In lesson, we learnt how to handle and use the camera that we will be using to create our film opening. We also learnt about some of the safety hazards and other general rules when filming.
· Do not touch the camera lens as fingerprints will show on our recorded footage. We also have to close the lens cover when the camera is not in use, to protect the lens from dust etc.
· Do not get the camera wet
· Don’t film in dangerous locations, where someone’s safety is at risk
· Always return the camera on time as there are other people that will need to film as well.
We learnt how to operate the camera and what the functions of the different buttons were such as Zoom, Focus and Gain which is used to control the intensity of light exposure.
