Inspired by "Why Chyrons Attack" at the Tea Makers blog. To test whether I can make a screencap of EyeTV in HD (yup) and to see if the CBC still did captions over chyrons (a word I only learned today: so that's what they're called!). And no, I don't normally watch How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?.tags: CBC, HD, chyron, elicia, eyetv, hdysaplm, screenshot
[T]he real answer, throughout history, is that technology cannot substitute for the heart, mind and soul of the artist. Nor can any increased frame per second assure you of capturing a powerful moment. Nor can video grant you better composition or lighting. Actually, the video camera is nothing more than a camera and it is the same as it has always been - useless to photojournalistic reporting without a compassionate and sensitive soul bearing it.
