If you're looking for one book to buy about using a DSLR for making movies, the DSLR Filmmaker's Handbook would be my choice. While a late to the HDSLR book market, this one feels to me like the most complete… and I have seen just about all of them. It is written by Barry Andersson and Janie L. Geyen. They, by the way, were co-producers with me on the “Incident on Marmont Avenue” short that we shot on the Canon EOS 5D Mark III last spring (gosh has it been almost a year already?).
Now, I do have to post a disclaimer… Barry is a good friend of mine so that could be clouding my decision just a tiny bit… but I really do think this is an excellent book!
