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.
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.
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.

I am new to shooting video and bought a pro series 3D camera. However I have read more valuable info just searching the internet than I got from this book.Published on October 1, 2013 by Ken
Helpful and while it may not teach much to those with experience in 3D, this is a good primer to get you thinking in terms of 3D projects.Published on January 15, 2013 by Frank Oz
