    I'm hoping you guys can help. I have my video set for 720p60, but when uploading to Facebook or Vimeo, I'm getting incredibly jerky panning. Youtube isn't quite as bad, but still noticeable. It's very smooth in my source. How are you guys uploading (or recording) video with the camera?

    Example: https://vimeo.com/103810378
    My source looks nothing like this as far as the shuddery panning goes.

    I'd use 24fps and upload a lossless video codec like .avi, and just stop uploading to facebook altogether unless you enjoy frustration. Just link the video from Youtube on your facebook page.

    It actually looks to be skipping frames, what you render to upload is probably best at 30fps, they can't show it online at 60fps.
    25fps might be jiggled into 30fps too, not sure though.

    Looks not too bad to me. Sometimes it can be the playback software and the speed/memory of your graphics card. Try downloading the video then run it off your computer. It also will depend on the speed of your internet.

    All panning really needs to be extremely slow for it to look right.

    That is a Vimeo artefact I am sure even You tube i find a bit hit a miss sometimes. That is a nice boat place there.
