In Digital Cinematography: Fundamentals, Tools, Techniques, and Workflows from Focal Press, author David Stump discusses how the modern cinematographer is equal parts artist, technician, and business-person and needs to master the arts of lighting, composition, framing and other aesthetic considerations. The cinematographer must be well versed with the technology of digital cameras, recorders, and workflows, and must know how to choose the right tools (within their budget) to get the job done. This book focuses primarily on the tools and technology of the trade, looking at how digital cameras work, the ramifications of choosing one camera versus another, and how those choices help creative cinematographers to tell a story.
This book empowers you to both correctly choose the right camera and workflow for your project from today's incredibly varied options, as well as understand the ins and outs of implementing those options. The author sheds a light on the confusing advantages and disadvantages of shooting theatrical features using digital technology and what it can or can't do.Topics covered include:

Detailed coverage of Arriflex, Blackmagic, Canon, Ikonoskop, Panasonic, Panavision, Phantom, Red, Silicon Imaging, Sony, and Weisscam digital motion picture cameras
Coverage of a wide variety of lenses, including Angenieux, Canon, Cooke, Fujinon, Hawk, Leica, Panavision, Red, Schneider, Sony, UniqOptics, Vantage, and Zeiss
Coverage of recorders, displays, and look management tools
Exposure theory tips - learn how to correctly expose digital cameras
Focusing tips - learn how to focus digital cameras correctly
Checklists to help design digital workflows
Practical tips on preparation - prepare for shooting a digital motion picture like a professional
