''High definition cinematography has revolutionized much of the theatrical film world, and perhaps television even more. This authoritative reference demystifies the technologies of high definition and 24P cinematography and provides directors of photography, producers, directors, and camera crews alike with a good grasp of the technology, as well as the procedural and financial implications behind choosing a format.'' ''This new edition of High Definition Cinematography has been completely updated to keep up with the changing equipment and technology. It includes more information on how HD will affect preproduction and postproduction. There are reviews and information on ten key cameras from Arri, Dalsa, Panasonic, Panavision, Sony and Thomson, and an updated discussion on interlace and progressive scanning as well.''--BOOK JACKET.
