I've been an avid viewer of previous years' IFSC bouldering comps, but have been dismayed at the quality of this year's footage. Poor camera angles, cutting from one competitor to another at shockingly inappropriate moments, not to mention the usual inane commentry. Is there any chance of getting a well-edited version? Is there any chance the commentator, likeable chap as he is, could be replaced by someone who actually understands bouldering, and can add to, rather than detract from, what we are watching?

The guest commentator was James Kassay, I think he knows a thing or two about the World Cup.

I have been dissapointed in the footage this year also for the same reasons as you. I was less concerned with the commentary but quite frustrated with the footage.

We listen to our own music while watching the images, the camera work could be better too.
