Students in the Field Camera Certification Course will be introduced to the Sony HXR-MC2000U or Panasonic AC90A digital video camera and peripherals. This class will emphasize proper field camera techniques. Students will learn how to operate both the automatic and manual controls of the Sony HXR-MC2000U or Pansonic AC90A camera, the principles of basic shot composition, natural lighting, and sound recording in the field. Students will shoot in the field on Saturday.

**Upon class completion participants take a written test and are ʻStudent Certifiedʻ allowing capability to check out camera once for solo shoot. Completion of a scheduled meeting with the class instructor to review footage and go over any issues encountered then enables full certification as ʻAkaku Field Camera Certifiedʻ with check out privileges.
