Seems to me the norm today


Seems to me the norm today is:

Shaky cam
Clips shown for a very short duration
Rapid movement from one clip to another
Showing over the same clip again and again in rapid succession

Most of the programs I view are outdoor adventure / nature programs so that’s where my observations are. I’ve also seen TV dramas filmed in "shaky cam" mode with the camera almost flying from one actor to the next depending on who’s speaking. My preference is for steady, tripod shots but since these seem to be the norm, there must be an audience for it.
