DSLR camera manufacturers are racing to see just how much technology they can jam into their latest breed of cameras, particularly in the growing area of video. As the feature sets explode, so does the level of complexity and the learning curve! That’s why we decided to create this introductory course to demystify DSLR video... and who better to teach it than Matt Vanacoro?!
Matt takes you on a journey starting with the history and evolution of DSLR video. He then examines how every aspect of these cameras, from their lenses and accessories to their professional settings and features, works best for video.
You learn all about video resolutions, size options, framerates and focus modes. Best of all, you see everything in action as Matt demonstrates how these important settings determine the outcome of your video.
This course continues with tutorials on aperture, shutter speed and white balance to help you set up the best possible shots. From there Matt dives deep into recording audio. This is one of his specialties, so you're in for some deep audio knowledge that will assure that your audio captures will be the best that they can be.
The concluding tutorials in this massive 35-tutorial course dive deep into timing issues, sync points, SMPTE timecode and video post production! So get ready to finally understand how your insanely powerful DSLR camera really works with video!

good overview on how to record with dslr. But I am missing more examples of footage or different settings. also some recommendations on lenses or mics would be nice. An deeper explanation on how to use which setting to achieve the different looks with iso, exposure etc.
looking forward to the next tutorial for lighting.

I've used my daughter's Nikon DSLR for shooting video a couple of times and have suffered from the sheer weight of options available, although the results were good. After following this course, I now know what choices to make and some of the pitfalls to avoid. Matt is an agreeable presenter whose experience in the field comes through in every lesson clip. I will be reviewing the notes I've taken and won't hesitate to go back and watch some lessons again once I've done some practical work.

Another informative and entertaining tutorial, I was however hoping for a bit more depth in the topics covered (lot of topics not much depth). But really whet's the brainbuds to further study!
