Online Learning Resources for Videography


I am an writer/editor/producer/graphics guy looking to get a bit more of a handle on videography.

Can anyone recommend a good solid online resource to learn the ropes regarding video camera operation?

Obviously, I could Google it but thought this might save many hours of searching!



I don’t have an online resource, but I highly recommend Stu Maschwitz’s The DV Rebel’s Guide. I just finished it, and it’s one of the best I’ve read on the topic of digital video. If you decide to buy it, make sure you get the DVD with it. There is a supplemental chapter there called “The Camera” that is worth the price of the book all by itself.

Of course, I’m no master cinematographer, so take my opinion for what it’s worth, which is… about 50 bucks.

is great site


It isn’t fantastically detailed, but I have found very useful.


I bought both these sets - Very cool indeed.

They have hard copies and Download versions.
