General help needed for a neophyte.

I'm relatively new to digital video, got my VX2000 last xmas. I'm a hobbyist and learning as I do different projects, framing shots, lighting, sound, but I haven't really gotten a grasp of how to optimize the camera with shutter speeds, f stops, etc. Does anyone know of any good tutorials or books out there that can help an inexperienced person like myself?

Another good source of information may be your local community college where they may offer cinematography classes. Not only will you learn to use the camera from a technical standpoint, you will learn the artistry of the craft.
