Different cameras used in movies

by Hope Sharp

How cameras were built.

  • Film cameras have viewfinder,that is an xenon flash lamp which adds enough extra light energy to activate the film even in the dark conditions.
  • Professional cameras use a system called SLR or single lens reflex, which is prisms and mirrors that help you look through the final image.

Movie cameras/ Multiple cameras

  • which takes a rapid sequence of photographs on an image sensor or on a film. In contrast to a still camera, which captures a single snapshot at a time, the movie camera takes a series of images; each image constitutes a "frame".
  • Multiple cameras may be placed side-by-side to record a single angle of a scene and repeated throughout the runtime. The film is then later projected simultaneously, either on a single three-image screen (Cinerama) or upon multiple screens forming a complete circle, with gaps between screens through which the projectors illuminate an opposite screen.
