Camera 1 and 2 are the main cameras for TFH and are located in the center of the room. These Cameras are crucial to the success of the service in both worship and preaching.
PAN AND TILT LOCK
Pan and tilt for the cameras can be locked via the knobs on the swivel head for the camera.
Use the pan resistance button button to make side to side motion easier to handle. Increasing the resistance helps to smooth out "shaky" pans.
Zoom control for the camera is a pressure sensitive side-to-side rocker on the right pan-bar handle. There is also a speed control knob to control the overall speed.
Focus is controlled by the grip on the left pan-bar handle.
Camera 1/2 have tally lights, these lights are to indicate when these cameras are live.
The viewfinder by default displays the view from the camera. When the return video is pushed, it will show program out, or what's on screen. This helps to show what other cameras are live.
The LCD viewfinder has some built in tools. Press any of the "F" buttons on screen to pull up the menu. One of which is 'focus peaking' It will highlight the sharp edges red. This is extremely helpful to find focus fast and efficiently. To Enable push F4 and F4 again.
CLEAR-COM PTT (PUSH TO TALK)

Remember as a camera op to grab shots of the other singers as well. Tell the story of the whole stage and not just the person who’s on the mic.
Even if the BGVs are dark, grab shots from them.
During the sermon Camera 1 is the main shot. Cam 1 will follow the speaker at waist level.
Camera 2 will follow panning left and right. Then the TDs will call for a pull or push. Camera 2 will pull out from stage revealing the crowd, or push in to the pastor.
Cam 1 will primarily follow the speaker waste up.
Cam 2 during the sermon will focus on pushes and pulls revealing the crowd.
For sermon, Cam 2 should push and pull from Z30-Z10, keeping the top of the LED strips at the top of the frame.
