Precautions for the operation and maintenance of the camera crane

Rocker use

First, the rocking arm filming

In the era of increasing DV technology, the rocker camera technology has played an important role in variety, sports, conversation and other programs. And the rocker arm, as a special camera equipment, is widely used by TV stations and advertising companies. Especially in some large performances such as square performances, evening shows and other interactive programs. It greatly enriches the lens language of TV programs, increases the motion and diversity of the lens, adds momentum and depth of space to the lens, and makes the audience feel the feeling of the scene; and, because of the unique long arm advantage of the rocker camera, it is often able to capture the lens that other cameras can't capture.

Pan pan on the left and right

In shooting, shaking is one of the most commonly used techniques. When the scene is too grand, if we can't shoot the whole picture with wide-angle lens, we should use the way of "panning".

Pan on the pan and the pan around, the camera position is unchanged, depending on changes in the camera angles to shoot. The shooting method is often used in the following two situations: the first is when a big scene or a landscape is taken, this situation is often used at the beginning of the story piece that you have taken, like an opening, to introduce the location of the event and the position and environment of the leading character. The second situation is to track a moving target, such as an athlete in a high dive, something falling upstairs, or a running car.

On the next pan

With this method, we can track the target moving up and down. In the event of an athlete's dive, the player stands at the height of the platform as the start, pushes the lens near, locks the target, and moves from the take-off to the water, and the lens moves along with the player's fall. This kind of scene is best to be photographed near the camera. If the mirror is right, just a few seconds, the visual impact will be strong. But shooting such a goal is difficult. The key is that the speed of the racket is not good enough to grasp and the mobile composition is difficult. Shooting must exercise several times, unless you are "old", generally do not use too close to the camera to shoot.

Using the method of panning up and down is often used to show some scenes that are too high to be fully expressed in a whole picture, or to express the tall and majestic scenery of a certain scene. High longitudinal building is the best target on the pan. Standing in front of a high building, first taking the base of the building with a flat method and moving the lens slowly up and down to the top of the high building � a small set of lenses put the view of the whole building into sight, making the tall building spectacular.

The left and right pan

Using the lateral arc to move the camera, you can shoot a wide panorama or a moving target.

The method of panning is: first, the body faces the end of the shake, so that the camera is stable, toward the last point of the panning, then the body turns to the beginning of the shake and begins to shoot. The body slowly and evenly to the termination of the direction of rotation, until the completion of the whole process of pan.

When you are panning with a hand-held machine, your body usually doesn't need to rotate 90 degrees. If you exceed 90 degrees, you will feel uncomfortable. It will be unstable for the picture. The key to tracking the left and right moving targets with this panning method is to master the speed of the shake and keep it in sync with the moving speed of the target.

For example, we take a car from left to right. First we have to plan the route of the car and the start and end point of the panning; then take the camera body to the end point, turn the upper body against the clockwise and wait for the beginning of the target; once the target enters the picture, it begins to shoot, and turns the upper body at the right uniform speed as the car moves. The camera is always aligned cars until the end point of the middle pan, cannot stop. The pan should pay attention to the composition balance, walking space target to extra space is greater than. If you want to finish shooting, you can stop shaking the target and stop it for two or three seconds, so that the target will disappear from the picture slowly.

Shooting such a group of shots should be planned ahead of time, and there should be a preparatory process before shooting. In order to prepare the posture, wait for the target to appear, and can not wait for the target to get into the start point before grabbing the machine, so that haste pull the tie, there will be no good results. So it is necessary to make an advance amount.

The mirror should be smooth

To pan, must move the camera steady shot. It is better to use three feet, which is conducive to capturing stable pictures. If a handset is used, the basic posture is to first stand on the feet by about 50 centimeters apart, the toes are a little out of the eight word type, and then shake the waist (attention is not the head, but not the knee).  This makes the panning action more smoothly.

Whether it's up or down or the left and right panning, the action should be smooth and smooth, with smooth picture and no pause in the middle. Be careful not to move the lens too much, or to move the lens without needing it. The starting point and end point of the pan must grasp the skills of a just perfect, a inch. To avoid swaying, like the flowers. The past don't pan pan back, only to do a right or on the panoramic shooting.
