All students are advised to purchase an SD Cards for filming. Do Not book out any equipment unless you have an SD Card, we cannot supply them because they are not being returned and we do not have any left. You will also need to demonstrate that you are able to set-up the equipment and use it, prior to booking, see Mr Dodzo or Craig to book demonstration. All Equipment should be booked at least 2 weeks in advance or else you will not get it and it represents poor planning on your part.
