Hello Everyone,

I have been self-learning everything I can about cameras this Summer but have found it somewhat difficult to get a grasp on the many different factors that make up a digital camera. Essentially, every time I learn something, something new seems to pop up the next week. I feel as though if I were to find an extensive guide, or even various resources telling me what I need to know about digital cameras, I would be able to learn more efficiently.

For example, I recently touched up my knowledge on the different types of image sensors and shutters, and the differences between them all.

The resources I have been using in the past few days have been RED's RED101 Articles and Quantel's Digital Factbook

 

Thank You,

Joseph Robinson

I discovered another good resource in case anybody else is interested in learning these concepts. CambridgeInColor's Tutorials

I just started reading David Stump's "Digital Cinematography" textbook and it seems pretty thorough.

Thanks David, I previewed it on Amazon and it looks like a great resource for all that I am trying to learn; a lot of the concepts I am curious about seem to be addressed in the book. I'm going to order myself a copy when I am able to.
