The lens are not the ones with high resolution, the resolution is a characteristic

I see some possibilities for the bad quality of most videos.
1. Shakiness is expected when the object filmed was at some distance and the zoom was used. If you ever tried to keep a zoomed in image steady you
will know that it is at least difficult to do without a tripod.
2. Excessive compression is usually a result of the need to upload the video to those sites like YouTube that host the videos. As a streaming video,
file size and quality could turn a real time playing video in something like a slide show, so they usually want highly compressed videos. Some have
also a reduction in the number of colours used.
3. Reduced frame size is the same problem as the one above, it is related to the file size of the video.
4. Some people, knowing that a small sized, highly compressed video is something that we should expect to see on the Internet use that as a way of
making fake videos that are difficult to show as fakes because of the high compression and small frame size, that is why here on ATS we see people
asking for the uncompressed file. The type of answer will sometimes show what the idea of the poster was.
The only physical reason for not having thousands of good videos on the Internet is the fact that most people (like me) do not carry a video camera, a
digital photo camera or a cell-phone with video capability with them all the time.
