Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An encyclopedic manual for cinematographers. Lists addresses of equipment manufacturers, and award-winning and nominated films, and offers information on types of batteries, camera models and maintenance, electricity, exposure, film, filters, lenses, and the mathematics of cinematography. If one had deep pockets, this could be a pocket guide. No bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
