Camcorder Business helped me take my hobby of videography into my own business. It very clearly explain alot of things I was not aware of, such as setting up a business and dealing with clients. The author's writing was very clear and easy to follow, even with technical and business information, which I was not so familiar with. Some of the information about equipment is now somewhat outdated, but that is understandable for this type of book. I would strongly recommend this book as the first step for anyone who needs an overview of getting into this business.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book to get some possible ideas for raising money for my classroom through video production. While this book contains some useful material and ideas, I wish the authors hadn't spent the first five chapters on video production and camera techniques and selections. Anyone considering a business in videography is likely to be familiar with material in those chapters. Instead, the authors could have expanded the business aspect of the book, providing more insight on how to handle various events ( e.g. weddings, parties, company training videos.) They also could have include pictures of various events and how they were shot using a video camera. It's sad to read about visual media that doesn't itself include pictures or even a CD. Lastly, the book is poorly written. It's full of simple declarative sentences, which basically means you can read past the first few sentences of each paragraph and still get the jest of what's being said. Other than that, this book does have some pointers about business contracts, sample ideas for making money using your cam, and some basic insight about editing, which by now some of it is outdated, considering the new editing technology available. So only buy this book if you know nothing about setting up a camcorder business.

I really loved this book. It answered many of my questions for starting a business, getting customers, and shooting special events such as weddings. Very informative and easy to understand! I would recommend it.
