    One of the main things that made it hard for me to watch the first movie (apart from the ugly TF faces) is the horrible jitter cam for any type of action scene. Does RotF still use jitter cam a lot or did Bay think better of it?

    Thanks :)

    Just go watch the movie and find out yourself. It ain't that expensive. But to answer your question: Yes, it's a little better.

    The presence of jitter cam makes a movie nigh unwatchable IMO. Or at least determines if I'm going to wait for DVD.

    There was some shaky cam going on, but nearly to the levels of scene ruining. It really only gets bad when there's a massive explosion going on, so you're not missing much. In fact, the camera is fairly sedated more often than not.

    I found the camera work improved over the first movie. More nice scenes with the camera pulled back, staying steady, looking at what was happening, less spinning insano-bay-cam with vibroshock.
