    Vortex Media EX3DVD reviews

    DVD: Mastering the Sony PMW-EX3 Camcorder is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A 'must have' for the EX3 user Even if you are the type to pour over the manual, this is an essential tool for any EX3 owner. It covers much more detail than the manual in a easy to follow video tutorial. I learned many features and operational aspects that just were not covered clearly in the manual. Doug Jensen does an excellent job exploring the full potential of this incredible camera step by step. I keep this DVD with me on shoots for reference, it's that useful. (I don't take the manual, if that tells you anything) Well worth the investment, it will save you lots of time. Spend your time shooting, not flipping back and forth in a confusing manual.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and clear Before buying this video I thought oh, its too expensive, Ill just read the manual, but finally ended up buying it and I was very glad I did. It has a lot of handy tips NOT contained in the manual, and frankly, having someone talk to you while showing you in extreme close up all the parts and how everything works is much more entertaining than a mini size font boring manual. Its there if you need more detail, but the video really gets you going fast with a lot more than the basics. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tutorial I think this is a great product for people who are new to professional cameras. The instructions and details help straighten out the learning curve a bit. Very helpful and insightful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic video This is my second video by Doug Jensen/Vortex and I can't say enough about how thorough the cameras are covered. Vortex videos are a must for someone using a new camera, or even thinking about purchasing one. You will know what the camera can and cannot do and what will work best in your situation. The video's detail will assist both the novice and pro setting up their camera and going into their shoot confidently with new gear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jump-start I found this video guide to be a great jump-start for the PMW-EX3. Doug Jensen does a very nice job at succinctly explaining all of the functions of the EX3 - which is not insignificant. I have to say that this DVD guide saved me many hours of playing & experimenting. That's not to say I won't be spening loads of time playing and experimenting but it will be will additional knowledge. Great job, Doug!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complete Review of the EX3 This is the second Vortex video that I have purchased. Both are complete in their review of all the camera settings, buttons, knobs, etc. If you are new to complex camera's and don't want to hack your way through the 100 or so menu items then the Vortex video will give you an organized informative tour. At the end of the video you should have a starting point for all of your camera settings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EX3 users, this is a MUST have! I cannot say enough about this wonderful DVD set. Spend 3 hours with these, and you'll be an informed expert on the Sony EX3. Tells you all the stuff you want, and need to know about the camera, from a very unbiased professional shooter. Great tips, and watch the paint menus portion, for a great place to start with Pic Profiles. Those alone, are worth the price of this set!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from essential training The information are very usefull for begginer, the guy know is stuff. You can find all the information on the net for free but this DVD provide everything needed to use the camera even if you are a pro, no need to explain White balance or video transfert but this camera have so many option that even a pro could learn something from this DVD.
