Capture stunning footage, simplify your color workflow, and unlock the full potential of your Sony camera — no tinkering required.
Bang for buck, Sony produces some of the best cameras on the market for filmmakers.
They’re at the cutting edge of sensor technology, and it shows.
When you work to the strengths of these cameras—nailing the proper settings, and processing the footage to make the color shine—the results are nothing short of magic.
There’s just one problem: getting the most out of your Sony camera isn’t intuitive...at all.
The menu systems are complex and overwhelming…
There are quirks that can ruin your images and turn your post workflow into a never-ending headache…
And if your footage wasn’t captured properly, you’ll be dealing with noise, banding, and rolling shutter on top of all the color issues.
That’s the paradox.
So much potential in these cameras, and so many potential headaches.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
You don’t have to be a slave to your camera’s quirks any longer.
Our friends over at 31Films have cracked the Sony Code after using these cameras extensively in their business.
So we asked them to pull back the curtain in this workshop, and share everything they know about harnessing the power of Sony cameras.
