Vortex Media Z7DVD
Mastering the Sony HVR-Z7U and HVR-S270 DVD


"Mastering the Sony HVR-Z7U and HVR-S270" is the easiest way to learn both the fundamentals and advanced features of the Sony Z7U, Z5U, FX1000, and S270 camcorders. This 3-hour, 2-DVD workshop includes tutorials, step-by-step examples, and detailed instructions covering the most important aspects of camera setup, menus, shooting techniques, exposure, the Memory Recording Unit, picture profiles, time-code, assign buttons, shutter speed, special effects, color correction, camera profiles, digital photos, audio, lens options, focus marking, shot transitions, clip importing, white balance, and even how to choose a recording format.

Like all Vortex Media training DVDs, this workshop has been carefully researched, planned and scripted (not presented as "live" or ad lib). This DVD was produced by professionals with years of broadcast-level experience who have the knowledge to recognize what's important about the Z7U and how to teach it without getting bogged down in jargon or unnecessary technical details.

This is a completely independent production with no participation, sponsorship, input, or approval from Sony - so it delivers unbiased information and professional advice that can't be found in the owner's manual.
