I am frequently shooting Macro pics, specially with add on Macro Vitcon lens 0.5X. The shake factor becomes very critical at full Digital Zoom 11x.
How to eliminate the shake factor, I cannot fix a tri/mono-pod in middle of shrubs, bushes and lakes.
Should I use a tripod to keep myself on stable ground and zoom in closer to the subject from a larger distance.
Recently my entire macro shoot was spoiled by blurring caused by my hands shaking.
