When you're hiding the camera to avoid being caught, it's not wise to hold it above the obstructions like the seat in front...

No. The silhouettes made sense to me. I am referring to the times when up to 3/5 of the screen is just black. It's almost as if someone had used black paper to censor the image akin to the black bars that censor nudity in certain incidences.

I agree, however I do not believe that a seat in front of the camera would have obstructed THAT much of the film. Then again I do not know how Japanese theaters look nor do I know the security presence that is customary. It seems to me that there were several people filming from different vantage points and collectively the film in it's entirety was captured. A consistent obstruction would make complete sense to me as would a silhouette here and there, the sheer number of different obstructions is what confounds me. I do not even consider the camrip to spoil anything. Sure the static scenes worked well but as soon as a pan or any sort of movement or action occurred, it was incomprehensible.

If this is considered a good camrip I will take your word for it because, as I said, this is my first experience with one. I am merely trying to wrap my head around this.

You have to believe, because you have the evidence to watch. I understand that security is indeed high, so if the camera has a clear view of the screen, security have a clear view of the camera. And holding a camera, phone or whatever still for 90 minutes while watching the film itself and remaining suitably nonchalant is difficult; it's no surprise that the camera droops at times, hiding more and more until it is suddenly corrected to some extent.

I'm a hypocrite when it comes to Camrips; I would never tape a movie in a theater, but I'm perfectly content to watch somebody else's dirty work. From what I can tell, though, it seems like it would be truly hard to capture the full screen while avoiding attention.

Well, it depends... there are near to none controlls in russia. The release groups can record stuff there pretty easily without any shaking and blurry images. Compared to those, the 3.0 camrip was crap. But there are also camrips, that are way more crappier than the 3.0 rip with lower resolution, bad colors and stuff.

yep there is pretty much no point in watching any more camrips when the BDrip is just around the corner.
It's too late to pry away.

Are we talking about the weird shapes of the black bars? It's not chairs because sometimes you could see the bottom of the screen but not the top. I'm 99% sure this person probably put a camera inside some sort of box, or hat, or something to try to hide it, which caused a lot of issues when the camera turned. Not like we really should be expecting anything "better" with a camrip, we've all seen Eva 2.0s. (Well, maybe...)
