Description - Digital Video Pocket Guide by Derrick Story

The "Digital Video Pocket Guide" is concise, easy to use, and is overflowing with the techniques you'll need to know to create great movies. This book is organized into three chapters: "What Is It?", "How Does It Work?", and "How Do I...Tips, Tricks, and Techniques". Its compact size, organization, and detailed illustrations make it easy to find the information you need. In the first chapter, "What Is It?", you're introduced to the ins and outs of your DV camcorder. Author Derrick Story builds the solid foundation that helps you better understand the camera you have now, and will prove invaluable when shopping for your next camcorder. For instance, what is a tally lamp, and do you need one? What is the difference between the optical and digital zoom? Should you spend the extra money for a 3-CCD chip? Chapter two puts the tools in action. It maps out, step by step, a sure-fire approach to successful movie making - including home videos, tutorials, and even short features. This chapter takes the worry out of organizing and lets you focus on creativity. Next, you'll accelerate your prowess by learning the techniques of video experts. Among the tips and tricks featured in chapter three are how the pros shoot actionvideo, arrange lighting for an interview, and capture clean audio. Finally, the Appendix is packed with well-organized tables and charts on many topics and includes: a colour temperature chart, a guide to color correction gels, a table of everyday lux ratings, a cable connector guide and a reference for microphone patterns.
