Default The camera angles used during klitschko/adamek were terrible!

Over the past few years, I've really started to hate the camera angles used during the Klitschkos' fights in Europe. It's as if the director of the live feed is trying to be fancy or do things differently from HBO, but the only thing he is really doing is providing TV audiences with terrible coverage of the fight.

During last night's fight between Klitschko and Adamek, there were so many moments when I felt like the camera was too far away, when I couldn't see what was happening, when the referee was blocking my view of the action, etc.

In fact, there was at least one moment when the camera was covering the action from a strange high angle -- badly, I might add -- and I could see another cameraman in the shot with a better angle of what was happening. It's ridiculous.

Whoever directs the live feed should be fired. Anybody else ever feel this way?

Think it has to do with the fact the european providers get rights to all the best camera angles and location, and HBO has to suck it up and settle for what they can get.

On HD it looks sick!

I bet if your a cheap **** streaming online you probably hate it because they zoom out and show a more wider angle limiting what you can see.

They all use the exact same, I think RTL is in control, HBO has to use what they use.

Its funny, how they use these angles. the camera is more dynamic so i can see how an untrained eye would think that the movement of these guys is better than it actually is. All just neat camera tricks

The polish camera men tried to get the ringpost in the way of their recording so you couldn't see Adamek being raped.
