Book Description

The "Hands On" Manual for Cinematographers contains a wealth of information, theory, diagrams and tables on all aspects of cinematography. Widely recognised as the "Cinematographer's Bible" the book is organised in a unique manner for easy reference on location, and remains an essential component of the cameraman's box.


Everything you need to know about cinematography can be found in this book - from camera choice, maintenance and threading diagrams; to electricity on location, equipment checklists, film stock, lenses, light and colour. Of particular use will be the mathematics, formulae, look up tables and step by step examples used for everything from imperial/metric conversions to electricity, exposure, film length, running times, lights and optics. Sections on special effects and utilities are also included as well as a list of useful websites.

David Samuelson is a well known and respected cameraman who has been instrumental in fostering award winning new technical innovations. He is a technical consultant, lecturer and author of three other leading publications for Focal Press: The Panaflex User's Manual 2ED, Motion Picture Camera and Lighting Equipment and Motion Picture Camera Techniques.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for every ditty bag 7 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Not so much a 'book' but an essential piece of kit for anyone working with motion picture cameras. Samuelson - a veteran cinematographer and 'guru' of everything cinematic - has managed to cover the whole range of essential information, from threading diagrams to HMI shutter settings, to special effects cinematography. As a book, well fourty quid may be a tad expensive, as a piece of equipment that could make sure you get invited back for the next shoot, it's peanuts!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exellent 2 Aug. 2003
By Agustin A Barrutia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This and the AC manual are the two bibles that any cinematographer should have in hand when shooting.
It is a comprehensive guide with technical facts, and might be a little to complex for begginers and amateurs.
It is not edited to be readen as a starting/basics book for students, but as a book to be consulted by professionals or starting DPs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good Book 25 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I read this book back in film school, it is full of good information and useful tips. For someone who understands film and photography this is a great book. For those who are learning the book is good but may be confusing in some places. That is why I gave it 3 stars.
5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Reference Manual. 11 Mar. 2005
By Eddie Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the book I ran to when I sent back my 8th edition ASC manual. I refer to this book everyday and always have it with me when shooting. Very well laid out and full of useful information. An indispensable tool for cinematographers, and unlike the ASC manual, has NO advertising in it.
