What happens when you point a video camera at the monitor that it's feeding into? In other words, if I plug my hand held camera into my television so everything that I film appears on the television monitor realtime, what happens if I point the camera head on at the television itself (so I"m filming the television screen and the TV's outer frame)? What image appears on the TV screen?

Thanks,

Platt

You get some of the images in this book:

The simplest case is, it'll look like a long hallway. Now, tilt the camera, or put your hand in the frame, or both, and you'll get some really interesting stuff!

If you throw in the element of alcohol you get an amazingly interesting evening
