DSLR Video Tips: Technical Knowledge

Robbie Carman & Rich Harrington

About this course

Do you want to become more proficient with DSLR video? Knowing the technical side can make it easier to set up gear, be more creative, and get your shot right on the very first take. These tips provide answers to the most common questions videographers encounter when shooting with DSLR cameras. Learn how frame size and frame rate, aspect ratio, codecs, cropping and compression, and the "exposure triangle" (aperture, shutter speed, and ISO) affect the look of your footage.

Plus, get tips on effective data management and setting up multicamera shoots for more complex productions.
