      I've just stepped up from a Sony consumer camcorder to the prosumer JVC GC-PX100 which includes full manual, shutter priority and aperture priority modes.  I'm looking for a good book to help me understand these and other subjects such as depth of field, focus and lighting properly.  I immediately thought of John Hedgecoe but he only has one video book and it's a decade old.  Can anybody recommend some good reading for me please?  With thanks

      You can read a lot online? Actually, probabably better that way (more updated). Search around on they have tons of articles and resources dedicated to this stuff.

      The best possible way to learn is volunteer your services to help out with more experienced shooters and then freelance for a few years.  At the same time, shoot as much and as often as possible with your gear in varying situations.  Offer to shoot stuff for your church, kid's school, a local band, etc where you've got some room to make mistakes.
