HI there! I just saw a clip that included some BTS shots, and i stumbled accros a camera rig that I have`nt seen before.
This is the clip, right here, and the "accessory" in question can be seen at 07:35, 08:40 - 08:44.

That's a Libra stabilized head. It's overslung on an arm instead of underslung which is how you'd usually see it used on crane arms/wire rigs etc.

But somehow it looks like it's shaking the camera on purpose instead of stabilizing it! Sort of an in camera effect for action?

It always looks that way, because the body of the head is mounted via a wire spring plate. This shakes the head (but does not jar it ) but the camera stays very stable. If you look at the head while the shot is in progress, it seems like its all over the place, but video playback is stable.

Love the cinematography of skyfall.. I guess its intentionally shaky for action purposes!
