    That camera has been used for years in synchro, with varied degrees of success: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...qM4f1fk#t=269s. If you back up a bit farther in the video, you also get a great example of how NOT to use an overhead cam, when a rotating formation travels right out of the frame.

    Bonus feature: if you scroll to the start of that video, there's an interview with Josiane Lamond, who currently designs skating dresses. She's designed for Cynthia Phaneuf in the past.

    As much as I hate the skycam, the spider cam is much worse. It just makes you feel dizzy to sick, and makes any good spin looks traveling.

    But the worst camera coverage is by certain TV station in Japan, which loves to use close-up of the AUDIENCE during performances
