"All of Pogue's presses are well-done works of exhaustive technical detail, sniffing out and solving nuisances, and a good-humored enthusiasm for the creative drive...For the beginning filmmaker it has everything from choosing a camcorder to professionally-oriented grounding in film and editing techniques...Pros will appreciate the avenues to output covered, such as export to tape, QuickTime, video codecs, burning to discs, Web distribution and movies phone...Sure, this book is heavier than your camcorder, but don't leave home without it."
-- Tony Reveaux, Film/Tape World

"One of the beauties of the Missing Manuals is that there is always something new to discover and the research is quite thorough...I kept finding snippets of information, in the way of Tips or Notes, that would give just that bit extra."
-- Graham K. Rogers, Bangkok Post

"There are a lot of good books, but I keep returning to the Missing Manual series because they are inexpensive, easy to read and full of cool tricks and tips."
-- Bob Brooks, The South Bay Apple Mac User Group

-- Kevin Kelly, co-founder of Wired
