Micro Features: Camera Movement

Pan- a film or television camera pans in a particular direction, it moves in that direction and follows the thing that is being filmed

Tilt up/Tilt down-A tilt is a vertical camera movement in which the camera points up or down from a stationary location. For example, if you mount a camera on your shoulder and nod it up and down, you are tilting the camera.


Pedestal-A pedestal shot means moving the camera vertically with respect to the subject. This is often referred to as "pedding" the camera up or down.


Track-The term tracking shot is widely considered to be synonymous with dolly shot; that is, a shot in which the camera is mounted on a cart which travels along tracks.


Crab-the movement of the camera ( left and right ) 


Hand held- it gives a jerky, ragged effect, totally at odds with the organised smoothness of a dolly shot


Point of view shot-A POV shot need not be the strict point-of-view of an actual single character in a film. Sometimes the point-of-view shot is taken over the shoulder of the character (third person), who remains visible on the screen. Sometimes a POV shot is "shared" ("dual" or "triple"), i.e. it represents the joint POV of two (or more) characters


Steadicam-a lightweight mounting for a movie camera that keeps it steady forfilming when hand-held or moving.


Zoom-a camera shot that changes smoothly from a long shot to a close-up orvice versa
