About the Book:

The 16mm Camera Book by Douglas Underdahl is filled with chapters on camera functions, equipment testing, and technical discussions of the majority of all 16mm cameras and related equipment in wide use today. You will find extensive information not only on basics of camera function, but actual camera themselves. Why, for example, is the CP 16R better to hand hold than an Arri 16BL? How can you make any sync camera quieter? How do you perform a scratch test? Which light meter is best for cinematography? How do you shoot a TV screen? What's the best (and safest) way to clean lens?

A chapter on lightmeters explains the basics on exposure in a straightforward yet surprisingly thorough way. Actual equipment (meters, cameras, lenses, tripods, and accessories) is detailed in such a way as to provide a complete ready reference for both the beginner and seasoned pro alike. Need to know the shutter angle of a Bolex? The closest focus of a Zeiss 10-100 zoom? It's all in The 16mm Camera Book
