Sightseeing with Video Camera in Hand

We love making the florida keys videos. Here is the key, Limit Panning to 180 Degrees. Do a smooth pan, and try to not swing back and forth much. A nice effect is to start with a strong zoom on a subject, then do a slow pan and un-zoom at the same time. For example, this takes the viewer from a personal look at a singer in the band, then pull out and un-zoom to create a wide effect. This works well.
