By "shaky" I assume you mean that the image is not stable. First question is thus "Was image stabilization on?" If so and the focal length was short or medium there is the possibility of a failure in the OIS system. At long focal length the OIS system cannot keep up. At least I personally am unable to attain stable images at 20X unless I refrain from breathing. AFAIK this is normal.

1) Post a short clip so we can see what you mean.

2) Like A. J. says, try to hold as still as possible the more zoomed in you are. I once refrained from breathing from the beginning of one zoomed in closeup shot, until late 1997.

Gotta mention that detail stuff up front, bud. You kind of sent everyone on a wild goose chase. Just a short one, though.
