The Technique of the Television Cameraman. Revised Edition.
Jones, Peter
Based on the assumption that the techniques of the television cameraman are specialized and cannot be compared with the operational problems of filmmaking, television studio equipment and the camera are introduced, prefaced by a discussion of the qualities desirable in a cameraman. Composition and movement are dealt with at length, as are the essentials of good camera technique, lighting, and the special problems of outside broadcasts. Two chapters examine basic optics and lenses. Camera movements that are discussed include panning, tilting, tracking, crabbing, and zooming. The book is intended as a manual for those already working in television and as an introduction for those just beginning to work as cameramen. (JK/MT)
