My Friend Arnold's Guide to Camcorders by Gareth Powell
The range of styles and standards of video cameras now available can make purchasing one a bewildering experience. Using a video camera to produce viewable videos is not, despite the assistance of automatic controls, easy - especially for the first-time user. In this book, Gareth Powell explains what to buy, how to use it, how to take care of it and how it works. He aims to help the reader to make better videos with less pain, less expense and much better results. This is a humorous, yet factual, look at the subject of camcorders, full of personal but apposite anecdotes. It covers all aspects of video cameras and video making. Step-by-step instructions are given in a series of letters to Arnold, the all-time dunce. This approach, so successful in the best-selling title "Mr Friend Arnold's Book of Personal Computers", should help all readers to use their camcorders and enjoy the results.
