Panasonic DVX 200 Master Class with Bernie Mitchell

Join Bernie Mitchell, Pro Video Evangelist and President of Silver Platter Productions, for a master class with the Panasonic DVX200.

Bernie will share his in-depth knowledge of the DVX200, the first in a new generation of large-sensor, multi-format professional camcorders capable of capturing 4K/UHD, HD and SD. Designed as a large-format camera system, the DVX200 provides that all-important aesthetic of shallow depth of field/selective focus, but with an integrated 13X zoom for easy control over image framing as well as the ability to track your subject even in fast action. This large-format 4/3” camcorder offers exceptional image quality in all modes, as well as unique workflow options — including a dual codec workflow found in the VariCam 35. Whether for cinematic or television production, sports, news acquisition or event acquisition, the DVX200 is a workhorse, offering the perfect blend of image quality, convenience and versatility.

*10am-2pm* This is an extended Learning Lab/Master Class with Lunch!

This event is FREE, but seating is limited.
