The classification of the camera crane of the film and television


The camera crane of a camera is divided into many kinds, usually divided into movie application and TV application. The camera crane of the movie is more technical than the TV camera crane, and at the same time the price should be much higher than that of the camera crane. However, the variety is relatively small. And because of the rich type of TV program, there are more kinds of rocker types used in TV, which can be divided into three kinds, with seats, all remote control and all manual. The arm has the function of contraction of the arm rod. At present, the main TV camera crane in the world is mainly: the Movietech large camera crane in Germany, the large camera crane of ABC in Germany, the large rocker arm of Jimmy Jib in the United States, the camera crane of the British Polecat fishing rod, and the small camera crane of Power Jib.

Installation matters

Considering the large volume and weight of the general rocker arm, the installation of camera crane must be safety.

The guiding ideology should be installed in a safe and orderly manner; if installed outside, it should also be considered:

If installed on the road, attention should be paid to pedestrians and vehicles.

If installed on the top of the building, pay attention to the effect of wind power on the safety of the equipment. The general rocker lengthened to more than 7 meters is susceptible to wind force.

If installed on the cruise ship, attention should be paid to the unsafe factors caused by the swaying of the ship.

If installed in the field, we should pay attention to the hardness of the foundation. According to the different terrain, it can be flexible to choose the support of the tripod directly by loading the gun wheel or not carrying the wheel.

When the rocker arm is set up, we should check the level and dynamic balance of each part of the rocker arm, confirm the installation of the camera and adjust the level and dynamic balance of the camera in time; then drag it to the director's position and lock the rocker arm so that the installation process will be completed.

For our country, the application of rocker arm technology is relatively late, and the relative level of technology application is also lagging behind, so there are many misuses in China.

In practice, it is usually operated by a single person, but from a security point of view, two people should operate the rocker camera at the same time. One controls the direction and position of the camera and ensures the safety of the camera. The other controls the operation handle to ensure the quality of the picture.

There is often a lack of communication between the director and the rocker cameraman, resulting in a lack of tacit agreement with the camera lens.

Although the types of TV programs are abundant, the type of rocker arm used is too single to affect the expressive force of the lens.

Due to inadequate staffing and safety measures, unnecessary damage to rocker equipment is common.

The effect of the rocker arm has not been fully played.
