there is. i can only think of two kinds of photography for such panning
firstly is car photography, the camera is mounted to the car, and the car moves.
essentially it's moving at the same speed as the car so since it's moving, it's considered panning bah
the other type is astro photography. where 30 seconds seems to be very slow
especially if want to capture stars
but hey, it's all about the type of image you want to achieve
