    Geez and I use to suffer with F 3.5 lenses and 25 ASA film.. and that
    speedy stuff ASA 64. Ccntankerous flash systems..... Somehow we made
    all work. Work at it. You should be able to hold a point and shoot
    at 140 with a shutter speed at 1/60 sec. Its all relative.

    Except if it is a cloudy day and you are shooting at 85mm it is 1/30 sec on
    the Nikon 8400. I was taking more store front pictures yesterday afternoon.
    One I had to shot multiple times to be sure I got a good one. Those were
    taking at 1/30 sec. One I shot once and it is blurry. That one took at
    1/48.2 sec.

  3. Don,

    Remember that the Nikon range have a BSS - best shot selector - function
    which selects the sharpest images from a sequence of shots.

    Building on the monopod concept, but without a monopod, consider this.
    Attach a strong cord to the Tripod Screw. Put a loop on one end of the
    cord that will allow you to put your foot through it. Raise the camera
    until there is considerable tension in the cord.
    Extremely light, extremely cheap and very effective.

    That works well. I've tried it, and it definitely gets rid of most
    hand-jitters.

    And very portable. I have one in my bag, all the time, but it fits in a
    pocket so much better than a monopod...
