Video Shooter - It's hard enough telling a story in words - and with a video camera there are other elements to deal with - time, space compression as well as others. This book takes a different approach to video instruction. Although geared towards the mid-level P2, XDCAM, and AVCHD camcorder, you'll still find lots of insight and guidance within its pages.
From an in-depth study of HD technology to an understanding of camera and lens choice, you'll learn the fundamentals - and then some - about camera placement, point-of-view, focal length and how the "triangle" plays an integral part in composition.
The author brings a certain humor as well as experience to these pages. Through anecdotes and tutorials, he shows you how to get the most from your camera.
