You Can Always Shake it in Post!
Get a tripod! Battlestar: Galactica was a fluke — if you don’t lock that camera down, you’re going to make your viewers queasy. You can pan and tilt and even dolly if you have one, but unless you have a real good compelling reason, please, please, please get that camera on the sticks!
In retrospect: the camera is an emotional machine. BSG was targeting a specific result. Choose how you shoot with deliberation.
