Adorama Conference Presentations

Camera Quick-Start Workshop » The Sony PMW-200 – 60 min
Sony's new PMW-200 Professional Camcorder continues the tradition set with the PMW-EX1 but adds some killer new features. This new 1/2" Full HD sensor camera records broadcast quality at 50Mbps in a 4:2:2 color space. The camera also includes improved low-light performance and a new lens. In this session Adorama will go over the key features of the PMW-200 camera system and discuss its application in real world production environments.

Camera Quick-Start Workshop » The Sony NEX-EA50UH – 60 min
With large sensor camera systems all the rage nowadays, there has yet to be an event/ENG style camcorder that not only sports a large sensor (for selective focus and great low light capabilities), but also has features such as auto focus and a built-in zoom rocker. That is until now. The Sony NEX-EA50UH is an affordable camcorder that includes features many shooters have been looking for in a large sensor camera system. In this session presenters will look at the camera's many features and discuss and demonstrate how the camera can be used in today's varied production environments.

Lighting & Shooting Interviews – 90 min
How do you make the right choices about camera placement and lighting when shooting interviews? And, how do you do that consistently? This session will focus on best practices when lighting and shooting interviews. Adorama will discuss and demonstrate certain "rules" or "agreements" that can be followed to help you consistently shoot great looking, great sounding and natural interviews. It will also include live demonstrations of various equipment and set-ups.

Camera Quick-Start Workshop » Canon EOS C100 & C300 – 75 min
Both Canon's new EOS C100 and the EOS C300 are part of a new breed of large sensor Digital Cinema Cameras. Small, modular and lightweight, the cameras were designed to allow videographers and DPs to focus on acquiring high quality, full HD content for a variety of productions (events, industrials, documentaries, green screen shoots, etc.).
