Frame rates, and progressive


Frame rates, and progressive vs interlaced will have a lot to do with how smooth a pan will look. For instance ( this from a Panasonic manual ) : a 6.5 mm focal length, 90 degree pan, 24P, you have to take 21 seconds to execute a shot with no stutter or judder. At 30P, a smooth pan can be done in 16 seconds. When shooting interlaced or 50P or 60P you can smoothly pan at any speed.
