Term: Subjective Camera

« Back to Glossary Index

A camera that involves the viewers directly in the action, thus letting them participate more strongly in the atmosphere of a shot. A subjective camera is typically positioned near the characters so that the viewer can easily witness their perception, feelings or state of mind. In keeping with this, the camera performs a lot of movements, such as panning or tilting to simulate the eye of a directly involved person. The most subjective viewpoint a camera can have is the point-of-view shot. The opposite of this is the objective camera.
