@triem23 gave some good advice above on camera movement, and rigging. I wonder is it A) possible or b) already done, that someone has got some pre-built camera rig presets.
@Andy001z you know well I have some prerigged cameras because 1) I talked about it in this thread, 2) I talked about it in a tutorial. :-)
Fwiw, my camera tutorial will discuss different camera rigs, but cameras is after Comp Shots, Blend Modes, Keyframing and, Masks, Mattes, Maps and Keys.
Sorry lack of sleep hitting hard.
the difference is in real life EVERYTHING stays vertical and horizontal if you are filming from a helicopter and the pilot turns left the horizon stays there, it does not move. YOU move around the horizon. your film footage shows the opposite ...you now become the HORIZON in your footage. the opposite of what is real. so folks get confused. the better "real life camera shots" keep the perspective real = always vertical and horizontal so if you try and keep this true your cam moves will be more realistic.
