need advice on shooting good footage with xl-1 : LUSENET : Shooting DV Films : One Thread

I have a xl-1 and is a great camera. However, my knowledge of camera are only good to certain levels and I know I can do a lot more with the xl-1 if my camera skills are better. Does anyone know any websites or books that would allow me to know more about shooting/cameraworks. Any word of advise would be great too.

I especially want to learn about exposures, and gains on the camera...actually, anything that would allow me to shoot great footage

Thanks in advance.
