentals and advanced features of this amazing Super-35 camcorder and it's state-of-the-art tapeless XDCAM EX 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 450 man-hours to research, write, plan, shoot, and edit this 4-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 session as you can get without actually hiring Doug Jensen for personal instruction. How much is your time worth? For a small investment you get to tap into a wealth of knowledge that would normally take many days for you to acquire on your own . . . assuming that you ever discovered some of the tips and functions covered in this training DVD.

"Mastering the Sony PMW-F3 Camcorder” includes tutorials, step-by-step examples, and detailed instructions covering the most important aspects of camera setup, menus, shooting techniques, choosing a video format, clip naming, file management, clip importing, Picture Profiles, time-code, programming the assign buttons, customizing the viewfinder display, freeze-mix, white balance, multi-matrix, proper use of Zebras, jam-syncing, focus assist functions, shutter speed, gain, time-lapse, slow-motion, camera data files, lens options including Zeiss Compact Primes, Schneider Cine-Xenars, Sony PL lenses, Nikon SLR lenses, best practices for importing and archiving footage, and much more.

This DVD is a completely independent production with no sponsorship, input, or approval from Sony. It delivers unbiased information and professional advice that can’t be found in the official PMW-F3's operation manual.

This workshop is designed to help anyone, from a novice to an experienced ENG/EFP shooter, get the best results from their PMW-F3. The DVD provides real-world examples and suggested techniques that are simple to put into practice. All Vortex Media training DVDs are carefully researched, planned, and written to teach you what's important -- without getting bogged down in jargon or unnecessary technical details.

This DVD will pay for itself many times over by saving you hours of time learning the PMW-F3
on your own.
