In this thread, I'm sharing a video of how to decrease horizontal and vertical shake while taking video.
I imagine it would cut down on a ton of complaints by UFO video watchers on the parkinsons-like camerawork of the nervous or frightened cameraman.

I know a lot of you ATSers love sky watching, and some enjoy photographing/videoing it as well. I hope this helps you out!
