    Is it just me or do a lot of us find the new camera work irritating

    Here is a big pet peeve I have. I despise the way they shoot video these days. They change the camera view every 1/2 second! My brain doesn't operate that fast! A couple of examples: I like to watch the "Overhaulin" shows. I think some of Chip Foose's designs are beautiful, but they ruin it for me with the camera work. I want time to really study the outcome, but instead they change the view very fast plus zooming in and out so fast you can't appreciate the craftsmanship of the build. A lot of times I just reach for the remote and turn a show off when they do that. It hasn't always been like this. It seems to have arrived in the last few years.

    Here is another example. I was goofing around tonight and I wanted to see what the hottest Cadillac is these days. I clicked on this video to check out the Cadillac CTS-V.

    You just have to watch the first 60 seconds to see what I mean. Anyone else feel the same or is it just me?

    I've got the same gripe. Don't watch TV anymore, but when I see an ad like that, it has me wondering, "What are they hiding?" They obviously do not want one to see the image.

    I agree as well. I find it very irritating. I recall reading something a while back that this rapid jump-cut technique is being pushed in film schools in recent years. I don't recall why they thought it was popular. I also remember someone saying they felt the technique catered to the short attention span of younger viewers.

    On a similar vein, I find the over used fake drama inducing build-up music sirens used on virtually every "reality" show equally disturbing.

    It is irritating. I wonder, do they move along so we wont see waves in the bodywork? It's just the new way.

    I hate how TV, (Land And Order is the worst) plays background music so loud I cant hear what they say. Maybe I'm just too old,,,,,,,,,

    The cuts are an attempt to keep the viewer's eyes on the screen. You've got a phone/tablet/laptop at your fingertips, why would you stare at a tv that isn't constantly updating? I know that my laptop and tablet have virtually ruined my movie viewing experience.

    I've been watching the UK Top Gear for a long time and they really like their camera work. The US seems to have kept that aspect of the show. I enjoyed the #*@& out of that clip. If I have a question or see something I want to look at in a little more detail I do a Google Image search. In no way am I a camera guy. I'm a hack with a GoPro and a decent DSLR and I've always been fascinated with the neat angles and perspectives they come up with. I can see how someone wouldn't like how jumpy the video can be. Having grown up in the video game age I think that may have helped me. This is just me, but I've seen some shows that don't move around and I feel they look cheap and "slow". In Omaha, Channel 7 uses a more modern approach when doing their news and I like it, where channel 6 is a more stationary format and I can't watch it. I really like the show Gold Rush and they have some really cool photography also.

    If they let you study the build you'd quickly pick out the corners that were cut or the details that were overlooked.

    I don't like it as well but still watch and hope they go back to what I wanted to see and focus on that. Probably why I buy movies, so I can slow it down or pause it.To go off topic a bit, what makes your camera take purple pics in these new cameras that have memory cards in them? Doesn't do it all the time but is happening more and more all the time.

    Do you have a purple cast to the entire image or just purple around the edges where there is contrast?
