Must Learn Varicam quickly
Posted 08 September 2006 - 12:19 PM
I was slated to shoot a short on the DVX100B that has been bumped up to HD (most likely Varicam or F900). Most of my filmmaking experience has been with film, which I feel very familiar with. I also have shot a bunch with the DVX100B. We shoot in 14 days. Is it realistic to expect to learn the basics of the Varicam or F900 in that time period? I am reading the ops manuals, and will be attending demos.

Study up and I'm sure you'll be fine. It's not that complicated of a camera if you are at all familiar with other types of cameras.
