Does the Size Still Matter?


Another blast from the past…

The bench shot of my dreamteam, my favorite hockey team Dinamo Riga in the season 1980-81.

Coach Vladimir Yurzinov. Players waiting for their shift on the ice. Backup goalie Vladimir Bystrov.

Now it is a live TV broadcast from the game. There is a hilarious monstrosity of a TV camera size behind the bench.

Those are the cameras that were used back then for studio and sports broadcasts. Pretty big, huh?

Back in the 1990s when I worked as a TV cameramen, the cameras were three times smaller than this one.

Does the size still really matter? :-)
