Can someone give me some good tutorials or advice on how to do a more realistic first person animation in maya?

I have this animation I am working on. Don't worry about the poor quality the final render will be rendered in 720p I just needed some quick advice. I like most everything about it except the camera animation is not as perfect as I would like it to be. It is supposed to be first person so the camera is basically a person which I think will be obvious. Anyways any advice would be great here is the link to the short demo:

maybe you could make the cam movement more fluid and less like a robot. What I mean by this moving it in two or more axis at the same time and not just panning or rotating one at a time as a separate movement. The zoom in and zoom out on the locked keyboard was a little awkward too.
Your textures are nice and the lighting seems good.

What kind of camera do you suggest using? I am using maya.
