The Technique of the Motion Picture Camera. Revised Edition.
Souto, H. Mario Raimondo
Aimed at the professional but useful to others, this book provides comparative material on virtually all the motion picture cameras available from manufacturers in the United States, Britain, France, Russia, Japan, and other countries. Information is provided on camera design and on the operation and maintainance of individual models. An analysis of the basic components of a camera is followed by an exhaustive survey of 35 millimeter cameras grouped under such headings as studio, field, and sound-on-film cameras. Narrow-gauge cameras, like 16 mm. ones used in television filming, are also covered, as are cameras designed for special uses, such as high-speed work, stop-motion, animation, special effects, cineradiology, kinescopic recording, and underwater work. Guidance is also offered on techniques of filming, including hand-hold shooting, zooming, and the use of the many devices recently developed for stabilizing cameras mounted in airplanes and helicopters.
