SKILLS: Introduction to camera
We were given a tutorial on how to use the camera safely and appropriately. The media technician gave us a presentation on how to use the camera appropriately and gave us tips on how to use the camera effectively. The technician also introduced us to the different components the camera has such as the battery, the memory card and also how to mount and dismount the camera from a tripod. He also showed us how to adjust the focus settings on the camera and how to adjust the lens when filming when there is low/high lighting. We all had a go at trying out the camera as well as inserting and removing the different components. We had to be very careful because the technician couldn't stress enough how valuable and fragile the equipment is.
