Basic Video Taping Techniques - Quiz


This quiz will assess the users knowledge of basic video taping techniques. The quiz will ask general questions about the camera, lighting, audio and composition.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The camera exposure adjusts the focus.

    • A.

      This is a true statement.

    • B.

      This is not a true statement.

    Correct Answer
    B. This is not a true statement.
    Explanation
    The statement is not true because camera exposure and focus are two separate settings in photography. Exposure refers to the amount of light that enters the camera sensor, while focus determines the sharpness and clarity of the subject. Adjusting the exposure does not affect the focus of the camera.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    The setting on the camera that tells the camera what is white is called what? (Please spell correctly. Miss spelled words are counted as wrong.)

    Correct Answer
    white balance
    whit balance
    white balanc
    whitebalance
    Explanation
    The setting on the camera that tells the camera what is white is called "white balance". This setting helps the camera adjust the colors in a photo or video to accurately represent the true colors of the scene.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The setting on the camera that is used for LOW light settings and boost the camera's sensitivity to light is called what?

    • A.

      Focus

    • B.

      Zoom

    • C.

      Shutter

    • D.

      Gain

    • E.

      White balance

    Correct Answer
    D. Gain
    Explanation
    Gain is the correct answer because it refers to the setting on the camera that increases the sensitivity to light in low light conditions. By adjusting the gain, the camera can capture more light and produce a brighter image in low light situations. This setting is commonly used in photography and videography when shooting in dark environments or at night.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What setting on the camera is used to interrupt the light coming through the lens?

    • A.

      Exposure

    • B.

      Shutter

    • C.

      Gain

    • D.

      White Balance

    • E.

      Zoom

    Correct Answer
    B. Shutter
    Explanation
    The shutter setting on the camera is used to interrupt the light coming through the lens. When the shutter is closed, it blocks the light from reaching the camera sensor, resulting in a dark image. When the shutter is open, it allows light to pass through and expose the sensor, creating a properly exposed image. By adjusting the shutter speed, the amount of time the shutter remains open, photographers can control the amount of light that enters the camera and thus the exposure of the image.

  • 5. 

    The color temperature scale for light is called the _____________ temperature.

    Correct Answer
    Kelvin
    Celvin
    Kilvin
    Kelven
    Explanation
    The color temperature scale for light is called the Kelvin temperature.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The light bulb is an icon used to represent the color temperature that is outside.

    • A.

      This is a true statement.

    • B.

      This is a false statement.

    Correct Answer
    B. This is a false statement.
    Explanation
    The given statement is false because the light bulb is not used to represent the color temperature that is outside. The light bulb is typically used to represent the concept of illumination or light itself, rather than specifically representing color temperature. Color temperature is a characteristic of light that determines its warmth or coolness, and it is usually represented using a color spectrum or a color temperature scale, rather than a light bulb icon. Therefore, the statement is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Light rays that are SCATTERED through a diffuser are called what?

    • A.

      Hard light

    • B.

      Medium light

    • C.

      Tungsten light

    • D.

      Soft light

    • E.

      Day light

    Correct Answer
    D. Soft light
    Explanation
    When light rays pass through a diffuser, they become scattered and spread out in different directions. This scattering of light creates a soft and diffused lighting effect, which is why the light rays are called "soft light". Soft light is often used in photography and cinematography to create a flattering and gentle illumination with minimal shadows and harshness.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    What is the difference between a dynamic microphone and a condenser microphone?

  • 9. 

    What is the difference between daylight source light and tungsten source light?

  • 10. 

    What is the main property of an omnidirectional microphone?

    • A.

      Can only gather sound from one side of the microphone.

    • B.

      Can only gather sound from the top of the microphone.

    • C.

      Gathers sound by vibrating.

    • D.

      Gathers sound in all directions around the microphone.

    • E.

      Can easily burn out when carried upside down.

    Correct Answer
    D. Gathers sound in all directions around the microphone.
    Explanation
    An omnidirectional microphone is designed to capture sound from all directions around the microphone. Unlike directional microphones that only pick up sound from one specific direction, an omnidirectional microphone has a 360-degree pickup pattern. This allows it to capture a more natural and balanced sound, making it suitable for recording group discussions, interviews, and capturing ambient sounds.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    When trying to frame accurately it is best to use what?

    • A.

      The rule of seconds.

    • B.

      The rule of thirds.

    • C.

      The rule of fourths.

    • D.

      The rule of sixths.

    • E.

      The rule of first.

    Correct Answer
    B. The rule of thirds.
    Explanation
    The rule of thirds is a composition guideline in photography and other visual arts, where an image is divided into nine equal parts by two equally spaced horizontal lines and two equally spaced vertical lines. The theory is that if you place points of interest along these lines or at the intersections, your photo will be more balanced and will enable the viewer to interact with the image more naturally. This technique helps to create a visually pleasing and harmonious composition.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    What is the framing called when it is from the waist up?

    Correct Answer
    Medium Shot
    Medium Frame
    Medium
    The Medium Shot
    The Medium Frame
    Explanation
    The framing called when it is from the waist up is referred to as a "medium shot" or a "medium frame." This shot typically shows the subject from the waist to the top of their head, allowing for a closer view of their upper body and facial expressions. It is a common shot used in film and photography to capture the subject's emotions and actions while still providing some context of their surroundings.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    What is the framing that reveals the entire body?

    Correct Answer
    A Long Shot
    Long Shot
    Long Frame
    A Long Frame
    Long
    Explanation
    A long shot is a framing technique used in cinematography that reveals the entire body of the subject. It captures the subject from head to toe, providing a wider view of the scene and showing the subject's full body position and movement. This framing is often used to establish the spatial relationship between the subject and the surrounding environment.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    A POV is an abbreviation for point of view.

    • A.

      This is a true statement.

    • B.

      The statement is incorrect.

    Correct Answer
    A. This is a true statement.
    Explanation
    The given statement is true because POV is indeed an abbreviation for point of view. Abbreviations are commonly used to represent longer phrases or terms in a shorter form, and POV is widely recognized and used to refer to a particular perspective or standpoint. Therefore, the answer is correct.
