How Sony Unintentionally Defined the Skate Video

How Sony unintentionally defined the skate video

Sony unintentionally redefined the skate video by introducing a new concept: putting cameras in skaters’ hands. This approach changed from Peralta’s early videos, which focused on shooting skaters, slams and stunts. It also introduced skits, music and pissed-off security guards. It was a game-changing concept that was possible only because of new technology.

Modern skateboarding is no longer a monopoly

The world of skateboarding is a fast-moving one. With the rise of social media, the community is increasingly using new technology. Video cameras are a popular way for skateboarders to document their skating. There is also an increasing emphasis on innovation. For example, in 2013 Sotheby’s auctioned off a complete set of Supreme skate videos for $800,000. This resulted in an incredible amount of interest in skateboarding, especially among younger people.

Buy on Amazon – The Sony VX1000 camera first became popular with skateboarders in 1995. But the camcorder’s resolution was disappointing compared to today’s consumer video cameras. Today, camcorders use tiny memory cards instead of bulky tapes, which can hold one hour of footage. The camcorder also had a shorter lifespan than most newer models. Still, skateboarders still prefer the Sony VX1000 camera.

Although the traditional skateboarding videos are still popular, the skateboarding industry has realized the benefits of current tech. A skateboarding event held in 2015 at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts featured skateboarders performing tricks on a ramp constructed for a festival celebrating American culture. The Kennedy Center was once off limits to the skateboarding community, but now it has become a platform for skateboarding enthusiasts.
