Presenter: Mike Raycroft
Venue: 77 Wells Street, London, W1T 3QJ
Continuing with the success of the BUFVC Shooting with HDV workshop, Mike
Raycroft is introducing Sonyıs exciting new V1 camera alongside the Z1 HDV
The V1 camera uses three CMOS sensors rather than the CCDs used by the Z1.
It also has a progressive scan shooting mode with native HDV 1080p and
1080i. The V1 is targeted at the independent low-budget filmmaker.
During this one-day workshop Mike will take a non-technical approach to
shooting HDV1080 with both the Z1 and V1 cameras. Delegates will be given
the opportunity to road test both camera in a series of hands on practical
exercises, including sessions on working with low light and shooting video
with a film look.
* Understand the implications of shooting with high definition formats.
* Shoot their own high definition footage as part of a two person
* Learn about MPEG2 compression and GOP encoding.
* Understand down conversion from High to Standard definition.
* Review editing software programmes with HDV capability
All the operational features of the camera will be explained and delegates
will have the opportunity to have their queries answered.
