Easy Digital Home Movies
My print book, Easy Digital Home Movies includes detailed instructions for using Windows Movie Maker and Sonic My DVD to edit and produce home movies for playback on DVD or on the Web. You can get the first chapter as a PDF free by simply visiting the product page site. The chapter includes a ton of information about choosing the right digital camera, effectively using the zoom feature on your digital camera and finding the right tripod to meet your needs, along with a few tips on things like extending battery life. Of course I'd love for everyone to purchase a copy of the book, but at the very least, if you're new to digital video cameras, the free chapter is a good starting point to make sure you don't make the wrong choice.
