There were special court cameramen and photographers who captured the daily life of the Romanov family. The Company of von Gun filmed the Tsar, and with the permission of the Ministry of the Court, showed these films in movie theatres beginning in 1907. Before the February 1917 Revolution, the von Gun Company was the main provider of the Tsar's chronicles in the Russian film industry. After 1907 other filmmakers were permitted to film the Royal family, including A. Drankov, V. Bulla (the elder), Khanzhonkov Company, Pate Company, and others. Before the beginning of World War I a newsreel became popular capturing military parades, holidays, reviews and drills. Many are devoted to the Fleet. They document everyday life of the Baltic Sea and Black Sea squadrons. Some of the newsreels document the fire of the Maly Theatre in Moscow, mass gymnastics, auto and motor races, zoos and animal preserves, and the life of peoples of the Russian Empire. The objects of filming were political and cultural figures, the construction of warships, the Moscow flood, the testing of new agricultural equipment and the oil industry in Baku. There are also films showing the towns of Russia, etc. During World War I, cameramen captured events on all fronts. Before 1915, the exclusive rights to film battles belonged to the Film Department of the Skobelev Committee. The Skobelev Committee of the Assistance to the Wounded Soldiers of the General Staff was founded in November 1904 as a public organization. By the order of the Scobelev Committee many cameramen filmed the events of the World War I, such as Englishman Arcol (representative of Pate Company, filmed on South-Western and Caucasus fronts), cameramen E.D. Dored (represented American companies) and P.V. Ermolov, (filmed events on Caucasus front); P.K. Novitskiy (Gomount Company), N.M. Toporkov, K.E. von Gan, A.K. Gan-Jagelskiy, made filming in the General Headquarters. Other cameramen such as: A. G Lemberg, S, Zebel, Trushe, etc. also worked at the fronts. Cameramen filmed the war not only on the fronts but also from the rear. Since the first month of the war until 1917 the Scobelev Committee produced about 70 newsreels. From 1914 to 1915 cameramen of the Scobelev Committee produced 21 series of the newsreel "Russian Military Chronicle". The materials of this newsreel were used many times for the separate films made by Scobelev Committee and other film companies.

After the defeat in the Russo-Japanese War, in 1910 the creation of the Russian Imperial Air Fleet began. One of the first leaders of Russian aviation was the Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich. The first statesman who dared to become an airplane passenger was the Chairman of the Council of Ministers, PA Stolypin. In the area of ​Kherson, the largest pilot-research aviation center, Aviagorodok, was established. In 1913 Russian aviation plants built 480 aircraft, in 1916, 1384 aircraft were produced and 1398 aircraft engines were assembled. In October 1917, there were 34 aircraft factories in Russia. Of these, 14 plants produced airplanes, seven - motors, three - propellers and skis, two - magneto, including: - Shchetinin's Plant (St. Petersburg). - Lebedev's (St. Petersburg, Yaroslavl, Taganrog). - Slyusarenko (St. Petersburg). - Dux plant (Moscow). - Russian-Baltic Wagon Plant (Riga then St. Petersburg). - Anatra (Odessa). - The Tereshchenko factory (Volyn province - now Zhytomyr region). - VF Adamenko plant (Crimean town of Karasubazar - now Belogorsk). In 1917, it was planned to produce 2,250 aircraft at all the plants, and a year later, to bring the productivity of the aircraft industry to 3,000-4,500 vehicles. There were planes of Gakkel and Kudashev, flying boats of Grigorovich, fighters and heavy bombers of Sikorsky, helicopters Yuryev, scouts Khioni, Porohovshchikov, Bylinkin, Kolpakov-Miroshnichenko, Krylov, Moiseev, Nevdachin, Savelyev, Semenov.

Первым государственным деятелем, отважившимся стать пассажиром аэроплана, был Председатель Совета Министров П.А.Столыпин. В районе Херсона создавался крупнейший опытно-исследовательский авиационный центр — «Авиагородок». В 1913 производительность российских авиазаводов составляла 480 самолетов в год, в 1916 году - 1384 летательных аппарата и 1398 авиамоторов. В октябре 1917 года в России существовали 34 авиапредприятия.
