HVX200 Book

This is just a shot in the dark, but Barry is there any chance you could sell a special online early version of your forthcoming HVX200 book? I wouldn't even care if it was edited. I'd just like to read something other than the manual before I start work on my friend's feature film, and I thought your DVX book was very informative.

Publishing date?

Barry, do you have a formal release date scheduled for your book? I look forward to it! Thanks again for sharing all that you do for FREE here on the forum! :o)

There won't be an online version, no.

The main text and pictures are now done, and it's going to the printer in the next few days, assuming all goes well. So it's close!

Thanks for the kind words! :)

The current package that is *almost* final, is a 230+ page spiral-bound book with lots of photos and color photos, covering every aspect of the HVX that I could think of to include, as well as specifics on operation, menu settings, focus, exposure, workflow, etc. Then there's a CD included that offers two dozen scene file settings as well as all the original photos from the book.

No tutorial DVD will be part of this package, although we may produce one in the future.

The words are done, the photos are done, the CD is done, now I'm just waiting to get the final graphics back from the designer before putting it all together and sending it to the printer... :)

HVX200 Book

Thanks Barry,
Wow, from the sound of it, the formatting of the book with pics and added CD looks to be very, very exciting! (literally) Are there plans in the near future for another L.A. HVX200 Bootcamp?

HVX User's manual is free...

Hey Dylan Cooper!

Go here to get the basic Panasonic book until Mr. Green's comes out...

http://catalog2.panasonic.com/webapp...0&displayTab=R

It is at Panasonic's HD site under "Support and Resources"

We have four HVX-200's and FS-100 Firestores. Love it all!

It's done being printed and is being shipped cross-country right now. I have the companion CDs already, just waiting for the printed copies to arrive!

Barry,

Great news. What's the best way to get it the quickest? I visited your homepage from the link in your profile and did not see any details on ordering the book directly from you. Let us know - A direct link to your preferred route of ordering the book would be nice.
