I found this book helpful in getting better shots out of my 3D camera. It is very basic and goes through the history of 3D and pointers for acquiring good 3D photos and movies. The only point that I though the book was weak about is it's coverage of 3D video editing, which I really believe needs more attention as it is an important part of the 3D video production workflow. If you are new to 3D photography/videography though this is a good starting point.

I was initially drawn to this book for the simple reason that I thought it might assist me in making an intelligent choice in my purchase of a 3D camera. These little devices are frightfully expensive, and, when comparing one to another, often quite confusing. Well, "Shoot 3D Video Like a Pro" addressed my concerns most efficiently, and, furthermore, offered me a plethora of other knowledge.... a succinct who, what, where, when, why and how of three-dimensional visual optics, from 300 BC to present.

The book walks the reader through every phase of planning and purchasing a 3D camera, choosing the right unit, setting up and utilizing your 3D camera to achieve optimum results. Including lighting, sound, and editing. There are even chapters that offer assistance in planning projects and going into the business of 3D movie making. For a book that contains a mere 134 pages, it is a treasure trove of information.

If you are not wanting to purchase a shelf full of specialty volumes, which may take six months to a year to consume, then you should pick up a copy of this thoroughly comprehensive and delightfully compendious book, read it two or three times over, and keep it handy for thumbing. Afterwards, when you pick up a 3D camera you'll actually feel like you know what your doing.
You will even be able to comprehend the technical terminology, as Mr. Kaminsky also included a chapter on "Jargon and lingo" that covers 3MOS to Z Axis. A great all inclusive effort that is well worth the price.

I was frustrated after trying to capture 3d videos using a 3d camcorder, so much so that I went ahead and sought help in a book.
This book definitely taught me a lot about the subject.

First off, it's written by a guy who shoots films for a living and while he does pepper some technical details here and there, the book is mostly all about what you need to know to get the job done.

Who knew you need to think differently about capturing video if it's in 2d or 3d? Well that's why I'm guessing most of us get crappy 3d videos and that's one of the major things I learnt from this book.

It also has quick tips and pointers to make you shoot good 3d videos almost immediately.

It's not the most technically comprehensive book out there on the subject, but it worked fine for me. It doesn't take long to read, and with those quick tips even I got great 3d videos of our latest family get together :)

There's also a terrific section on how best to shoot really important events such as weddings, vacations etc.

I wasn't too keen on the 'how to make money shooting 3d videos' section, but I guess if you're into that it can come in handy. What is impressive is the section where the author interviews professional 3d film makers that offer some of their insights.

All in all, the book gave me a boost in my 3d shooting abilities almost instantly, and was well worth it for me.

Kaminsky's book has a 'thinness' in its content. There's not much there; certainly not enough to justify the title. Some of the very basic info included (e.g., 'How do we see in 3D?') could be easily learned from Wikipedia. I suppose some people will find it helpful but for me it was short on the "Tips, Tricks and Secrets" advertised on the cover.
For a better introduction (and that's all this book really is) I recommend reading a good 2D videography tutorial (e.g., How to Shoot Video that Doesn't Suck by Steve Stockman), looking at some of the myriad web tutorials on 3D photography (both still and video), and then taking your 3D camcorder out and shooting lots and lots of footage. No one ever shot any video 'like a pro' without becoming familiar with their equipment.
