I'm a relative novice to video production, so maybe more experienced videographers would find some of this stuff basic things they learned through experience. What I liked is the many examples of how videographers could use a flaw/mistake and turn it into an interesting cinematic effect. This book does a great job of training the eye when setting up shots.
Another thing. I'm not 100% sure, but I'm pretty sure the camera in the illustrations is the Sony HDV-HC1 (the same camera I own!).
If you are looking to improve your video skills or making a large student project, I would highly recommend this book. For the film student or professional these tips might be already covered in school. Many of the project require nothing special, just a standard video camera and basic editing software. This is a nice change from other books that almost require Adobe After Effects to produce a good special effect.
Overall I really enjoyed this book and will keep this in my video bag to spark any ideas I might need during filming.
I recomment this book, it's Excellent.
