How They Broadcast MLB Into Your Home

Tom Guilmette is a professional camera operator for broadcast sports and definitely one of our favorite guys to feature here on Fstoppers (search his name for some other posts on him). So with all the excitement that Major League Baseball brings this time of year I thought it would be appropriate to give you a backstage peek at how guys like Tom work to bring the game into your home. For whatever reason, Tom has yet to allow embedding of my favorite video he has ever created so after you get done watching this sort video, head over to his blog to watch a much longer video with this sort of content.

I'm still blown away by him zooming in on a fly.

In a Boston accent that is wicked. I respect those cameras a bit more now.

I didn't realize the power those cameras have. Or how good of an eye and quick reflexes you need to film sports.
