    Cape Ann TV’s Lunch & Learn Wrap-up

Cape Ann TV’s most recent Lunch & Learn event “Choosing the Video Camera That’s Right for You!” presented by Barry Dennis, Professional Video Sales Consultant, Hunt’s Photo & Video, proved to be very fascinating and educational.

Barry showed off several new cameras and their capabilities. All the cameras had different sensor sizes, and different uses. He explained the differences between the cameras and talked about ideal situations for each.

The big topic of the afternoon was 4K vs. HD. Barry explained that 4K was possibly the next big revolution in cameras and broadcast. He showed us the quality difference between the two, using a large monitor. Then a discussion about the pro’s and con’s, workflows, price, and capabilities of shooting in 4K ensued. Then after a wonderful presentation, discussion, and Q&A we got an opportunity to handle some of the cameras he brought and ask more questions.

Cape Ann TV would like to thank Barry for the great presentation and everyone who attended.

Forget about what you read online or what your brother’s friend who is a filmmaker told you. Find out the REAL DEAL about cameras on the market.

Learn the differences between shooting video with a DSLR, consumer camcorder, professional camcorder, cine camera, mirrorless or compact system camera, and even cell phone cameras.
You will learn about sensor sizes, 4K vs. HD, lens options, frame rates, camera construction and hear about brands like Canon, Sony, Blackmagic, GoPro, Panasonic and more. Audio for video recording will also be discussed.

This is not a camera class, it’s more informational for the person trying to make sense of the world of videography.

You will learn about these cameras: Panasonic X920, HC-X1000, GH4, Sony A7s, FS7, PXW-X70, Canon C100, XF205, T6S, GoPro hero4, Blackmagic camera, a DJI Inspire 1 Drone w/ 4K camera, and Shogun recorder. Additionally Barry Dennis will discuss the capabilities of Rokinon lenses and a variety of wireless microphones.

Seating is limited for this event. Please email: rtober@capeanntv.org to reserve your seat.
