Introduction to camera

In order to start using the cameras needed for our media coursework [Thrillers], we had to be taught how to use a professional video camera.  Key points of the Introduction were:

  • Learning where to insert the battery and memory cards.
  • Making sure the lens is in focus before filming.
  • When to record and when not to. e.g. not to film outside if it is raining without the camera being protected.
As well as learning to use the camera we also learned how to use the tri-pod. we learnt that:

  • the tripod legs must be evenly set so that it isn't wobbly
  • make sure the camera is safely secure on the tripod so that it doesn't fall off.
