Doug's other products are good, but I think he's really nailed it with the F3 guide.

Re: Preview of Vortex Media's PMW-F3 Training DVD

Just ordered it too. I know many of the basics (as demonstated in the sample WB chapter), but it's always good to refresh, and it's good to get tips and advice from a source such as Doug. Looking forward to getting it.

Re: Preview of Vortex Media's PMW-F3 Training DVD

Good question.
Right now I do intend on doing something later this summer, but there are several factors that may change my mind. We''l have to see how it plays out. Thanks for asking.

Re: Preview of Vortex Media's PMW-F3 Training DVD

Thanks Doug, I received my DVD today and enjoyed it, I learned a lot today, it was really good information and a great presentation. I would have preferred to have learned more about the feature settings in the Picture Profile section and less on the EX FCP workflow as most of us know the tapeless workflow already.
Great work by Vortex Media.

Re: Preview of Vortex Media's PMW-F3 Training DVD

Hi MIchael,

Thanks for the feedback, it is very helpful.
Even at four hours long, it is always a challenge choosing what topics to cover, and how much time to spend on each topic for a camera that appeals to such a wide range of users. For every person who says they wanted more about A and less about B, there's going to be someone else who says he wanted more info about B and didn't care about A. It's a fine line to walk sometimes. Anyway, I'm not making excuses, just explaining why things are they way they are. Your feedback does help me gauge whether I got it right or not. Thanks!

Re: Preview of Vortex Media's PMW-F3 Training DVD

Doug,
Just got the disks and went straight to the Lens section. Terrific work. You really laid it out for many of us who are in the middle of deciding what the F3 can be lensed with. Im hoping the 11-18 sony vari zoom will be available soon, meantime I ordered the Nikon 17-35 2.8 as a stand in as well as the Tonika 11-16 2.8.
In a few weeks I'll sell my Zeiss ZF kit (21,28,50,85,100) along with the above lens and go with a set of the Zeiss CP.2's and the Sony 11-18. I'll keep my Nikon 80-200 2.8 and the MTS adapter. Great Zoom.
Any interested parties please e mail me off list. xdhd@mac.com
