As we are starting to work with the cameras, we had to have an introduction to them. We learnt how to film with them, connect them to the tripod and playback what we have filmed.
When attaching the camera to the tripod, you have to make sure that all legs are equal length so that he tripod is stable and doesn't fall over whilst the camera is attached. Once the camera is on and tightened into position you can start to film.
- Never move the tripod with the camera attached, it may get damaged.
- DO NOT use the camera whilst it is raining. Getting the camera wet will cause expensive damage. If there us a vital scene that the setting of a rainstorm is needed, be sure to use a large umbrella to unsure the camera is completely covered.
