Are you interested in shooting video with your Sony a7Sii, but not sure where to start? This course will get you up to speed quickly. Get instant access and start watching now.
This is a beginner level course and advanced too, about 5 hours is at a beginner level, however the 1.5 hour chapter on Slog2/Slog3 is very advanced. If you are a beginner I would suggest skipping the Slog chapter until you have used the camera for about 6 months and then return to watch the Slog chapter. This course covers the camera in great detail (everything video related in the manual and more), but it does not cover items sold separately from the camera, editing, rendering and photography features.
About 40 minutes of this course is done by Matt Scott who color grades some of my slog footage, you will learn a lot from Matt (I know I have). I will warn you that Matt does swear in his tutorial section (he is very passionate when he grades footage).
Follow along as I start fresh and reset all the menus for video shooting. The menus can be very confusing when it comes to focus modes, codecs, compression, frame rates, I step you through each one and demo how they work.
Sony's owner's manuals are biased towards photography and leave a lot empty gaps when it comes to shooting video. This training course fills in those gaps and a lot more. The true value of this course is saving you weeks if not months of time testing your camera to get the best results.
Who is this online training course for? People that have never owned a Sony mirrorless camera before, or people that have had their camera for a while but never shot video. Or, this course is great for people who have not tested all the different settings, or struggling to get a good image from Slog.
What if you own an older Sony a7S, will this course apply to your camera? Since the a7S does not have modes like Slog3 and renders colors different, I would recommend NOT buying the course.
I cover all the menu items thoroughly however I do move quickly through the wireless and app menu tabs so I can spend more time in the slog chapter.
This course is based in the a7Sii 2.00 firmware update which is almost identical to the most recent.
Course running time: 6 hours 26 minutes
