Prime lenses (or fine-tuned focal length lenses) can’t zoom in or zoom out. Consequently, every time the filmmaker wants to get tighter on his composition, he can either
(1) physically move the camera more proximate to his subject or (2) transmute the camera lens for one with a longer focal length and narrower field of view – the telephoto lens. Accordingly, if the
filmmaker decides for a wider composition, he can either (1) physically move the camera away from the subject or (2) transmute the camera lens for one with a shorter focal length and wider field of
view – the wide-angle lens.
As a trade-off for the inconvenience of switching lenses, the image quality is far superior with prime lenses, offering more pristine, more pellucid recordings.
Professional narrative filmmakers always prefer prime lenses.
