This 40-minute video should be watched by PMW-EX1R owners before they view Vortex Media's 3-hour "Mastering the Sony PMW-EX1 Camcorder" training DVD. This video explains the NEW features that have been added to the EX1R since the training DVD was produced in 2007.
While retaining everything that was right about the original EX1, Sony has made a great camera even better. The EX1 and EX1R are so similar that there is no reason for Vortex Media to produce an entirely new 3-hour-long training DVD just for the EX1R. 99% of what is covered in the original EX1 training DVD also applies to the new EX1R.
Please view this video before watching Vortex Media's training DVD.
