Has anyone checked these out?

I'm a relative newcomer to the Sony F3 and I am wondering if some of this material could be of use to me. Maybe the FS5 would share enough in common with the F3 to make it worthwhile for me to get the FS5 Guide? I do plan on hiring the FS7 so that too.

Is Jimmy Jib your real name?  I can't find any internet credits for an Australian editor named James Jib or Jimmy Jib...

The author is a well known Sony guy.. if you have an F3 I think the F5/55 guide might be better than the Fs5.. or just get onto google still seem to be quite a few people still using F3,s.. those guides will be quite specific to each camera I think..

Exposure on the F3 is a breeze. Just set your lightmeter to 800 ISO, or use the built-in spot meter to check various parts of the frame (when shooting slog - 32% is middle grey and 64% is white with the spot meter).

There are a few regular posters who apparently don't exist outside of this site...
