I finally found a decent forum on cinematography!!

Well im not sure this has been asked, but as a amature/aspiring filmmaker I really only know the basics of video cameras so I was just looking for a recommendation on any books that really helped you out when it came to getting to know exactly what all the ins and outs of your camera do and how to use it all properly. I plan on purchasing a XH-A1 sometime by July and being a pretty technical camera I want to know everything I can about it so I can make a solid educated purchase.

Thanks.

There's some pretty good stuff here, http://www.adobe.com...primer_0306.pdf

'DV Rebel's Guide' is good too.
'Digital Moviemaking' Scott Billups

Reading the camera manuals are great resource too.
