Vortex Media DVD: Mastering the Sony PMW-EX1 and EX1R: A Complete Guide to the Camcorder and the XDCAM EX Workflow is the easiest way to learn both the fundamentals and advanced features of the Sony EX1/EX1R camcorders and their state-of-the-art tapeless workflow.

This 3-hour, 2-DVD workshop includes tutorials, step-by-step examples, and detailed instructions covering the most important aspects of camera setup, menus, shooting techniques, clip naming, file management, clip importing, picture profile settings, basic editing, and even archiving.

This DVD will pay for itself many times over by saving EX1/EX1R owners' hours of time learning on their own.

About the DVD Workshop: Mastering the Sony PMW-EX1/EX1R is a completely independent production with no participation, sponsorship, input, or approval from Sony - so it delivers unbiased information and professional advice that can't be found in the owner's manual.

This workshop is designed to help anyone, from a novice to an experienced ENG/EFP shooter, get the best results from their EX1/EX1R. The DVD provides real-world examples and suggested techniques that are simple to put into practice.

All Vortex Media training DVDs are carefully planned and written by professional cameramen who have the experience to know what's important to teach and how to teach it without getting bogged down in jargon or unnecessary technical details.

As a member of Sony's Independent Certified Experts (I.C.E.) team Jensen has taught high-definition classes at NAB for Sony. September 2007 Sony hired him to shoot test footage with a pre-production EX1 camcorder and to demonstrate the camera at special events. Jensen combines his extensive production experience with his teaching skills to bring a wide-ranging, real-world perspective to his independent DVD workshops.

In recent years he has directed, and co-produced Hands On HDV: A Complete Guide to the Z1U and FX1, Guide to Shooting with the Sony XDCAM HD F350/F330 Camcorders, and How to Setup, Light, & Shoot Great Looking Interviews.
