Digital Video Cautionary Tale

When you purchase something new, you expect it to work. Whether it’s a brand new HDTV screen or a commodity like a MiniDV tape, the potential for failure isn’t part of the thought process as you remove the packaging.

While being a skilled videographer certainly goes a long way, if your gear lets you down, no amount of video chops can salvage faulty equipment (short of hiring MacGyver).
