Enter the DVCAM
DVCAM is small, lightweight, fast and inexpensive. Almost anyone can use it-I regret to say, even without reading this book. The results may not look good, but there will most likely be an image. You will not wake up at three in the morning, in a cold sweat, wondering if you remembered to close the eyepiece during the remote-controlled stunt shot, or whether the entire scene has been irreparably fogged, because there are another six hours to go until dailies will be viewed at the lab. With DVCAM, what you see is what you get.
