Canon 6D Getting Started in Video
6d

Are you interested in shooting video with your DSLR, but not sure where to start? This course will get you up to speed quickly. Get instant access to this course now. This is a beginner level course, and it is prerequisite for more advanced courses to come. This course covers the camera in great detail (everything video related in the manual and more), but it does not cover items sold separately from the camera, editing, rendering and photography features.

The manual for the 6D has 404 pages, but unfortunately Canon's manuals are biased towards photography and leave a lot to be desired when it comes to video. This training course fills in those gaps. The true value of this course is saving you weeks if not months of time testing your camera to get the best results.

Who is the course for? People that have never owned a Canon DSLR before, or people that have had their camera for a while but never shot video. Or, this course is great for people who have not tested all the different settings. You will be able to see how all those settings affect your videos.

What if you own a new Canon 5D Mark III will this course apply to your camera? It does apply, however I would hold off on buying this course if you can wait for when I come out with that course.

Course running time: 4 hours 28 minutes

Level: Beginner

Covered/Not Covered

What is covered:

Only video related items.

How to set up your camera for video.

Basically everything in the manual that relates to video plus more info that the manual neglects to mention.

The Canon manuals can be very cookie cutter and are biased towards photography and do not cover video as well as they do with photography, in this course I will fill that void.

What is not covered:

Photography information such as exposure compensation, the flash unit, RAW image files, etc..

This course does not cover how to edit, render/export your files, this is mostly a prerequisite course for more advanced courses to come. This is for people that have never owned a DSLR before or are interested in shooting video.

I will not cover items sold separately from the camera. For example, while I will cover all the ways you can focus in movie mode, I am not going to cover items sold separately like a follow focus and how to use them for video.
