Source F: Video --- Unknown JVC Recorder (model # unknown)
Image from DVD: Here
Notes: Filmed from center-seating (mezzanine), this is a very good video capture of Tool - perhaps this source is the best video from this leg of the tour? Time will tell but thus far the competition has not been too steep. The filmer does not simply focus on MJK + his gas mask but instead attempts to cover Danny's drums, Adam stoically laying the foundation & Justin thundering away on the bass. Unlike many videos this is a mixture of clear close-ups & a good capture of the stage (and light show). Although the audio could be a little bit clearer it is actually rather clear, clean & is actually better than some ECM>MD sources floating around in the first place. Interestingly, there is a red laser-dot that is pervasively off-center throughout the performance - it must be from the camera - at least I cannot think of another rationale. There are some 'back of the head' close-ups, some quick movements & there are sporadic video/audio cuts on this source. That said, this is still definitely a pleasant video & is one of the better captures from this leg out at this stage.
