HOW TO DIGITAL SLR: The Ultimate guide by Ryan Bilsborrow-Koo
After weeks revising it, I simply would say that it's the most comprehensive guide about how to DSLR that is out there right now! Check this excerpt here:
"Digital cinematography is changing so rapidly these days that a printed book on the subject is likely be outdated by the time it reaches store shelves; this is especially true when it comes to the rapid release cycle of DSLRs. Up-to-date information can be found on online forums, but forums lack the organizing principles of a book, and as a result it can take a ludicrously long time to piece together reliable information (I spent months forum-surfing to assemble my own camera package). Thus, this guide: I hope it saves readers money they would’ve otherwise spent on an out-of-date book, and I hope it saves forums from so many newbie — sorry, “n00b” — questions".
I will continue saying, there are no excuses! if you have a great story and limited resources, you can make it happen if you put your mind into it.
This guide is awesome!, and the best thing is that it comes from a filmmaker not a theorist.
"This guide assumes some basic knowledge of moving images, such as exposure, shutter speed, focal length, and frame rate. It focuses on the technical challenges unique to DSLR cinematography — it won’t teach you how to light scenes, stage camera movements, or cook a full English breakfast. It will, however, give you a huge jump start in figuring out how to make beautiful, inexpensive movies using a DSLR".
