The limitation of that kind of vid is that this style was established in the last 80s at MTV to cover stuff down and dirty (no sound design, no writing, gimicky "flash" editing, et al) resulting in an "immediate" feel but no actual content save the eye candy quotient. This is a disposable format that allows some footage while paying only for skin and bones production using prosumer cameras and someone's Final Cut Pro system set up in their garage.

So you have iconic events (Half Dome free solo) presented home movie style. I sort of like the rough edge of this stuff but if yo see this stuff on TV at all it's by and large on low end cable at two AM.
