The Vortex Media DVD, Mastering the Sony PMW-F3 Camcorder is more than a video tutorial, it's a workshop. Designed to take you from 0 to 60 in no time flat, the DVD is useful for the beginner to the old pro alike. Over the course of 3 DVDs, for a total of 4 hours, Jensen's 21 chapters do more than quickly introduce you to the camera, they explain the ins and outs of the F3, demystifying the Sony camcorder quickly and easily. Instead of laboring over the user manual or filtering through endless forums, let Vortex Media do all the dirty work of learning of the F3. You'll be free to get right into using the camera and getting the most out of it, with the ability to pause and replay at will, until you've mastered every last detail.

Comments about Vortex Media DVD: Mastering the Sony PMW-F3 Camcorder:

This DVD is the most exhaustive course on how to use the PMW F3L. The only drawback is that it needs updating since it was produced in 2011. A lot of new things like S-Log firmware upgrade, new lens, recorders, etc. have come to fruition and need to be addressed when using the camera if your buying today. Overall, a great buy and a must have to master the basics of the camera.

Comments about Vortex Media DVD: Mastering the Sony PMW-F3 Camcorder:

This is my second DVD workshop from Vortex Media. The first one was for my EX3 which was excellent overall.

Doug Jensen is truly an amazing presenter and trainer. With his clear language, and very easy to follow instructions, I latterly mastered my Sony F3 within few hours!! I never even needed to read the camera's user manual. Everything you need to master the F3 is in this excellent DVD workshop.

Highly recommended.
