Kodak has put its popular Cinematographer’s Field Guide publication online as a free download for the Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch and other e-publication readers such as the Sony Reader and Android-based devices.

The guide was originally published 22-years ago as a pocket size book. It’s been regularly updated and re-printed since then, providing up-to-date information that’s especially relevant when shooting on film. It includes sections on motion picture camera films, filter information, tips and techniques, formats and packaging.

“We are told by students and emerging filmmakers that the Cinematographer’s Field Guide is their go-to resource when in the throes of production, helping them determine the best choices for telling a story visually,” says Kodak’s worldwide director of web marketing Nicole Phillips.

The guide is available as a free ePub or a .pdf download from motion.kodak.com/US/en/motion/Tools/Mobile/resources.htm. The ePub includes searching, bookmarking, annotating and page flipping and will work most e-readers except the Amazon Kindle. To read ePub files on an iPhone or iPod Touch you’ll also need to download the free app Stanza from www.lexcycle.com/download.
