The HMC Book Spiral-bound – 2010
|New from||Used from|
The comprehensive, detailed, and ultimate reference guide for Panasonic's HMC150, HMC80 and HMC40 camcorders is now shipping: "The HMC Book" (with an included CD-ROM). This book and CD package presents a comprehensive examination of the cameras and all their features, settings, and modes, the tapeless workflow, working with AVCHD footage, and tutorials on some of the most common situations users find themselves facing. The book de-mystifies what all the features of the cameras actually do, as well as explaining when and why you'd want to use each setting for the best results. An extensive section of tutorials and essays teach a range of subjects from the simple to the advanced, including explanations on how to get the shallow depth-of-field look, how to control strobing and shoot 24P (or 25P) for the best results, and how to use the waveform monitor and vectorscope. The book is jam-packed with photos and screenshots throughout its 256 full-color, high-quality glossy pages. Also included is a CD-ROM which contains all the scene file explanation pictures and sample scene file photographs in uncompressed format, as well as 24 SCENE FILES that you can copy to an SD card and upload into your HMC150-series camera. Scene Files for 60Hz (USA) and 50Hz (Europe and Asia/Pacific) are included. This book expands on and supplants the earlier The HMC150 Book, by adding over 40 pages of coverage of the HMC40 and HMC80, and a new Frequently Asked Questions section that covers common workflow and operational issues, as well as completely rewritten tutorials for basic camcorder operations such as Focusing, White Balance, Exposure, and other sections that help new users (or those new to professional camcorders) to get the most from their new camera.

I was unable to find a copy in the UK, but it arrived within the expected time from the USA and the cost including shipping was less than the UK cover price. Not just a reference book. Beautifully illustrated, it is a must read and I have been reading it cover to cover.
