    Day 1 Program Details:



    Why did they put video on your DSLR?



    How did a still photography camera become a player in the video world?  Why is DSLR video better and where does it fail?



    Does sensor size matter?



    What is the difference between all of the DSLR sensor sizes?  What is a full frame and an APS-C?  What resolution am I recording with video?



    The Limitations.



    It looks easy but shooting video on a DSLR is not a point-and-shoot situation.  Find out what crop factor is.  Rolling shutter.  Moiré & Aliasing.  Shallow depth of field and when you want to avoid it.  Why DSLRs overheat.  Why does it only record for a short time and then stop?  Don't let the limitations scare you, instead, learn what they are so you can work with them.



    Menus & Terminology.



    How shooting stills is different from shooting video. We'll navigate around the camera body and discover that some missing features are still there but they have different names.  We'll also take a look at the menu system, clarify it and see how some DSLR menus are different even when they are from the same manufacturer.



    DSLRs and their lack of Video Camera Luxuries. 



    What happened to auto focus, zebras and neutral density filters?  What is shutter speed and ISO? 



    The Lens.



    The DSLR has a removable lens.  Now you have so many choices!  What is a prime lens?  Do you really have to focus yourself?  Can you use zoom lenses?  What makes one lens different from another?  Are third party lenses are best for my project?  Pre-production considerations for choosing the right lens for your project.  Try out the Zeiss Compact Prime CP.2 lenses in this workshop!



    The Monitor.



    Can you use the screen on the back of my camera or should you use an external monitor?  What if you can't afford an external monitor?  Try out a monitor solution from SmallHD that professionals use in this workshop.



    DSLR Audio.



    The myth about DSLR audio.  Is it really bad?  What is AGC?  How should your record your audio? See how a BeachTek adaptor can help.  Pre-production considerations for recording audio with your DSLR project.



    Media.



    Compact flash cards and SD cards.  Which ones to use and which ones to avoid.



    Post Production.



    You've shot all of your video and now you're ready for post, what do you need to know? Pictures styles & Exposure modes.  Do you have to transcode what you've shot?  Is there more than one solution for transcoding?  What workflow considerations do you need to make?  We'll take some video and load it into Final Cut Pro so you can see a workflow option.
