THE HANDBOOK had been out of print for over ten years when the Society for Imaging Science and Technology delivered the long-awaited revision in the Spring of 1997. As in the original handbook, the current edition maintains the objective that the volume is a reference work, not a textbook or an encyclopedia. A reference work reminds one of details of knowledge previously learned, but not regularly used, and provides a source of numerical constants, formulas, definitions, and data not customarily memorized. The updated version of the Handbook includes over 500 figures, 200 tables, and over 1,250 references contributed from imaging science professionals and institutions throughout the world.

Almost every section of the Handbook contains tutorial encyclopedic material, but usually not enough for the beginner to learn an unfamiliar field. However, assisted by the extensive guide to the published works in photographic science and engineering (Section 23, Guide to Photographic Information) the beginner can embark upon their journey in the field. This material, like many others, was prepared especially for the Handbook and is not available elsewhere.
