This video is of a conversation that took place on the show floor at NAB 2010 between the infamous video guru Philip Bloom and DSLR video shooter Khalid Mohtaseb. Just in case anyone missed it there has been a vigorous debate here on this very site about the rights and wrongs of a montage of footage the Khalid showcased – the debate even made it all the way to the Huffington post.
In this video Mohtaseb canvasses the views of Bloom, who spent 17 years as a news cameraman, about the issues around the use of cinematic techniques for news shooting.
