Obviously, there are a lot of youtube gun and shooting videos out there. I have a question for you guys about what you like to see in shooting videos. Do you prefer the first-person camera angle or the third-person camera angle? I personally like a mix of both; for me the “first person shooter” angle is a lot more visually interesting, especially when the camera is close to the shooter’s line of sight. However, the third-person angle is obviously more beneficial for demonstrating technique and observing areas that need improvement.
So if you were watching a video for educational and entertainment value, would you want primarily 1st person footage, 3rd person footage, or an equal mixture of both? Vote in the poll below and add your answers to comments.
