Format: Paperback
Jim Church has done it again. This concise reference to underwater video goes through the basics of using the camera to extensive help in setting up scenes, in-camera editing, and story production. The use of illustrations and demonstating photographs is most helpful. The book is very "technical" in areas where Jim feels that knowledge of the way the camera, lenses, and lighting interact will help the videographer improve his outcome. To my knowledge this is the best book available for the beginning to intermediate level underwater video photographer.

Maybe I'm too much of a novice, but this book (which is now in it's second edition) is a bit too technical for me. Certainly the techniques for video taping are helpful, and all is explained clearly with solid illustrations. But the sections on lenses, focal lengths, etc, gets to be a bit much.
Overall, I think for a beginner (and maybe more experienced) this is worth getting . . . I just wish some parts were a bit easier to comprehend.
