Perhaps the sure tell-tale sign of an amateur videographer or a "NEWBIE"
is the constant zooming in and out during a scene.

Worst yet, are constant "ZOOM-OUTS" with almost every scene. This almost gives away that a person is not a professional videographer.

Zooming is necessary for fast action sports, for following action and to accent a particular portion of the scene.

Framing is necessary for changing focal lengths PRIOR to pressing the RECORD button, not during that RECORD process.

I think Chet has made it clear that to define a professional or seasoned videographer, zooming must be kept at a minimum;if NOT at all.

For perfection, look at how soap operas are framed.
