DBS Walk & Follow or Active Camera?

I've only used Active Camera, briefly before losing all interest in such things, but Walk & Follow has it's devotees too.

I'd say there's so little between them, it comes down to who is paying: if you are, get the most expensive - if your company/organisation is, get the cheapest!

Thanks. I've actually enjoyed Active Camera before.

Anyhow, light1's F1 view utility is also great, for a freebie.

I have Walk and Follow.  The usefulness of this utility is very subjective.  I like the ability to change the viewing location for exploring airports and also viewing you own aircraft from any angle.  If you are a fan of screen shots, this utility opens up almost limitless opportunities. See a couple of screenies below:

The downside is that the user interface is a combination of keystrokes that can preoccupy the attention of the sim-pilot.  That is why I use primarily on the ground.


If I'm not mistaken, Active Camera has "head shake" as an option, which does add a more dynamic feel to the simming experience.  I was not overly impressed when I tried their demo version.  There also has been some forum comment about their product support.  It would be good to hear from people who know the utility well.
