I died a little inside when I came across the word selfie in the article.

Dang. That's powerful. If you're stuck on the way he's holding the phone, then you don't get it.

Ah good, an ad showing how everyone should be caught up in their personal devices and not interact with anyone else.

For every joy, there is an equal and opposite kill joy - Newton's third law of the physics of joy.

Some musicians have the videoscreens put up in portrait mode because it is the artist they want to see from hair to feet:

Thing is, it wouldn't be preventing you from making a portrait video, all it's doing is showing you a center crop of a widescreen recording and still lets you film people from head to toe. Ultimately when you go to publish online or show on a widescreen display, that data outside of your framed view is just filled in rather than black (you'd have the option to see it all via pinch-zoom when shooting or by rotating, assuming it maintains the upright position). If you chose to eliminate it, it's a case of just cropping it out. As a composition, both views should be ok because your subject is central.



Although the framed part would be lower resolution than the sensor recording in portrait, in most cases there are no displays in portrait so that's going to happen on playback anyway.

The live concert view is a noted exception though. Here is a video of a concert's backing videos split over multiple vertical displays and the full length definitely helps (a little nsfw):

but you can see that the vimeo video you're watching it on has to be wide and you are seeing the full body height crop anyway, just everything to the sides too.

1biggrin.gif Yeah I know (although I'm pretty sure niggling is ok up until Christmas Eve). I just want to help more emo-kids across the world shoot better video. When their families see the poor job they make because they forgot to hold it sideways, they might not be treated so kindly. 1wink.gif

angry dad: you interrupted the family to show us this messed up video. Why would you even use 'when the bodies hit the floor' for an audio track when your little sister is right there?
mum: leave him alone Derek.
angry dad: y'know if you didn't sulk in the corner all day, maybe you'd learn how to use that thing.
tearful emo-kid: I hate you all!
angry dad: that's it Mary, get my socks, I'm going to give this kid such a sock-beating.

If everyone's videos came out stable and framed like a professional camera without any possibility of error, every family can experience the Christmas joy.

Until you get to the end,  where you should realize your misconception...

 

Would you rather Apple change their understated selling points to the ones in Nokia's latest Windows tablet ad?

I thought not...

Better than my Bose, better than my Skullcandy's, listening to Mozart through my LeBron James limited edition PowerBeats by Dre is almost as good as my Sennheisers.

Who is the artist/pianist in the beginning of the commercial? Specifically, the solo piano heard when the ad starts, just as the guy is filming the scenes. This is before the "home video" is featured with the sung version by Cat Power. Shazam always results in Cat Power. There are two versions, but I am interested only in the first.
