Issue with Camera Shake/Vibrations for the Canon R800



I have a question about my new Canon R800 that I purchased online a few months ago. I use this camcorder quite often to film trains, however, I've noticed that a lot of my videos are comeing out with a very high amount of camera shake, in some cases it's hard to even watch. Obviously there is going to be some shakiness, but I have not had a camcorder in the past that has shaken or at least shown it as much as this one. Does this have something to do with my settings (I've tried almost everything) or is this the result I'm going to keep recieving? I also bought a very sturdy tripod to try and combat the problem but it didn't help much. 


Any feedback is appreciated!

I, too, shoot railway videos. Make sure that when using a tripod you have all the stabilization turned off. The low frequency vibration from the trains travels through the ground and up the tripod legs, and the camera, thinking this is camera shake, will try to stabilize it causing picture wobble.

Post editing software is the best method to stabilized the video.


Or other techniques outlined here.  " "


I do not know how make the fastest shutter speed in video is one of recommended solution.
