Introduction to Cameras

Camera Skills:

  • Use tripod for secure filming - this can be used for panning or steadily filming instead of filming by hand.
  • Focus before filming - use an object/area with clear letters or pattern to focus before recording, doing this can guarantee a clear picture whilst filming.
  • Make sure the shots being made are accurate - this is done by creating enough space (not too much or little) for viewers to see the situation of the scene and follow movements of the characters so that a more precise action is made. 

  • Close the lens when not in use - this enables the lens to keep clean with no fingerprints and it is recommended not to touch the lens.
  • Keep out of the rain - use an umbrella if filming in the rain to protect the camera and its lens.
  • Use the camera and tripod cases - use these when transporting them.
  • Film in legal places - ask for permission before filming.
  • Return camera on time - others may want to use it.
  • Battery life is up to 2 hours - ask for a spare battery if filming for over 2 hours.
  • Using the mic - ask for an attached one if necessary for more clarity of character dialogue.
