Vortex Media's Field Guides ensure that the critical information you need about your camcorder will always be at your fingertips.These are the missing manuals that should have come with your camera. Even if you already have some experience with XDCAM, these guides are indispensable -- but they are especially important for professional shooters who are migrating from Betacam straight to XDCAM. We guarantee that Vortex Media's Field Guides will help make you a better DP, a better operator, and be more creative.
The PDW-700, F800, EX1, and EX3 are terrific cameras with dozens of new functions and literally hundreds of settings that can be difficult to understand or memorize. For the relatively small cost of a book, you instantly gain the vast in-depth knowledge that took somebody else several weeks to research, figure out, experiment with, and condense down to the essential facts - and then explain to you in a clear and concise manner. These field guides will pay for themselves over and over again in saved time, avoided mistakes, and by introducing you to new features you didn't know about or didn't fully understand. The bottom line is that they enable you to truly get your money's worth from your camera. At Vortex Media, our philosophy is that creating great images should be simple, straightforward, and not a chore.
These Field Guides are written from an operator's perspective to help you master your camera and maximize its performance. With up to 320 pages of essential information, you won't find a single important topic left out. Each book is packed with detailed explanations, tutorials, photographs, checklists, menu trees, parts diagrams, suggested settings, tips, tricks, and page after page of practical advice.
