As a DV newbie I have been spending a great deal of time absorbing info on th eweb. I am also interested in any DV and video making oriented mags. Would be interested in any suggestions and what you feel their strengths are? Do they cater to or help the newbie oout, etc. Thanks!

Hi,
I subscripte to Videography, Videomaker and DV magazine. I find Videomaker to be more oriented towards teh newcommer, DVMagazine to be a step up from that, and Videography to be aimed at the more experienced.

Enjoy

Bill

lastwatcher, I've found videomaker to a great source for down to earth pratical advice on how to save money on set design, lighting, sound management.... . Info any no/low budget independent film maker can use.

I would advise to not waste your money on Camcorder & Computer video mag.(odd months, it calls itself Computer Video and Camcorder magazine) It's 'reviews' seem to be nothing more than filler between advertising. Not worth the paper IMHO.

Videography is definitely geared toward broadcast pros, but worth reading for people at any level. The pros are who we learn from.

DV mag doesn't need any help from me. They are the best as far as US based zines.

I'll second that opinion regarding Videomaker. "Professionals" with corporate budgets may sniff at Videomaker but it does indeed contain many practical tips and explanations for hobbyists and low-budget shooters. I keep a "tips" notebook of article clippings from magazines. Clippings from Videomaker outnumber all other sources by 5 to 1.

Opps. Maybe I shouldn't have mentioned this! At least you can go there now, and check it out for yourself.

DIGET. I'll have to look for that one. I already buy 2 other Brit cam mags. But they are not always available here in Vancouver, and they are not always good. Personally, I find all magazines very good, depending on which writers have written articles in them. That's what I go by before I buy the mag. I look at the table of contents (and the subject matter). I try to avoid the pretty pictures, unless I'm going for an issue of Playboy. Actually, I buy Playboy for its short stories and articles. (It's the truth, honestly.)

phony.

I stopped reading Playboy when I found that ladies with large mammary glands did not also have a staple in their navel. Yet another does of reality.
