Overusing the zoom feature of a video camera is the sign of an amateur.  But there are times when you want to make a camera move.  If I’m in a location where I can put my hands on a wheel chair, I find it makes a handy device – kind of like a portable poor man’s dolly or steady cam.  You can usually enlist an interested bystander to push you while you roll the camera.  Shopping carts can also come in handy.
