Doggy / Buggy Cam : When the camera moves close to the ground it is said to be in a doggy or a buggy movement.
Timelapse / hyperlapse : When a greater time period is shown to pass by taking shots from a photography camera and playing them in the order, which were clicked in a predetermined manner and at regular intervals. Hyperlapse is achieved when a timelapse footage is combined with motion
Slowmotion / FastMotion : When the camera shoots at a higher FPS to slow down the footage later in post. Fast Motion movement is achieved by shooting at a lower FPS to speed up the footage later in post.
One Take Shot : When a range of movement is carried out through the scene without cutting the shot at all, it is known as a one take movement
