Video cameras come in all shapes, sizes, and prices. They all boast different options and feature sets. It would be impossible to cover the entire range of cameras on the market in this textbook. Rather, we will focus on understanding the core fundamentals of using any video camera to produce professional footage: sensor sizes, video file formats, lenses, exposure, composition, color management, audio, and process or sequence shooting. As a video producer, you must thoroughly understand these concepts to capture usable footage. With practice, you will be able to use these concepts to produce creative, compelling, and beautiful video.
