Camera 101: Introduction to the camera.


Welcome to your camera system! In the 100 series of videos you will be taken through the basics of using your camera. In episode 101, Ryan introduces the basic components that makeup any camera system and explains their use and offers insight into their importance. He explores the importance of the camera body, lens selection, the follow focus, matte box, monitors, tripods, and light meters.

***An additional recommendation I have to you when making equipment purchases, is to buy high quality accessories. If you buy them at the start, you will only buy them once, and they will last longer then the camera you buy. A good follow focus, matte box, etc. will long out live whatever camera system you start out with.***
