Camera angle vs. camera setup[edit]

On the set, "camera angle" and "camera setup" are interchangable terms. However, the fundamental understanding of these terms are different. A camera angle defines how high or low (or neutral) the angle of camera lens is in relation to the subject or whether or not the camera is tilted. A camera setup is the name/number of each camera angle kept for organizational purposes. I propose that we make this fundamental difference more clear somehow. Any ideas?

I would hesitate to describe them as the same thing - "camera angle" defines the placement of the camera and "camera setup" includes the angle, as well as other important details such as, most notably, the focal length used. Girolamo Savonarola 21:04, 1 August 2006 (UTC)
My point exactly. OK, I'm going to rewrite the article so this becomes more clear. --GHcool 19:15, 2 August 2006 (UTC)
