if you record fights in eve you typically edit the video to speed it up. Thats when the build-in camera sway becomes very annoying and editing it out of the clip is a lot of work.

just take a look at the HED-GP battle replay ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LETlBYa3geI ) - i think we all agree that it would work much nicer and be easier to view if there wouldn't be this cam movement.

please add an option to turn it off (or incorporate it in the "camera shake" option, since both are somewhat connected)

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

You refer to the tracking camera? Which you can turn of by pressing "C" or by clicking the top left most corner in your "Selected Items" window and remove the check from "Tracking Camera: Track selected item"?

My ridicule, heavy criticism and general pale outlook about your or CCP's ideas is nothing but an encouragement to prove me wrong. Give it a try.

no i am not talking about the tracking camera. Camera is always there even if nothing moves the camera.

Ah, Ok, I see what you mean. True, the wobbling is a bit disconcerting. Tho, you watch your ship through a camera drone, which needs to adjust it's position all the time. Maybe CCP should hire a Nokia guy to incorporate even better optical image stabilization. Roll

right. you don't even notice it if you play the game. but as soon you make a video it becomes a problem
