what’s the difference between signle cam and multi cam

So,  so much, lol. A single-cam sitcom is the more sophisticated of the two. It uses one camera that is free to move and allows the show to also go outside. Multi-cam uses multiple stationary cameras, and filming is only ever done at a few sets. Multi-Cam usually has a studio audience and you will hear laughter in them, you won’t hear laughter in a single-cam.

Examples of a single-cam sitcom are;

30 Rock


Parks And Recreation

The Office

The Middle

Raising Hope

Happy Endings


Examples of Multi-Cam are;

The Big Bang Theory

Two And A Half Men

2 Broke Girls


Mike & Molly 

Multi-cam is really dated.
