In the most recent DPReview TV episode, Jordan quietly experimented with some filming and editing techniques employed by many-a YouTuber. Were the jump cuts and quirky transitions as jarring to the audience as Jordan thought they might be, or is he just out of touch and behind the times?

  1. Like many, I assumed this was a video that was rushed out the door for whatever reason.
    It looks much less polished.
    I suppose 30FPS has some uses like perhaps faster panning certain scenes with unusual lighting, but stick with what has worked.
    Cheesy items that other bloggers do are…
    Long repetitive intros on each video, like a bad sit com from the 70s.
    Dubbing in audio after the fact because of an error or missed point that was thought to be important. (Just do another shot and add it)
    Crazy use of fonts.
    Crazy use of weird transitions. One or two maybe, never the norm.

    Keep up the great work

  2. I really enjoyed your traditional way of shooting and editing the best! I hate jump cuts! It's hard as an editor and filmmaker to say that while watching the review video I was much more focused on the content than the editing and video. So these things went somewhat unnoticed.

  3. Jordan no doubt obsesses over issues that most viewers would hardly notice, and even if they did, would find hard to articulate. Hell, as a stills shooter I'm still amazed when images move. 😉

    Ok, I hate jump cuts done outside though, although I'm OK with a presenter being edited that way in a studio; I can forgive it, as I'm mostly interested in the information, and am not looking at the uplaod as I would a movie.

  4. The jump cuts are so distracting and the fast shutter speed makes the video look more amateurish. I think you should do what you love it is not out of touch because the video framing and storyline is what counts and you make a fine job of that . Perhaps you should get Chris to make sure he is more fluent and well practised in his dialogue and he would come up to your standard and no jump cuts. LOL Really think you are a great paring. Keep it up

  5. no matter what shutter speed – love you guys. OK I have to admit one big reason is that for 30 years I have been 6000 miles from home and it is so GOOD (deliberate not trump caps .) ) to see.

  6. Other YouTube channels have desensitized me to these kinds of things. But when you point them out is very obvious to me that the fast shutter speed is a big no. The jump cuts are ok if done well… But not something to make a habit of. I feel like I'm far more responsive to colors, contrast, and sharpness. And content/personality above all, keep up the good work

  7. There is no need for 24fps in 2019. You're not shooting a cinematic epic for the Big Screen. 30fps works just as well, and is smoother.

  8. I watch most youtube content at 1.5x – 2x speed nowadays which seems to muddy the nuances of these artistic technicalities 😉

  9. Kindly share what settings you are using on your GH5. It kinda looks a bit video ish. I shift between Cine D and V on my GH5s. As well, what bit rate.

  10. Way too many people watching videos in teensy tiny mobile photo displays which don't much of anything. You could deliberately defocus your lens slightly and these iPhone viewers wouldn't even notice! But for the rest of us who know how to view video properly (i.e., on an iPad or larger display) can see the details you spoke of in this video. With that said, I can agree about shutter speeds and hard cuts, but 24fps versus 30fps? They're pretty much the same. Neither have the look of 60fps. The only reason I would ever use 24fps is if I shot at 60fps and wanted to deliver a nice slomo.

  11. Most people are awful at speaking well for an entire segment. Sure it might come with practice, but for the most part, jump cuts are a simple solution for when your video talent isn't capable of smooth talk flow in a single take. In many instances, your video talent is someone who isn't even capable of speaking reasonable sentences because they're filled with "Uh", "Like", "ya know…", etc. The worst thing? Is when people end every sentence with a question mark? It makes them sound like they're asking permission? Upspeak is making us all sound like we're not experts in anything, and yet it's a modern social thing.

    For those who are capable of expressing a reasonable concept, if you have to jump cut to remove extended silence while the talent is searching the right verbal expression, uh's or vehicle noise, I see it as at least honest representation.

    As to the shutter speed, yes, it's noticeable. Unfortunately, most youtubers are using their cameras set to auto, so the decision is taken out of their hands. Additionally, we're not likely to have the budget at first to buy crappy ND filters, much less decent ones. So we're used to seeing crappy shutter speed and have begun to filter it out as something you just have to deal with on YouTube. Let me say that if you're willing to make the extra effort to keep shutter speed under proper control, then yes, on a subtle level, your viewers appreciate it.

    As to transitions, yes some of them have become trite. Obviously you're not going to use the same transitions to death like some YouTubers. If you come up with something new, that can be fun. The key may be to simply pepper them in occasionally.

    If you're looking for ways to up your game, that may help keep existing viewers eyes, and may add new subscribers.

    Best of luck staying in touch.

  12. I watch the videos for you two not necessarily what the video looks like but you need to have fun with it so definitely mix things up and see what sticks!
