  9. 9. TRACK Track is similar to the dolly shot, but stays consistent, as it stays the same distance from the action and uses mainly the side-to-side movemnet.
  10. 10. STEADICAM Steadicam is a piece of equipment that allows you to be able to use the camera handheld, but keeping it still at the same time.
