Camera Movements

I talked in other posts about different kind of camera movement and about some of tools for create that movement. But I think it is very interesting to compare and see the difference between various camera movements.

When I started studying cinematography it wasn’t easy for me to identify the technique behind moving shoot. So here  a list of movement, some tips to identify them and a couple of video that explain them.

  • Tilt  the camera moves on its vertical axis up and down
  • Pan the camera moves on its horizontal axis left to right
  • Zoom in or out, technically, it’s not a camera movement since the camera doesn’t move, but the length of the lens is.
  • Dolly in or out tracking: behind, before, side. The camera is mount on a dolly
  • Hand held The camera is on the shoulder of the operator.
  • Steadicam gives you the possibility to freely move with a fluid and smooth feeling
  • Drone
  • Movi, it’s a stabilizer and has any stabilizer gives you the possibility to freely move with a fluid and smooth feeling
  • Car shot
  • Crane and jib they move the camera up and down, left right. they can tracks.

All of them can be combine between each other. For example zolly is a combination of zoom in and dolly out or vice versa.

Now how to recognize them Til and Pan are self explanatory the camera move on its axis up and down or left and right.

In all of them but Zoom physically the camera moves into space, it goes from point A to point B.

In this video the difference between zoom and dolly are explain clearly.  Film Riot are an amazing Youtube Chanel for filmmaker they have video about almost everything you can think about, you are looking for how to do on camera special effect in your  ultra low budget project or what is the difference between zoom and dolly or anything else you have a good change to find an answer there.
