Is it just me or is the camera work on the TV rubbish.
It started on nypd blue and kids tv and now there is a plague of it - I speak of apparentl weird and pointless camera movement.
Why shake the camera on purpose? Why slowly track around a subject ? Why put people on turn tables? WHY?
Personally I find it crap in most instances - distracting and at worst almost unbearable.
My only guess is that it is thought to add verisimilitude - if it looks like camcorder footage then people are supposed to feel more 'in' the scene - yes I can see that but only when used with caution.
I even copy it cos people expect it - but whywhywhy???
