“The guides are really fantastic, and the best part about them — in my opinion — is that they aren’t written by an engineer, but by someone who spends most of his working hours on a set where speed and accuracy are critical.”

Joe Marine of NoFilmSchool.com

“There are so many cameras and options out there these days, it’s very difficult to commit all this info to memory. These guides are a great way to stay up to date on what each camera system is capable of and common best practices"

Matt Jeppsen of FreshDV.com

“These are little guides that you can stick in your pocket or view on your device, like your phone or tablet. Really convenient when you are on set and need to quickly figure out something about your camera."

Brent Pierce of Cineblur.com

“These guides are ideal for any pro shooter...when you’re on-set the format of these guides is perfect. Charts, graphics and diagrams make it easy to get the camera info you need quickly."

Danny Greer of Premiumbeat.com

“What an awesome gift to crew and AC's everywhere"@SteadicamJD

Designed for Life On Set and Behind the Lens

Designed for Life On Set and Behind the Lens

Made by a camera assistant with established experience who understands life on set, each pocket guide is full of charts, text, graphics and simple diagrams that take complicated camera systems and make them easy to understand.

Easy Reference in the Chaos of a Shoot

Easy Reference in the Chaos of a Shoot

Too many camera manuals are filled with warnings and instructions you only read once. The pocket guides, however, contain info that you'll always want close by so you can find what you need without wasting time getting lost in a manual.

Printable. Portable. Pocketable.

Printabled. Portable. Pocketable.

The pocket guides are designed to fold from a full sheet of paper into a small "book" that fits inside your jeans, your toolbag, your frontbox, or your pouch. All you need is a printer and a piece of paper.

Compatible with Tablets and Smartphones

Compatible with Tablets and Smartphones

Prefer digital to analog? The pocket guides are PDF files with tablet and mobile formats for use on many platforms including iOS, Android, Windows, or OS X devices – you can even put them on a Kindle.

Go Beyond the Camera Manual

Go Beyond the Camera Manual

Significant research went into the pocket guides, often from multiple sources such as manuals, white papers, brochures, and third-party data. In many cases, the pocket guides themselves go beyond the basic info offered in the camera's operation manual.

Firmware Updates? No Problem.

Firmware Updates? No Problem

If a camera's firmware is updated, its pocket guide will get updated, too. From the moment you download them, you'll receive emails whenever a pocket guide gets updated so you always have the most up-to-date information.

Frequently Asked Questions
