Good Book or Thread for Custom Presets & Technique??

The title says it all. I want to learn more about my presets and technique. I have an A1 and want to be more educated on color, grain, etc...

Any help would be deeply appreciated.

Sincerely,
Todd

Tips and Techniques

Hi Todd,

This link is to a UK site which has some excellent tips and tequniques. the initial link , which is a "Guide to Shooting", contains info about "Camera Stuff"

The "Camera Workbook" link at the bottom of that page, although not including the A1, also provides "must know" info about setting up the camera before shooting (white balance, exposure, focus, etc.), most if not all of which should also be applied when using the A1

I strongly recommend that if like me you are new to video as well as the A1, you read through all of the various camera workbooks as some contain more tips and technicques than others.

Well worth taking the time to look through this site.

Should read "excellent tips and techniques"
