  • By Sara on August 21, 2003

    I bought this book because the titles of each section made the book seem worth while. Each time I read a section I was disappointed in the content. Not in-depth enough and not enough explanation. Each section that was explained used new jargon that hadn't been explained previously.While the book may be somewhat of a good reference for someone who already knows about betacam camerawork, it seems to be a waste of time for one trying to actually learn the material.

    A fine reference manual from Focal Press. Diagrams are sharp and the text information is broken into digestible parts that go down smooth. Various tips and tricks help mend those tiny flaws that keep so much camera work looking so amateur.One word of warning is that this manual may not be for those with no background in video. While easy to understand, I might suggest a primer, even if just to learn basic terms. This book starts with a basic assumption of a basic understanding.Very highly recommended, especially for those who seek professional camera employment

    This book is more for the person who already knows the material that will be contained in the book. Each time I was excited to read a section, I was disappointed in its content. Don't get this book if you're looking for more of an explanation rather than dictionary definition.
