Z5U/Z7U training DVD

Can anyone recommend a training DVD for the Z7 or Z5? I do have Doug Jensen's excellent "Mastering the... Z7U". Very good intro, but a little short on fine detail, e.g. Picture Profile. Is there anything else out there?
Thanks

I think that video is actually very well done. I learned a lot, saved a bunch of time getting up to speed. Don't know of any others though.

Re: Z5U/Z7U training DVD

David, did you come up with any other instructional materials pertaining to the Z5?

I dug my Vortex video out the other day and watched it again. I was surprised how many features I haven't used in a while and how helpful that video is.

BTW, is there a horizontal line marker for the Z5 LCD that can be enabled (to ensure straight horizons)? I haven't been able to find it if it exists.

Page 81. MARKER is in the DISPLAY SET menu.

Note that when MARKER in ON, no cam data goes out to external displays. This trips up many folks. Also, you cannot have MARKER on if you have DATE REC enabled.
