Cam operation -_day_2[1]

  1. 1. Operating a Digital Video Camera
  2. 2. Objectives Identify appropriate camera angles and placements Identify the different camera framing used Understanding the motivational reason when using camera movements
  3. 3. Objectives Interpret the effect of lines Demonstrate the rule of thirds in composition Identify the various camera angle placements
  4. 4. Aspect Ratios
  5. 5. Horizontal Camera Placement Front view Side view Back view
  6. 6. Portrait Shooting More susceptible to noise. Consumes less power than CCD, as much as 100 times less. CMOS cameras are usually less expensive and have great battery life.
  7. 7. Main Camera Features Viewfinder LCD Monitor
  8. 8. LCD Monitor Larger view Swiveled angles Touch screen Consumes more battery
  9. 9. LCD Monitor Record cue light Battery indicator Tape Shutter speed Gain level White Balance preset Filters Audio meter
  10. 10. Battery Life LCD indicator Recording time left Warning indicator ALWAYS CHECK! Backup plans - AC
  11. 11. Main Camera Features Zoom (optical & digital) Focus Exposure White balance Back light
  12. 12. Optical Zoom W = Wide T = Telephoto
  13. 13. Digital Zoom Reduced image quality Pixilation
  14. 14. Focus Control Clear / Sharpen Off / Soft focus Zoom in to the eye NEVER Set to Auto!!
  15. 15. Focus ControlA Sharp Image A Blurred Image
  16. 16. Exposure Control Aperture Amount of light Shutter speed NEVER Set to Auto Exposure!!
  17. 17. Exposure Control
  18. 18. Depth Of Field Small Aperture = large f-stop number = large depth of field Large Aperture = small f-stop number = shallow depth of field
  19. 19. Depth Of Field Which picture is taken on a larger aperture? Notice how the focused image gives more attention to the words on the fridge.
  20. 20. White Balance True white Different colour temperatures Indoor / outdoor NEVER Set to Auto White Balance!!
  21. 21. Colour Temperature Chart
  22. 22. Other Camera Features These other features are also present in the camera. However, knowledge or application of these features are not necessary to achieve high quality video images. Sometimes, using these features can result in poorer images.
  23. 23. Backlight Function For use on silhouetted images Engaging the button will brighten the foreground and darken the background to give a more even image Adjust your lights to achieve your desired image!
  24. 24. Image Stabilization Steady shot Smoothen shake and jitter Optical / Electronic image stabilizer Use a tripod or rig if you want steady camera movements!
  25. 25. Input / Output Connectors XLR connectors (Audio) Headphone & MIC Output connectors1. Firewire/i-link/IEEE-19342. USB3. S-video4. RCA
  26. 26. Still Photo Capabilities Why are you taking still photos using a video camera??
  27. 27. Interval Recording Records footage in segments E.g. every 10, 20, 30 minutes This function is very useful for filming time lapse sequences However, the camera cannot be left on its own, and must still be looked after all the time!
  28. 28. Low Light / Gain Boost Grain / Pixels Poor image quality Short cut!
  29. 29. Tripod Components Extendable height Number of sections Fluid head Lever balancing
