Unlike the many books that cover DSLR cameras for photography, this book is written for filmmakers. For a fraction of the cost of standard HD video cameras and superior image quality, filmmakers can really achieve that cherished "film" look using these inexpensive cameras ($1500 to $4,000). Cinematic techniques are explained in great detail, including the major technical features of the cameras (choice of lenses, depth of field, video noise reduction, and more), but remains focused on the storytelling. The book discusses the different camera models (Canon 5D & 7D, Panasonic Lumix GH1, and more), but the book is not camera-model specific. Interviews and case studies with DSLR video gurus like Philip Bloom provide a well-rounded and insider's perspective to show filmmakers how it's really done. DSLR Cinema gives the inside track on using hybrid DSLR cameras for cinema projects, providing information on workflow guidance, advice on how to get good audio, equipment listed by budget category, and the relationship of cinematography to good storytelling. A companion website features the DSLR films discussed in the book, giving readers that extra nudge to go out and make awesome DSLR films of their own.
