Another great resource for learning is the Sony Knowledge Portal.Tutorials on subjects such as bit depth and intra and inter frame compression to name but a few.
The olfi looks like a good 4k action cam.I’m getting one to try out for some b roll.There`s also a firmware update and full specs available on the olfi site.Staff seem to be very helpful when it come to advice and enquiries.
PROAV has reduced the price of the Sony CBKZ-X70FX 4K Upgrade License for the PXW-X70.It`s now under £250.A substantial drop from its original price.Time to buy I think!
Register for Sony`s online seminars covering all things camera and production related.Ask the experts.
We have been given three magic numbers that aid us in learning new habits,new systems and assimilating new information.The numbers are 20.40 and 66.These numbers represent the amount of times we need to repeat new systems and new learning practices for our neural pathways to connect and grow stronger.At that point the subject we are trying to learn has been learnt.This eventually leads to mastery of the subject or where the new habit and learning becomes almost automatic and second nature,like tying your shoe laces, or where the desired habit is fully formed.
If I understand this right what it implies is that if you are teaching something new to a student and after 6 ,8 or more attempts the student still doesn’t have it pinned down then perhaps, after such a short leaning period,it`s because they were never meant to learn it so quickly.Many more repetitions may be required before learning takes place.Of course there are subjects that are more easily learnt than others and the amount of repetitions needed may well be reduced because of easier learning material.
Other factors in learning also play a part such as retrieval,time and sleep.If we also consider the 10,000 hours of practice as outlined in Outliers, by Malcolm Gladwell we have a framework of practice to aim for in our chosen fields.

Those just starting out in the world of video production could try Lynda.com. It`s an amazing resource for training and pro advice. I`m surprised by how many people I speak to who don`t know what the site has to offer. I`ve completed 40 courses and just finished one on Location lighting.There are many other courses including wordPress.
I came across this interview from Rick Young discussing 4k.Despite it being a few years old I thought it raised some very interesting points. http://www.moviemachine.tv/video/comments-on-4k-philip-hodgetts/77230136/
“OMG we love it its amazing you captured so much .We are over the moon and cant wait to show it to my mum and dad.
I will be recommending you to everyone I know, we didnt even realise you were at our wedding as it wasnt intrusive filming, amazed with the results
thank you sooooo much x
Maxine and Chris”
Wedding was at Holiday Inn, Bolton.For the most part I was a single shooter but placed additional small cameras around the event to capture extra footage.My main camera was the Sony NEX EA 50M an aps-c sized sensor.Form factor a little bigger then I`d like but a good camera.
