'The ideal handbook for training in single camera location operation at all levels of experience - its title 'basic' - belies the breadth of information, ground covered and wealth of experience contained therein. On a recent EFP training course, cameramen who were unable to attend wished to have copies of the manual.'
TONY GRANT, FREELANCE CAMERAMAN, TRAINER
'...most informative and well laid out; a very useful compendium for working operators and ideal for assisting students.'
DAVE PETRIE, NEWS CAMERAMAN
'This book is, by far, the best of its kind. On technicalities, it is succinct, precise and accurate. It delivers what it says it will.'
