There’s A New Type Of Camera Angle In Football Called 'The Dactylcam' And It's Making People Feel Sick
MLS side Seattle Sounders have started using a brand new camera angle captured by 'The Dactylcam' to broadcast games and it's seriously cool, but be warned; you might get dizzy watching.
The end-to-end camera has been used exclusively for Seattle's home matches since the start of the 2020/21 season.
It gives fans watching from home a completely different viewing experience, and a prime example of its uniqueness was when Jordan Morris netted a sublime indivudal effort against San Jose in the league.
How great is this? Although those who suffer from travel sickness may want to look away now...

Doesn't it! Great to see the different perspectives of the pitch- Lona Price Jones (@LonaPJ) January 13, 2021
Davies, now known as one of the best full-backs in world football, was a relatively unknown teenager when he featured - and he was completely taken aback by the occasion.

This is just so refreshing to see. Davies was clearly just enjoying every moment of the night, acting like a fanboy on every occasion possible.
Take a look at the footage posted by Major League Soccer's official Twitter account below.
In front of 72,317 people inside Atlanta United's stadium, Juventus went on to beat the MLS All Stars 5-3 on penalties following a 1-1 draw in normal time but it was Davies' performance that grabbed the headlines.
We need more of this technology in football. It gives us fans a completely new perspective of the game.
