    Default Sony Handycam DCR-SR30 Camcorder extreme image shaking

    Hello there
    Just recently, while filming anything that requires zooming in (mainly aircraft is what I'm using it for), I am getting a side-to-side violent shaking on the image. It is making the camcorder completely un-usable and completely ruining all footage. I don't use a tripod or anything, and I generally have a steady hand, so it's definately not me shaking (it still shakes when I put it on the floor and am not touching it). Please see the attached youtube link of the sort of film I am getting (some of it is over-zoomed just to emphasise the issue). Does anybody have any ideas as to the best course of action, or for any cures?
    Any help would be very much appreciated!
    Many thanks
    Tom

    My guess is the image stabilization is trying to keep up with a moving image and actually making matters worse. Or, as someone has posted on your TT, the IS has gone bad.
