A $20 pistol-grip helps quite a bit when trying to get a steady shot when you are using your camera`s viewfinder. Stabilized lenses are also a big help.

Long-dormant thread, but I'll throw in my two cents' worth (1.8 cents USAnian). I took a chance and bought a Laing P-04s handheld stabilizer. It cost me less than $300, and it's been surprisingly good -- quick and easy to balance, and yields nice smooth shots.

One tip: the forward-and-back adjustment is a bit crude (rack-and-pinion rather than threaded rod). I added some large washers and a nut to the counterweight thing on the front to help in fine balancing.
