What I see coming from Cell Phone video captures.
That's my bet. I've never seen that bad even from my oldest miniDV SD camcorder.
I had posted a question earlier about what video camera to purchase relative to my worry of motion trailing. Below is my original post.
I was mentioning how i like taking video of trains yadda yadda yadda i'm worried the train will look angular as the case is in the video below. Look at the train windows as the train goes by and then at the end when the person pans the camera, it looks like crap. Note i do not know what video camera this person used so perhaps it was a simple still camera.
So basically, i have a on old analog 8mm camera that's still good and shoots in 16:9 ratio and i have someone that can lend me a mini-DV digital but of course not high definition camera. Is it worth it for me to use one of these old cameras? I'm also thinking of buying one of the newer Sony's or Canon's this year and test whether they have improved any in terms of the motion trailing. Is that a good option? Can motion trailing improve (or become less noticeable) or is it something that exists or doesn't.
Thanks for any suggestions or opinions. My trip is in 3 months so i'd love to find a camera that works for me.
