Today I found a gem, the Professional 16/35mm Cameraman's Handbook by Verne and Sylvia Carlson and it feels like a bible. Well, it is for film school and camera enthusiasts. The cover I mean has the texture of the Holy Bible and the inscription is engraved in gold.
The book has a lot of diagrams on the mechanisms of the arriflex and bolex cameras. It also has a tsep by step guide on loading on loading your roll. Yup all manual from here, nothing digital, nothing automated and that's the beauty of it. Now if only the book came with a 16mm camera. Maybe I have to check out Quiapo for that!
