  Trucking shot, dolly shot, tracking shot

A camera fastened to a tripod is moved evenly while keeping the object within the frame. In a trucking shot the camera stays put, in a tracking shot both the object and the camera move.

Which one is presented in the accompanying example (see the video clip)?

Ponder on the differences of expression of a trucking shot /tracking shot comparing them to possible options:

  1. The place of the camera is changed and the shots are edited to form a scene.

  2. The object is followed by panning.
