Just a thought: Is it possible that the characteristic looping
returns of the light trail in normal camera jitter are partly
due to gravity? In free fall there is no restoring force, so
excursions of the camera off-axis will perhaps not be self-
correcting in quite the same way. Could this lead to more linear
and less loopy-looking trails?
