Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the advantage of a wide-angle lens?

    • A.

      Great depth of field

    • B.

      Narrow depth of field

    • C.

      Distorts a subject's features

    • D.

      Subjects appear smaller in frame

    Correct Answer
    A. Great depth of field
    Explanation
    A wide-angle lens allows for a greater depth of field, meaning that a larger portion of the image will be in focus from the foreground to the background. This is advantageous in situations where you want to capture a scene with sharp focus throughout, such as landscapes or architectural photography. It allows for a greater sense of depth and detail in the image, making it visually appealing and informative.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    The aperture relates to what?

    • A.

      Frame rate

    • B.

      CCD

    • C.

      F-Stop

    • D.

      Audio

    Correct Answer
    C. F-Stop
    Explanation
    The aperture relates to the F-Stop. The F-Stop is a measurement of the size of the aperture in a camera lens. It determines the amount of light that enters the camera and affects the depth of field in a photograph. A lower F-Stop number indicates a larger aperture, allowing more light to enter and resulting in a shallower depth of field. Conversely, a higher F-Stop number indicates a smaller aperture, allowing less light to enter and resulting in a larger depth of field.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Depth of Field increases when apertures are made ______________.

    • A.

      Larger

    • B.

      Smaller

    • C.

      Longer

    • D.

      None of the Above

    Correct Answer
    B. Smaller
    Explanation
    Depth of Field increases when apertures are made smaller. This is because a smaller aperture increases the depth of field by reducing the amount of light entering the camera and increasing the range of acceptable focus. When the aperture is smaller, the depth of field extends from the foreground to the background, resulting in a larger area in focus. On the other hand, larger apertures decrease the depth of field, creating a shallower focus range and blurring the foreground or background.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of the following is inside light?

    • A.

      6400 K Degrees

    • B.

      4900 K Degrees

    • C.

      3200 K Degrees

    • D.

      1200 K Degrees

    Correct Answer
    C. 3200 K Degrees
    Explanation
    The given answer, 3200 K Degrees, is the correct answer because it represents the color temperature of a typical incandescent light bulb. Color temperature is a way to describe the color of light emitted by a light source, and the temperature is measured in Kelvin (K). Incandescent bulbs emit a warm, yellowish light, and their color temperature is typically around 3200 K. Therefore, 3200 K Degrees is the option that represents the color temperature of light.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which of the following is outside light?

    • A.

      80000 K Degrees

    • B.

      4700 K Degrees

    • C.

      9600 K Degrees

    • D.

      5600 K Degrees

    Correct Answer
    D. 5600 K Degrees
    Explanation
    The given options represent different color temperatures, which are used to describe the color appearance of light sources. Lower color temperatures, such as 4700 K and 5600 K, are associated with warm or yellowish light, while higher color temperatures, such as 8000 K and 9600 K, are associated with cooler or bluish light. Since the question asks for the option that is "outside light," it implies that the answer should represent a color temperature that is commonly found in natural outdoor lighting. Therefore, the correct answer is 5600 K Degrees.

    Shooting documentaries can require in-camera editing

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Shooting documentaries can require in-camera editing because it allows filmmakers to make real-time decisions about the shots they are capturing. In-camera editing involves selecting and sequencing shots while filming, which can save time and effort during the post-production process. This technique is often used in documentary filmmaking to create a more dynamic and immediate storytelling experience. By editing on the spot, filmmakers can adjust the narrative flow, capture important moments, and create a cohesive story as they shoot. Therefore, the statement "Shooting documentaries can require in-camera editing" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Cut shots should never be used to avoid jump cuts.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Cut shots should never be used to avoid jump cuts. This statement is false. Cut shots can be used effectively to avoid jump cuts in video editing. A jump cut occurs when there is a noticeable and jarring jump in the continuity of the video, typically caused by removing a section of footage. By using cut shots, which involve cutting to a different angle or shot, editors can create a smoother transition and eliminate jump cuts. Therefore, cut shots can be a useful technique in video editing to avoid jump cuts and maintain visual continuity.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Changing camera angles is the only technique necessary in a shot sequence.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Changing camera angles is an important technique in a shot sequence, but it is not the only technique necessary. Other techniques such as framing, composition, lighting, and movement also play a crucial role in creating visually engaging and dynamic shot sequences. Therefore, the statement that changing camera angles is the only technique necessary in a shot sequence is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Human eyes generally stay fixed on a subject for 4-5 seconds.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement that human eyes generally stay fixed on a subject for 4-5 seconds is incorrect. In reality, human eyes tend to move rapidly and constantly, making small eye movements called saccades. These saccades allow us to gather information from different parts of a scene and maintain visual attention. On average, saccades last only a fraction of a second, typically around 20-200 milliseconds. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Establish shots are relative to a scene.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Establish shots are used in filmmaking to provide the audience with a sense of the location or setting of a scene. These shots are typically wide-angle and show the overall view of the surroundings. By showing the audience the context of a scene, establish shots help to orient them and create a sense of place. Therefore, establish shots are indeed relative to a scene as they provide the necessary visual information for the audience to understand the location.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    The three essential parts of a camera are all of the following except:

    • A.

