Extensive and modern
I was a bit skeptical about this book being too out-of- date to discuss modern digital video and HD, but I was wrong. It covers, in great detail, all aspects of modern DV and HD including 24p, modern codecs, tape vs. solid- state recording vs. film, current editing workflows and software, etc. There are chapters covering how digital video camera technologies work, how film cameras work, film and video workflows, discussion of all film/video accessories including tripods, moving supports, lighting, extensive coverage of audio recording and mic info, also covers all aspects of traditional film (most of which I skipped). Overall this is one of the best and most informative books on video/film I've been able to find. Most are way too basic covering only consumer-level technologies and filming techniques (like filming a birthday party... boring).
