Yeah, I'm getting old and crotchety, but I've now given up watching footie and cricket due to the crap camera work, more specifically the obsession with over-zooming. Cricket: In the good ol' days the camera would zoom in to follow behind the bowler, stopping when he reached the crease. It was a straightforward task for the cameraman to pick up the ball once it had been hit. Now the camera keeps zooming after the ball has been bowled; there then follows a mad series of pans while the camera wallah tries to find the ball. Result - a headache. Football: They haven't cocked up the regular run-of-play coverage yet, but the action replays are a joke for the same reason: camera geezer is zoomed in so tight that the action replay usually misses the ball going into the net. Next thing you know, they'll be using the music video cut technique (switch camera every 0.7 sec) during regular run of play. Thanks. Rant over.
