Pan - The camera moves from one side to the other
Tilt - The camera moves up or down
Zoom - The camera stays still, and, by adjusting the lens, the picture zooms in and out
Tracking - The camera follows the motion by either panning, tilting, or trucking (physically moving the entire camera along with the action)
