Camera If you have ever used a domestic camcorder, you will find that the basic controls on a professional video camera are not so very different. At the front of the lens is the focus ring and just behind it is the zoom ring. To focus on a particular object the operator zooms in as tight as possible on that object, focuses on it and then zooms out again to the desired framing. This ensures that the object will always be in focus whether zooming in or out from it in the course of a take.