      Lens

    • B.

      Viewfinder

    • C.

      Pick-up system

    • D.

      Color control system

    Correct Answer
    B. Viewfinder
    Explanation
    A camera consists of three essential parts: lens, pick-up system, and color control system. The lens is responsible for capturing light and focusing it onto the pick-up system, which converts the light into an image. The color control system ensures accurate color reproduction in the captured image. However, the viewfinder is not an essential part of a camera as it is an optional feature that allows the photographer to preview the image before capturing it.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    All of the following are normal shutter speeds in a still camera except:

    • A.

      1 Second

    • B.

      10 Seconds

    • C.

      1/30 Seconds

    • D.

      1/250 Second

    Correct Answer
    B. 10 Seconds
    Explanation
    Shutter speed refers to the length of time that the camera's shutter remains open to expose the image sensor to light. In a still camera, the typical range of shutter speeds is usually from 1/8000 of a second to 30 seconds. However, 10 seconds is not a common shutter speed setting in still cameras, as it is considered a longer exposure time. Therefore, 10 seconds is the correct answer as it is not a normal shutter speed in a still camera.

    Explanation
    CCD chips have several advantages over pick-up tube systems, including lasting longer, producing better picture quality, and having a longer lifespan. However, they do not require more power compared to pick-up tube systems. In fact, one of the advantages of CCD chips is their lower power consumption, making them more energy-efficient.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    To increase the depth of field in a scene you could?

    • A.

      Move the subject closer to the camera

    • B.

      Use a telephoto lens

    • C.

      Reduce the amount of light on the subject

    • D.

      Increase the amount of light on the subject

    Correct Answer
    D. Increase the amount of light on the subject
    Explanation
    To increase the depth of field in a scene, increasing the amount of light on the subject is the correct answer. Depth of field refers to the range of distance in a scene that appears acceptably sharp. By increasing the amount of light on the subject, the camera can use a smaller aperture, which in turn increases the depth of field. This allows more of the scene, from the subject to the background, to be in focus.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Which is not a basic type of lens?

    • A.

      Normal

    • B.

      Wide angle

    • C.

      Close-up

    • D.

      Telephoto

    Correct Answer
    C. Close-up
    Explanation
    A close-up lens is not a basic type of lens. The basic types of lenses include normal, wide angle, and telephoto lenses. A normal lens has a focal length that is similar to the human eye, capturing a scene with a natural perspective. Wide angle lenses have a shorter focal length, allowing for a wider field of view and exaggerating depth. Telephoto lenses have a longer focal length, enabling them to capture distant subjects in detail. However, a close-up lens is an additional accessory that can be attached to a lens to allow for closer focusing distances, magnifying the subject.

    In white balancing a video camera, the videographer is.....

    • A.

      Telling the camera what color temperature of light is going to work

    • B.

      Using only white light on the subject

    • C.

      Performing a necessary task

    • D.

      Allowing for proper skin tones to be rendered

    Correct Answer
    A. Telling the camera what color temperature of light is going to work
    Explanation
    In white balancing a video camera, the videographer is telling the camera what color temperature of light is going to work. This is important because different light sources have different color temperatures, and the camera needs to adjust its settings to accurately capture the colors in the scene. By setting the white balance, the videographer ensures that the camera accurately reproduces colors and avoids any unwanted color casts. This is crucial for achieving natural and realistic-looking footage, especially when it comes to rendering proper skin tones.

    Rate this question:

    Which is not a characteristic of a telephoto lens?

    • A.

      Flattens contours

    • B.

      Compresses space

    • C.

      Brings distant subjects close

    • D.

      Has a great depth of field

    Correct Answer
    B. Compresses space
    Explanation
    A telephoto lens is known for compressing space, meaning it makes the distance between objects appear closer than they actually are. This characteristic is achieved by the lens's long focal length, which allows for magnification of distant subjects. The other options mentioned in the question are all characteristics of a telephoto lens, such as flattening contours and bringing distant subjects close. However, having a great depth of field is not a characteristic of a telephoto lens, as these lenses typically have a shallow depth of field, meaning only a narrow range of the image is in focus.

    • C.

      Picture distortion

    • D.

      Exaggeration of space

    Correct Answer
    A. Hand holding the camera when in use is difficult
    Explanation
    A wide angle lens allows for a wider field of view, capturing more of the scene in the frame. This can lead to picture distortion and exaggeration of space, as objects closer to the lens appear larger while those farther away appear smaller. Additionally, focusing is less critical with a wide angle lens, as it has a larger depth of field, meaning more of the scene will be in focus. However, hand holding the camera when using a wide angle lens is not inherently difficult and does not relate to its characteristics.
