Home video on the Web -- college reunions

A tiny camcorder or cell phone can record memories and one-time-only events, such as a rock band joining together for the first time in years during a college reunion party (above). For these videos, only one part of the problem is the inherent visual quality of the camera. There's also the darkness of the room, hand-held-camera shakes, and muddy sound from a built-in microphone. Never mind: when a minute or two of this video was posted on Facebook, the video drew "hey, do you have any more of that footage?" comments from the band members.
