Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and we are about to enter that time of year where cameras will be capturing video in a majority of households in the United States. Don't be that person who takes awful video that no one wants to watch! We all know what it's like to watch other people's home video and gotten either bored, motion sick or both. Unless you have some sort of sick desire for revenge, don't do it back to them! The way to avoid this is easy; something anyone can do.
Trying to shoot video without any gear can be a nightmare. The last time I tried it is when I was 13 -- and there's reason that I haven't tried it since! My parents had bought their first camcorder and, after they got bored with shooting a few birthdays and holiday gatherings, they let us kids play around with it.
