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.
