Mastering HD Video with Your DSLR

243 pages

Many of the newest DSLRs include HD video capability, and while the interest from the photography community was initially cool, we have seen a recent shift. Photographers are beginning to explore the video capabilities of their cameras and want to learn about the art and craft of creating high quality video.

This book takes photographers through video concepts, video features of their DSLRs, equipment needed to shoot video, to understanding the restrictions, problems, and pitfalls of shooting video with a DSLR. Learn how to capture and edit video footage, to achieve the unique "motion picture look" and effects not possible with standard digital video equipment. Examples, video clips, and other useful materials are on the DVD included with the book.

Photographers who are ready to give HD video a serious try, as well as videographers interested in exploring the possibilities of DSLRs for their work will find this book an indispensable source of technical know-how and inspiration.
