1. ALGORITHMIC EXPERIMENT
In groups of 4 (or 3).
a) Research the functions pertaining to the camera you have been assigned. Use both the manual and the camera itself.
b) Develop a 5-minute list of 20 events that will involve:
- camera motion on the tripod (one person): vertical and horizontal pans, degrees and direction (left/right), pan speed / duration
- alteration of camera functions (two people): Focus, Zoom (and Digital Zoom), White Balance, Iris (Exposure), Shutter Speed
(one person to work with functions on the camera body, one to work with functions on the LCD touch screen)
c) In class next week: Perform this sequence of events in “real-time” with the use of a timer (a 4th person can function as time keeper).
