Hello. One thing that annoys a lot of people is the 'figure of 8' slow, small camera movement that moves when the camera is idle. This can be annoying to some, such as myself, and makes long, sped up videos look as if they've been recorded by shakey cam. It would be great if this could become an optional feature. Thanks o7

Your "shakey camera" is, in fact, just that. Your view of space is provided by a camera drone.

Then they better make Tech 2 versions that don't absolutely suck.

In all seriousness, with lore aside, it really does look bad on sped up footage. There should be some way of toggling it, and not give in to the lore, just because it makes more sense.

Good point and this ties into CCP's plan to make it easier for content creators to produce videos. I'll see what I can do.

I've always found all of the wobble mechanics annoying.

I remember when they changed the pos shield from a perfectly fine fixed field, to that ridiculous wobbling bubble. It made absolutely no sense whatsoever.
