During the lesson, we learnt few guidelines on what to do and what not to do with the camera, and what would come across effectively in our thriller trailers, we were told to use, manual focus instead of auto focus. Reason being is that, with auto focus it could come out blurry. We were also told not to use zoom, on the camera as it has bad results, ends up being blurry on the big screens, so we were advised to use close up, and to pan with manual focus. We also were taught how to change settings to change to help record in badly lit rooms and areas, or change settings to lower the light intake so the footage doesn't come out white.
Also learnt how to deploy a tripod, and attach the the camera to it, so it's locked in place, also learn how to insert the battery and insert and eject the memory card from the camera slot.
