Some of the more recent episodes running on G4 (the COPS channel :sure: ) look as if they were shot on cell phone cameras. Scenes seem jerky and jittery and bounce around a lot more than earlier episodes.

Anybody know what they did?

I'll have to look. I use to watch COPS all the time until I got married then for some reason I just don't watch it anymore.

Nearly everything they've run today has that 'cell phone cam' look.

Most, but not all. Some of them are much better quality. Seems to be the stuff from '09 and '10 that I'm asking about.
