Throughout the year, we offer a wide range of events to help film makers get their hands on the latest technology, learn a new skill and get ahead of the competition. Our events include new product launches, training workshops, Masterclasses from top DoP’s and interactive webinars.

All of these events have a practical bias, emphasising hands on learning from experts within the industry. Whether you are a complete novice or seasoned professional, we have events to suit all levels of skill and experience.


Thursday 20th May 2021
Join Alister Chapman live from Sony’s Pinewood office to understand the real world benefits of Sony’s Cinema Line products. Alister has used each of the Cinema Line cameras in the field, from the VENICE to the FX3 and will demonstrate the similarities in the image quality from each camera, discuss some of the technologies shared across all of them, such as Dual ISO, the same S-Log3 gamma and XAVC codec.
You will learn how to get the closest, near identical match between the cameras under differing lighting conditions so that you can mix the different cameras within the same production seamlessly. But Alister will use his experience of shooting with all 4 cameras to look at how the unique qualities and subtle differences between each camera within the Cinema Line may influence your choice of camera for different types of shoots and budgets.

Be part of the debate…
This will be an interactive session and your questions will be welcome at any time. All 4 of the cameras will be on hand and connected to the feed to help answer those questions, so register now to learn more.
