This is the first book that I've read that deals with trying to fully exploit the power and potential of video for the professional video director of photography. Too often, books like this tend to try to convince the reader that video is something to be avoided and that the operator should do his best to make the camera emulate film. Mr. Wheeler dispells that myth and helps to explain how to use a professional broadcast camcorder to make the video image the best that it can be.Was this review helpful?
