These are the banes of the video creator: washed-out color, shaky camera work, hisses and hums and annoying electrical noises, even the dreaded visible boom mic.

But the worst part? No matter how careful you are, you're sure to meet them time and again over the course of your video career.
Here's the good news: Just because they're annoying doesn't mean that you can't beat them! These problems plague all videographers, but good ones know how to stop them dead in their tracks.
