Are any of you into Aviation Videography?
I've noticed something very, very annoying when viewing some of the airport videos that I have. When filming a jet coming nearly directly overhead, EVERY company's cameramen (or videographer if you will) ALWAYS cuts the shot at the point where it is the most interesting (and loudest!). There's video of the jetliner until just about to the overhead position, then it's cut, and usually a follow-up shot follows with the plane well past the best and loudest moment of approach. WHY is this done this way??!! Extremely aggravating to those, such as me, who enjoy the complete approach and landing of a plane on videotape!
Maybe some of you who shoot video can explain why this is done every single time like this?!
Why is it not possible for the cameraman to pivot on one foot, swing the camera to follow the overhead movement of the aircraft, and then follow the plane to touchdown? Or is the equipment too bulky to provide such a move.
IMHO....Even a jerky turn would be better than cutting off a Boeing 747-400 when it's roaring directly above you.
Are there any other video owners out there who agree with me on this point?
