I just don't get the wobble on static shots. Action shots, sure, things are moving, the camera has to move around to keep things framed. I get it. But when the player and the basket are all framed up nicely in the shot and everything that happens is going to happen within that frame and the camera will not need to move for some time, for the love of god, just rest the monopod on the mother-lovin' ground.

And yeah, a little less zoom would be nice. Give us some wides. It's not the end of the universe if we can't read the stamp on the disc.

We use the active stabilzation on when we film (it's the highest stabilization setting), helps a ton. We also don't use monopods, but that's another discussion.

I low key hate filming from 90 degrees. Right behind or head on is almost as bad too. The best IMO is a little angle. maybe 20 degrees or something. When it's 90 degrees you have no idea if the putt is going in until it's at the basket, same for directly behind or in front. A little angle and you can tell way earlier if it looks good or not.

You guys use shoulder rigs, right? Same idea applies either way-- if they have a tool at hand for making it better but are not using it, that's just silly.

You're right, of course. I went all the way to ninety because baby steps. I didn't want to overload them with ideas. =D

Whatever you guys do is just what I expect out of coverage/angles now...and when it's not like that it's so obvious to me that it's way worse. I don't have to think "I wish I could see that better" when watching.

Disc golf footage is interesting, look at most other pro sports that are popular...the viewers do not play them still or never have. How many people played high level football or race cars, etc.? Whereas disc golf we're basically all players, so not only do we want to see the flights in a pleasing way but we also want a familiar angle that reminds us of when we throw the shot.

There's also a FPO card without scores while the round is almost over.

The missing FPO foursome is showing up now. All 18 holes at once, with all the UDisc detail. It would be interesting to find out what happened.

Maybe someone bumped the "airplane mode" button and did not notice.

Is it just some of the cards don't feel like taking scores? Kind of defeats the purpose of it all if lots aren't participating.
