Realistic Camera Movement using hand held track

AEdude.com posted a tutorial that uses the old technique of shooting hand held and tracking that for use in After Effects. Realistic Camera Movement is an opportunity to learn basic tracking and create realistic camera movement. One option not mentioned is shooting farther back and zooming in.

Andrew Kramer has something similar in his After Shake AE preset; it comes with a video demo that show how to change speed, intensity and rotation with slider controls. Also, there's the Handheld Camera Script by David Torno on PVC.

For more on tracking click the tag tracking and Motion tracking overview and resources in AE Help.

Update: see also Perfect Imperfection on tracking actual movement for animation, and from Dave Scotland of CGSwot, Camera shake from hand held track,
