Magic Tricks or Camera Tricks

If any of you are amateur (or better) magicians, I'd love to hear if youi think the magic tricks in the acts are "real" tricks or if there were camera tricks involved. I especially tried to watch the water fountain routine frame-by-frame and still have no real evidence as to how it was done.
