“The video camera provides such an accurate and convincing record of contemporary life that it has become a more important form of documentation than written records.”There have been many methods of documenting in the history of human， from carved ancient pottery to sheepskin documents， of which the video camera may be the newest form with certain superiorities and inferiorities to written records. The advantages of video camera certainly make it an important form of documentation， but not to the extent of being more essential than written records due to its disadvantages.
To begin with， video can be interpreted as a series of pictures associated along the time， while written records can be considered as the descriptions of these pictures.Therefore， it is undoubtedly that video contains much more information than that of written records. From a video， we can clearly know what happened with subtle details.Merely with a television set， we can easily watch the happenings at home， such as the Olympic Games， comfortably sitting on the sofa， needless to be present on the spot.
And more excitedly， certain close-up enables us to scrutinize our favorable athletes. If there isn‘t video camera， we may be unable to enjoy such activities unless we can afford time and expense to be on the spot. While it is true that we can also be acquainted with the circumstances through newspaper or other media， however， the written record may be unable to present them as accurate as video. The imagination from the reports， however detailed， dooms to be imaginary， by all means different from the real circumstance， which video can represent. Moreover， the written records may contain some mistakes due to the carelessness or injustice of its reporters， while the video may be more accurate and convincing.
Another strongpoint of video is that it can be perceived simply by visual signals， from which people mainly get information in their daily lives， and therefore this method is more natural than written records. Everyone， ranging from a babbling child to an old grandpa， is able to get some information from the video just as they do during their daily lives， regardless of their literate ability. While the written record， no matter how easily it is represented， requires literacy of its readers， and a newspaper or book means nothing to an illiterate person. In addition， video is much easier to comprehend for people all over the world. For instance， an American can grasp nothing about a story written in Chinese unless s/he has learnt such a foreign language. However， s/he can absolutely understand something about a video recorded in China， although s/he may be confused with the language spoken in the video.
