This is definately not a Digi-for-dummies book, expecting the reader to be working as a broadcast professional or at least have a basic knowledge of camerawork, but it takes you deep into the digital video world explaining terms and techniques which would otherwise cost a lot time, money and embarassment to learn. Even if you don't get the chance to work with top-end equipment you'll definately learn a lot. A superb book worth spending time reading carefully. Paul Wheeler is a teacher who can! and now, so can you!

Format: Paperback
A great book for any cameraperson (or assistant) wanting to make full use of Digital Betacam. Paul Wheeler tells you how he uses the medium and the procedures that he goes through on a production. Many of these can also be used on other Digital formats. It's one weak area is that of lenses and options available, together with the problems that particular lens models can give you when working on high end productions. It's not really for people just starting out and there are many books dealing with lighting etc.in much greater detail.

Format: Paperback
Useless book. I bought it for some of the techniques but all it tells you to do is use the Sony menu with no suggestions as to how to do it for other cameras by using filters, lights, etc. I would rate it no stars. Do not waste your money.
