Book Review – Mastering HD Video with your DSLR

Mastering HD Video with your DSLR

By Helmut Kraus and Uwe Steinmueller, Published 2010

Interest in video with DLSRs continues grow as the technology becomes more accessible, that is cameras with high definition capability and interchangeable lenses. Helmut and Uwe introduce all varieties of gadgets that can further enhance the “out of the box” DSLR experience. Having been an amateur with both video and DSLR for several years, I found the crossover discussion in the book very helpful. There is a foundational discussion on hyperfocal distance. Comparing form factors, the difference between full frame sensors and smaller sensors, is also helpful in translating lenses. As excited as I am to explore the world of DSLR video, I can’t help but be overwhelmed by the number of gadgets available to enhance the experience. Be prepared to spend as much, 0r more, on purchasing additional video gear as you did on your DLSR, if you want the best. Knowing you can get into professional looking videos cheaper than through the traditional route is small consolation.
