Cameras

Sony NX100 Tutorial

This is a great, but quite a long tutorial on how to use the Sony NX100 (the big camera). If you skip to about 15:30 he starts to actually talk about how to use the camera.  In case you miss it, you turn the camera on by pushing the slider

on the bottom corner of on the left side of the camera. You might also find it useful to check out the manual

GoPro Hero4 Silver

You might have heard of GoPro cameras as they have a few very specific uses which have made them iconic 'action cameras'. This short video gives a good introduction on these simple-to-use devices. Again for those who prefer reading, the manual can be found here (opens as pdf)

Video Editing

These are the three main video editing programs you will come across in the department. Video Editor (PC Only) and iMovie (Mac Only) are free programs and you will be able to download them at home depending on what laptop or computer you own. Premier Pro is a specialist program and is accessible on the departments Mac's which you can book out using the MPACT system.
