Filmmakers who use a Sony PXW-FS7 camcorder will benefit from Doug Jensen's Sony PXW-FS7 Field Guide from Vortex Media. This portable guide is loaded with essential information and step-by-step instructions that save you the trouble of figuring out things on your own or searching online for answers that are often wrong or incomplete.

With a no-nonsense style, Jensen demystifies the camera and explains its major functions, then gives you step-by-step guidance on its use, along with plenty of tips, warnings, and practical advice. His suggestions and advanced techniques will help you improve the quality of your footage and streamline your workflow for greater efficiency and productivity. No matter how well you think you know your camera, you're likely to discover new things and learn how to avoid pitfalls.

While not intended as an A to Z examination of the FS7's every aspect, this guide covers the camera's most important features and functions. Each chapter stands on its own, so you can learn a specific function or perform a new task as quickly as possible. The book also serves as a hard-copy companion to "Doug Jensen's Sony PXW-FS7 Master Class," a 6-hour instructional video from Vortex Media.
