BBC, why the shaky camera?

Posted on by 0 comment 2,549 views

Last night was my first night at home after several trips. I love watching documentaries on British TV. I started watching a program on Channel 4 on the bank bailout business. The content was good, but it was spoilt by the silly fashion of using a handheld camera, and moving it around with no reason, and focusing in and out too. After a while I realised there is a Panorama documentary on BBC1. I switched over, and you guessed it: same childish moving, rotating, and defocusing of the camera.

I wish the producers, directors and cameramen would all grow up and use their brains (and a tripod) instead of simply following fashion, good or bad.
