NXT camera dolly

Whenever I made images and movies of my NXT robots previously, I always have been unsatisfied with the quality of my recordings. Hence, I decided to build a stable camera stand to avoid at least wiggly images. Of course, as a NXT builder I ended up not with a simple stand but with a programmable camera car on rails (which is, as I learned, in lingo called a "camera dolly"):

 

I am still lacking the skills to produce such excellent robot movies like some of my NXT colleagues; but at least I might be able to make some with smoother tracking shots now.

Now annoyed.. put up with the 'noise' in order to see if the results were any good... SO WHERE'S THE CAM FOOTAGE!?!

(I exaggerate, not that annoyed, bit frustrated though..)
