The controversial finger-pointing exchange between President Barack Obama and Gov. Jan Brewer, R-Ariz., was famously captured with a still camera but not video. The reason: The pool camera was on the move to get the next shot, The Washington Post
An NBC News camera crew captured the president departing Air Force One and shaking hands with Brewer. The exchange seemed to be progressing routinely and the camera crew then moved to the next shot, a rope line where the president would shake hands with those invited. The White House camera crew followed, the Post reported.
The rest of the pool, a still photographer, a wire service reporter and others, stayed with the president as the exchange grew heated. The television crews, however, could not capture the scene because the president’s limo was between them and Obama and Brewer, according to the Post.
An NBC producer told the Post that, upon seeing the exchange changing, she tried to get the camera crew back but was too late.
