What is with the trend of dipping the camera down and away to end a clip after a trick? It's so cliche and distracting that it ruins an otherwise awesome clip. And it seems to happen so often.

Sometimes they "mix it up" by (gasp) ZOOMING IN while they do it. Such skill and creativity!

Seriously though, is it just a crutch of an unskilled cameraman, or do people actually like to see this in every other clip?
