In-camera effects are special effects achieved by manipulating ''the camera or its parts''. The effect exists on the original camera negative or video recording before it is sent to a lab or modified. In-Camera effects include using filters like the GaussianGirl effect, mattes, or lighting artifacts, like lens flares; CameraTricks like zooms, pans, ForcedPerspective, and dolly shots; time/speed effects like time-lapse, slow- or fast-motion, reverse motion, stop-tricks or speed ramping; or specialty films like infrared or negative image.

In-camera effects are special effects achieved by manipulating ''the * ''Series/DoctorWho'' used many of these during the Classic era: ** The Hartnell, Troughton and first Pertwee title sequences were used with 'howlaround' feedback (pointing a film camera or at a monitor of its parts''. own output). The initial light patterns were created with a pen light. ** The TARDIS teleportation is the StopTrick and a dissolve. ** "The Keys of Marinus" had part of the lens blacked out with a filter and then the footage refilmed, allowing the teleportation effect. A similar effect exists is used for the shrinking grain in "Planet of the Giants". Attentive viewers may notice that before teleporting the TARDIS crew will always move in front of a completely black object. ** "The Web Planet" used copious [[GaussianGirl filters on the original lens]] to create a misty atmosphere (or maybe obscure some of the more obvious screw holes and bits of operator tshirt on the Zarbi). ** The second Pertwee and first Tom Baker title sequences were generated with slit scan photography, inspired by the travel effect used in ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey''. They are also ridiculously beautiful even by modern standards. ** The second Tom Baker title sequence and those of Davison and Colin Baker (the 'starfield') were generated using similar slit scan techniques and a camera negative or video recording before it is sent to filter that gave light a lab or modified.

A number of InCamera tricks were developed in the early days of film when there was not only the obvious lack of CGI but also a lack of film manipulating technology. Of course then a number will have been replaced by easier, more technologically advanced means but some also died out because they were only applicable to black and white. Coloured filters, for instance, could be used to block out light from red or green, rendering some objects or makeup hidden to the monochrome camera until the filters were removed, creating a reveal.

* An in-color version of the filter trick: Zaphod's color-changing sunglasses in the TV version of Series/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy were made out of polarizing filters, with another polarizer on the camera lens. When all three were oriented the same way, light passed through freely and the glasses were clear. When the one on the camera was turned, it blocked the light that the glasses let through, turning them black while everything else appeared unchanged. ---- <<|CameraTricks|>> <<|SpecialEffects|>>

* In ''Film/TheWomanInTheWindow'' by Fritz Lang, Edward G. Robinson is shown waking up from a dream. This is done without any cut or dissolve. Instead the camera zooms in for a closeup of his face, while stagehands removed the tear-away clothes that Robinson was wearing and put in a new set behind him, all in a matter of seconds.

Seen It A Million Times has been namespaced and redefined per TRS; misuses and questionable uses are being removed.
* The [[VertigoEffect Tracking Zoom]] is made by having a camera on a dolly zoom in while the dolly moves away. The subject stays in the same place but the perspective of everything around it changes. You've probably SeenItAMillionTimes, sometimes the human eye can give this effect but for an example, the distorting zoom in on Sheriff Brody's face in ''Film/{{Jaws}}''.
