Good entry level, but dissapointing
I was disappointed to see entire chapters dedicated to the use of the TRIAL software that comes on the included disc. This sort of information is best left to the manual that should come with the software in which you purchase. In general I always hate the lure of an included CD just to be let down that it is full of strictly TRIAL only programs. So to me even though this book does give some great tips and how-to I must rate it as just barely mediocre. There are several other books out there as money better spent.

Good Entry Level book...
Digital Video Essentials is a very thoughtfully organized book.. It gently walks you through the entire process from your first take to burning your memories to DVD. It covers everything from the basics of videography to the more technical aspects of digital video.
This book is geared towards the newbie videographer. It has a lot of information about basics like composition, shot preparation, and explanation of the basic technology behind digital video. It also covers the basics of iMovie and Ulead VideoStudio,. two entry-level digital video software packages.
If you're new to digital video, and want a book that helps you get started with the very basics, this is a great book to get your feet wet.
