Hi Everybody,

As mentioned in the topic description we need to credit three cinematographers and don't know how to do it the right way. We shot a 7 min short. For the first 5 minutes we had a lead cinematographer and a cinematographer operating the B camera (under the instruction of the lead cinematographer). For the last 2 minutes we used a different cinematographer which was fully in charge of his work. So now it's about the credits. If anyone could help with this problem, because I want to do it right and give everybody the credit that they deserve.

Thank you so much for your help. I really appreciate it!!!

Sounds just like you had 2 Cinematographers to me. The "main," one would be the Cinematographer, the "b" op would be "B Camera Operator (unless he did any lighting...) And the 3rd would be Additional Cinematography, unless it was strictly 2nd unit work, in which case it would be 2nd Unit Cinematographer.
Also what did you have listed on your deal memos?

An explanation of why a different cinematographer was used for the final two minutes would be helpful.

Generally, the first DP should get the most credit if their work was shown to subsequent DP's who took over, unless the work that came later was worse or stylistically different, and there's probably another dozen equally valid answers coming down the pike as well.
