Review:

"It's been a painful transition from film to digital for many cinematographers. Brown takes the mystery out of it and presents the technical aspects of this change seamlessly. It is, after all, about art!"

- Judy Irola, ASC, Conrad Hall Chair in Cinematography and Color Timing, USC School of Cinematic Arts

"As a practicing cinematographer who also teaches, I consider The Filmmaker’s Guide to Digital Imaging essential reading for my students. Blain Brown demystifies the technical processes of digital cinematography from the most basic to the more complex. Given the recent rapid development in this field, working professionals too will find this is a must-have guide. I'm one of them."

- Anthony Jannelli, Head of Graduate Cinematography, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University

"Read this book and not only will you know what photons do, you’ll be able to make them dance to your tune. Whether you are a working cinematographer, camera assistant, or postproduction artist, or if want to pursue one of these careers, you will learn both theory and practical techniques in these pages."

- Leo Sopicki, Blogcritics.org
