Learn to use mirrorless cameras properly to shoot high-quality video
You just got your first mirrorless camera…
…or you’re thinking of getting one soon?
But you don’t know how to use it to shoot quality videos and what specs really matter for your video style?
My mirrorless yourney start a few years ago with the Panasonic G85, which is still an impressive camera for the price. With this camera I shot my first 3000$ commercial and I also started my YouTube channel, which got 3,500,000+ views.
I love shooting mirrorless cameras as they are smaller, more lightweight and a cheaper than most DSLR & cinema cameras. So they perfectly fit to my shoots for companies in the travel industry.
Why should you learn from me?
My approach to mirrorless cameras is to figure out its limits. Because if you try to shoot videos beyond its limits, you will end up with bad looking footage and many additional hours editing it.
In this course, I start by teaching you about all the different camera specs that matter for video. After that, you learn how these specs affect different shooting styles. So you know exactly what to look for and how to get the most out of your camera. But it doesn’t end here. I also explain you exactly how to use your camera during the shoot. Parts of that are correct exposure, composition and camera movement.
That makes you confident behind your camera and will bring your video quality to the next level!
Who am I?
I’m Pascal, a world traveler and video creator, originally from Germany, currently living in Thailand.
When I started creating videos, it was quite hard as quality gear was very expensive or not existent.
Today the problem is no longer the gear, but the missing of practical knowledge. So I made it my mission to teach people how to create great looking videos with simple and affordable cameras and gear.

The course consists of 7 modules that ensure you learn everything step by step.
#1 Understanding Cameras
We’re stating with an intense but also important module. Here I explain to you every single camera spec in detail, that affects video. So alone after watching this module, you will be able to make better decisions regarding the settings of your camera and what camera to buy.
#3 Camera Recommendations
If you’re still in the process of choosing a camera, this module will help you with making a final decision. It can actually save you money on your next camera purchase.
#5 Pre-Shoot Settings
After a lot of theory we’re getting more practical in this module. We’re now using everything we learned in previous modules to set up your camera perfectly for the shoot.
#7 Perfect Lighting
One aspect of videography that is actually more important than the camera itself is good light. If you can control the light that hits the sensor of the camera, the camera itself becomes nearly irrelevant. So in this module you will learn how to set up lights and what to do if you have no control about it.
Even more important than the visual part of the video can oftentimes be the audio. Getting a good microphone is therefore often essential. In this part of the course, I teach you about the different types of microphones and when to use them. I also give you some general tips to improve your audio.
#2 Use Cases
Depending on the style of video you want to shoot and the environment, the specs from the first module affect your video footage more or less. So in this module, we’re talking about different scenarios and which specs are most important in which case.
#4 Lenses, Crop Factors & Adapters
Something that’s often overlooked when buying a camera is the lenses! That’s a big mistake as the choice of lenses is oftentimes more important as the camera itself. So in this module, I teach everything that has to do with your lens. So you understand what’s going on before light hits your sensor.
#6 Camera Usage during the Shoot
Just setting your camera up once before the shoot, unfortunately, doesn’t give us perfect results. To really maximize the quality of your footage, you have to make constant adjustments while shooting. In this module, you’ll learn exactly how to use your camera and make necessary adjustments when the scene changes.
#8 Composition & Camera Movement
Composition & Camera Movement oftentimes go along with each other. The composition of each shot is important to lead the attention of the viewer. Camera movement makes the shot more interesting to watch and can show different angles of a scene. In this module I teach you the most important aspects of composition and camera movement.
#10 Bringing it all together
In this module I give you a reminder of everything you learned and how to use all of this to produce the best quality video possible with your camera.

It saves you a lot of time

Become a professional filmmaker
I know it’s your dream to get paid for creating videos. From my experience, that’s absolutely realistic, even if your camera is considered “entry-level”. Much more important than your camera is to know how to use it properly. In this course we’re focusing on getting to know how to use it.
You learn to produce videos that people watch
You’ve likely already uploaded videos to YouTube but you’re disappointed because they don’t get many views. Well, the competition on YouTube is hard. So you have to deliver high-quality videos in order to get views. The course will help you with that.
The camera market is developing fast, luckily :-). With this course you don’t need to worry about that as I will keep it up to date if there are major changes or I recognize that members need to know more about a certain topic.

"My wife and I are dedicated to improving our skills and Pascal's courses have filled some critical gaps in our training. His modules dig deep where necessary, but the content is fun and interesting, in addition to being super easy to follow. Where other courses just scratch the surface across a broad range of modules, Pascal has effectively separated each discipline into affordable individual collections that truly make you a better creator. The content is worth 25x the cost. Can't wait to continue working our way through his library!"

Also the video on how to do speed ramping was very well explained! I had a lot of problems with speed ramping before. But now, I think I understand it better and I am able to use it in my next video."
