oooo, quite a challenge. I'm just gonna guess some of'em, because I'm pretty sure they just translate directly over. And yes, I speak Spanish :)

In the meantime, looky:

4. Crane (up/down) - Grua (Subir/Bajar)

Hi Andrea once again all depends where you shoot. If you shoot in Spain there they use a different translation of this words, the same happens in Argentina. I prefer use the words in english an then translate to spanish to avoid any misunderstood. Jonathan i agree with you unless the first and the second words, the others are ok, just one more thing you can use the same name dolly in spanish or english the people would understand...

Best


Xavier Plaza

Just in case you speak spanish:

Hola Andrea una vez mas depende el pais donde filmes. Si tu filmas en España o en Argentina ellos utilizan distintas traducciones para las mismas palabras depende del sector donde filmes. Yo personalmente prefiero decir o usar los terminos en ingles y de ahi decirlos en espanol para evitar mal entendidos y hasta en mi mismo pais cuando cambio de zonas o regiones, ya los terminos cambian, para que tengas una idea. Espero que esto te sirva

Saludos

1. Pan Paneo
2. Tilt Picado o Contra Picado
3. Crab (left/right/forward etc) I don't know what are you talking...? but as Jonathan say this mean cangrejo jeje

5. Dolly, and dolly up/down Carro, dolli,
6. Wide-angle lens lente angular
