Why in the name of God can't people use a $40 HD video tuner, a $30 video capture card, or set their camcorder on a level surface so it's not Shakycam Central?

Because we all know you need at least bachelors-level education or experience to put a camcorder on a flat or otherwise stable surface like a table, chair, or even a couch.

You really have a closed mind, don't you? It was probably a cell phone and they also wanted to get a close up of the ass whooping Jared Allen received. Your gripe is really weak and shallow minded here. Be thankful for the video instead of pissing and moaning that it wasn't done to YOUR criteria of quality.

I'm with Por.

Use a freaking tripod or put the camcorder on a flat surface. This crap gives me a headache.

Tripods cost less than $20 at Target. If you can't afford a tripod, then put it on a flat surface. Most homes have flat surfaces.

I'm extremely disappointed in both of you and appalled at your selfishness and complete disregard for appreciation of what was done for FREE for you. You both completely lack the understanding of the situation and have zero mental capability of putting yourself in others shoes.

It's people like you guys that make it difficult to try and do things for people... because it is NEVER f*ckING GOOD ENOUGH!

What's a camcorder?

Still photos are the way to go.

(though it helps to have a GorillaPod for that, too.)
None of the above. It wouldn't have been a wasted vote. Obama and Romney -- Those were the wasted votes.

Sometimes it's hard to tell when you're being serious or not. If you're honestly this pissed off over this, holy shit. Shakycam is annoying, most people will agree on that. By complaining about a video shot in shakycam, it doesn't mean that I don't appreciate the fact that someone took the time to upload this, and that I don't appreciate the fact that it was shared here on the forum. It is not reasonable to expect someone to put a "I appreciate x, y, and z" before issuing criticism (especially semi-constructive criticism). This is doubly-so when we're talking about a non-forum member that I have no way of directly addressing (in which case I never would have said anything of the sort), and when I am making a statement about shakycam footage that is rampant on Youtube in general, not bitching exclusively at the person that uploaded this specific video.

There is nothing wrong with my mental capabilities, and while every man is inherently selfish I spend a great deal of time and energy analyzing WHY I do things, WHY I think things, and if I am fairly interpreting things or just interpreting things through the lens of my existing bias. Yes, I was pissy this morning. Yes, I worded things more negatively than I would have otherwise. No, I was not exclusively criticizing the person who shot this video, nor was I simply bitching for the sake of bitching.

Anyhow, let's kiss and make up. Whistle Anyone who wants to watch, tickets start at $5, front row is $15.

I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

1. Open this thread
2. Open new tab, keeping this tab open
3. Go to http://wonderduck.mu.nu/images/hehhehheh.gif in new tab. Wait for it to download.
4. Go back to thread. Now it should be showing.

Shrug

EDIT: Apparently they disabled hotlinking from Packershome.com, which explains why the image shows in the thread when you open it in another tab (It is cached).

Buncha jerks.
