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.

Readership: Primary filmakers, professionals, students on film and video courses. A wealth of handy reference information, tables, look up formulae, techniques and mathematics for cinematographers. Both North American and European principles fully described. Organised in fifteen sections in alphabetical order with more than 70 makers and models of 16mm, 35mm and 65mm cameras listed.
