Many productions, commercial and industrial, are covered by a single camera, either as a record of the event, or as raw material for a subsequent edit.

The type of production that is usually shot using the single camera production technique is a scripted project for Theatrical or Home Theater release. A majority of Hollywood Films are shot using a single camera.

The standard kit for this style of shooting is often refered to ENG (Electronic News Gathering). Today the basic kit is consists of a high definition camera, tripod with fluid head, hand held and lavalier microphones and an on camera video light.

Extra Production Value might require (at extra charge) a camera dolly on wheels or dolly track, stedi-cam, camera crane, boom microphone, teleprompter and field light kit.
