The EX1 Field Guide & Training DVD Bundle from Vortex Media is a combo set of media that will give you all the information that, perhaps, the original instruction manual left out. These two items comprise a more-than-comprehensive examination of the camera in terms of both what it has, its features, specifications and capabilities.

However, the set goes further by providing something you can toss in your gear bag and have at-the-ready whenever you're on assignment. After all, this camera contains many buttons, features and possibilities and often it is impossible to recall exactly how to use it. Having the field guide at your side will mean that you'll always be able to obtain the answers to relevant questions when you mean them.

The companion DVD can be viewed in the studio or home when you're off assignment. It gives you live images that will further explain the system in greater detail. The book is written in clear to understand language but the DVD compliments that with both a detailed overview as well as tips, tricks and techniques.

About the Author: Doug Jensen is a cameraman, producer, director, editor, and consultant with over 28 years of video production and post-production experience. He is also the owner of Vortex Media, which produces instructional videos, camcorder field guides, and innovative production tools for video production, television, and digital photography. As a member of Sony's Independent Certified Experts (I.C.E.) team he has taught high definition XDCAM classes for Sony at NAB and special events throughout the United States.

Doug owns several cameras, including a Sony PDW-F800, Sony PMW-EX3, Sony PMW-EX1, Sony F350 XDCAM HD, Sony HVR-Z7U, Sony HVR-Z1U, and an Ikegami HL59 Betacam.

  • Vortex Media DVD: Mastering the Sony PMW-EX1 & EX1R: A Complete Guide to the Camcorder & the XDCAM EX Workflow

    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.

Jensen combines his extensive production experience with his teaching skills to bring a wide-ranging, real-world perspective to his independent DVD workshops.
