Abstract:

The present study examined the effects of differential camera angles on perceptions of an eyewitness, the investigator and the subsequent identification. Participants (N= 95) read a case summary about a robbery, and then viewed one of four videos depicting an eyewitness identification. During the interview, participants viewed one of four camera perspectives (1) eyewitness focus, (2) investigator focus, (3) split screen focus or (4) audio only. Participants exposed to the audio only condition perceived the eyewitness and the investigator less favorably. Results indicate that merely viewing the identification increases favorable perceptions of the eyewitness and the investigator, implications are discussed.
