Ian Jones's comment:
The following is a classification of Hou Hsiao-Hsien's Millennium Mambo (2001) in terms of camera dynamics. The key to the eight catetories I use is as follows:

T+P - Prominent tilt(s) combined with prominent pan(s), from fixed camera position.

T+Pw/MR - Prominent tilt(s) combined with prominent pan(s), from fixed camera position, but also contains lengthy sections with only minor reframing or static camera (the camera is not in constant drift).

Tilt - Prominent tilt(s), with either no pans or only minor reframing pans, from fixed camera position.

Pan - Prominent pan(s), with either no tilts or only minor reframing tilts, from fixed camera position.

S or MR - Static camera, or fixed position with only minor reframing.

ST+TP - Sideways track (left to right and/or right to left; the former is more common), combined with prominent tilts and prominent pans.

V-M - Vehicle-mounted shot, acting as either an elaborate forwards track or elaborate backwards track. These are often unsteady, but contain no major panning or tilting.

Irreg - Irregular. See shot notes for further specifics on each shot.
