Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Hundreds of thousands of people are dreaming of video fieldwork, but you are one step ahead of them because you are reading a book about how to do this well."
- Matt York, Editor/Publisher, Videomaker Magazine

"Excellent black-and-white photos and graphics clearly illustrate rights and wrongs like few books in the bookstore. The question is not What is in this book? but What is left out? We couldn't find anything missing for the single-camera, field shooter." - Morgan Paar, Videomaker Magazine
