The Major Production Elements
There are several types of video cameras: large studio cameras that need a special support to be moved about the studio floor; ENG/EFP cameras that are small enough to be carried by the operator; and camcorders, which have the recording device either built into the camera or attached to it.
The imaging device, or pickup, device is a sensor that translates light into electronic energy.
There is a variety of analog and digital tape-based recorders as well digital tapeless video recorders.
