INTRODUCTION TO CAMERAS: SKILLS

During our media lessons, we were taught how to use industry standard cameras which were HD and capable of filming cinema like scenarios.  Here are some key points:

  • Make sure the camera's are held right (By the handle and grip)
  • The batteries are inserted and removed correctly
  • The memory card is inserted right
  • The legs on the tripod are set out even
  • Making sure the camera is locked in properly


  • Ensure you focus the camera before filming
  • Get a good angle and shot 
  • Change the effects and lighting using specific buttons
  • Find a good position for the camera and maintain it
  • Ensure that the camera has everything in shot = Mis en Scene
