m curious about something I think I've noticed in films made in the last few
years and want to know if my perpections are accurate or if I'm simply wrong.
It strikes me that when films depict lateral camera movement (especially in
pan shots) in recent years, there's a blurring effect that I have not noticed
in films of the past.  The effect is rather like whipping your head suddenly
around. so:
        1) Am I seeing things (and if so, should I contact a specialist)?
        2) If it is a real phenomenon, why does it occur, especially in more
                recent films?  (I would guess that it had something to do
                with the movement of the camera itself, but wonder if it
                could be affect the horizontal projection tables that a
                writer referred to a week or two ago?)
