2.0 out of 5 stars Badly organized, rambling and repetitive. Oct. 12 2007
By Peter W. Fraser - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book hoping to get a solid outline of HD post techniques. Unfortunately the book is rambling and poorly organized. The introductory material is simple, repetitive and sometimes just plain wrong. The more advanced material is very cursory, and quite jumbled in its presentation. The author may well be a great video editor, but his command of the technical aspects of video formats and compression seems tenuous.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to HD Oct. 14 2008

This book is great for professional videographers like myself who need to learn more about the basics and intermediate aspects of HD. Its easy to read and follow without being dull or overly simplistic. Some color photos would've been nice. As well as some more specific details and recommendations to maintain image quality and archiving methods for tapeless work-flows. Otherwise well worth reading.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing and thin Aug. 25 2007
By RedRocker - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Looked forward to the book, but found its organization rambling, and its content offering little more than a cataloging of the hd formats. It's endorsement of HDV is troublesome, given the problems of using that codec in post. No mention of 2k or 4k, and scant mention of the nonlinear systems that handle HD. Sadly, it already feels out of date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to HD technology June 1 2007

Bought this book as a starting reference for HD technologies. It gave me a great start and will be put in a handy location for future references. Already lending it out to another HD newbie.
5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommend!!!! March 30 2008
By Todd Smaretsky - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Very informative but not excruciatingly exhaustive. Many of the random questions I had were answered clearly. I found the book also to be very inspiring; being a low budget filmmaker, it make me realize the dream is within reach, and that HD is not too far from my grasp. I was especially encouraged by the information he provided about HDV - being that I use a Canon XH A1.
Sincerely, Awesome book!! To the point, but extremely informative - it provides what you need without all the froth.
