The Video Camera Operator's Handbook explains in easy-to-understand language the background to video operation. It describes the video system in photography terms, explaining its benefits, limitations and how these influence picture making.

Aimed at camera operators (those transferring from photography and film, as well as those already working in video and television) the book explains how camera operation, lighting and special effects are all affected by video operation. The system is described from its roots. The camera and picture display are considered together to describe how they interact - these form the backbone of video photography. Checkout procedures are described and there is a discussion on lenses, lighting and pictures where these are specific to video operation. In short, all the important basics are covered to ensure the operator fully understands the system.

Peter Hodges is a freelance trainer and consultant, operating his own Moving Image Masterclasses which teach the fundamentals of video from a visual base. He worked for many years at BBC Pebble Mill on such productions as Oliver Twist, The Rai.
