Q. What is the difference between cinematography and videography?
A.To put it simply, it is basicly the equipment used and the style.
Videography is traditionally a camera on a tripod without much movement. Cinematography is utilising HD cameras with the use of equipment such as steady cams, glide cams, stabilisers, monopods, sliders, creative lighting and a range of lenses that allow steady and creative movement. Many people are not familiar with the terminology 'cinematography' so we often use the word 'videography'.
