When I bought my Sony PMW-F55 from Rule.com I knew it was going to be an amazing camera.

Quite possibly one of the first things learned about editing, whether in a class or on the job, is that “good” editing is invisible. The classical Hollywood style of editing doesn’t call attention to itself, because to do that would take the audience out of the story space and shift their focus onto the techniques used to make the film they’re watching.
