Hollywood productions to the most personal projects. From the differences
between CCD and CMOS image sensors, to color spaces, gamma and log
recording, to settings and options found on various current cameras, and
much more.

• Camera Systems: Get to know how one camera differs from another and be
able to compare models with the technical specs of the most widely HD, 2K
and 4K cameras. Find out about the various options for recording to
traditional videotape or new file based workflows.

• Lens Calculator: Different cameras use different sized image sensors.
This means that the focal length of a lens on one camera will have a
different field of view than on a different camera. Instead of comparing
apples to oranges, use the Lens Calculator to find a common denominator.
Enter in a digital camera or format and a focal length and see the
resulting focal length equivalent in the standardized 35mm format.

customized when renting cameras and camera accessories. Print, email,
save, and call-up previously saved equipment lists.

and always prepared for set. A thorough, checkable list of tasks to
perform at a camera rental house when prepping and checking out camera
equipment.
