for what it’s worth….
If I wanted to find out how stable the floor/ground was I’d put my video camera on a tripod.
I’d set up a target with a grid (ie grid paper with a bullseye drawn on it) and center it in the viewfinder.
I’d use my cameras still image capture to snap a photo. (using remote).
I’d run the video for about an hour. (using remote).
I’d open the still in photoshop and cut it in half diagnally and leave half transparent.
I’d open the file in my nle and overlay it on the video.
I’d speed the video up.
on play back, any jitter in the video should be noticable, and measureable.
