I have a lesser Sony prosumer miniDV cam, and I want to begin my journey of truly, actually understanding DV cinematography. Can someone point me to some information on how the 3CCD process functions? I'm not concerned with "how to light" necessarily (though of course, I am), but I want to understand the technical process of DV recording. I believe it's one's knowledge of film's physical aspects that lends the traditional cinematographer his ability to create artful images; a similar understanding of DV would help me make better images.

Edit: Anthony Dod Mantle, for instance. I saw a documentary about him. He shot several of the Dogme 95 films and 28 Days Later. His understanding of this medium is incredible. How can we follow in his footsteps?

This is pretty thorough; the guy is a well-respected uber-geek.
