LENS

DEPTH OF FIELD (DEEP OR SHALLOW)

The distance between the nearest and farthest objects captured from a camera in a scene – in other words, long shots and extremely long shots where the objects appear absolutely sharp. The part of the optical field where all objects appear sharp.

CAMERA ANGLE

The point of view that is defined by the relation between the camera and an object that is being filmed, resultung in a composition with particular characteristics.

APERTURE

The opening of the lens or the camera through which the light reaches the film.

ANGLE OF ACCEPTANCE

The field, or rather the image captured by the lens of the camera. The focal length of the wide-angle lens is bigger than the telephono or the zoom lens.

LENS

The type of lens and the way it is used can greatly affect the meaning of each shot.

WIDE-ANGLE LENS

It is often used in order to make the viewer feel he/she is close to the center of action. When used in close-ups of faces, it gives a funny distorting effect (also called fish-eye) often used in comedies, where the nose is bigger and the ears are smaller.

TELEPHOTO LENS

Shots taken with this lens often resemble images seen through a telescope. It brings the object closer, it flattens perspective, and it makes depth of field smaller.

LOW DEFINITION

Low resolution picture (small number of pictures) or a low fidelity sound.
