    A rough gauge would be 1/focal length for 'steady' shots. No, if you have unstable hand, you should use a tripod, not use modes to compensate for it. Give it a try, practice shooting and you can control all the settings one day.

    A monopod is also pretty helpful to stabilise the camera and lens...

    try to maintain the minimum shutter speed to the length of the lens to keep movement to a min.

    1/50 and faster - 50mm
    1/125 and faster - 125mm
    1/300 and faster - 300mm

    Correct holding of the SLR will reduce camera shakes. You should be comfortable holding the camera as this will also help reduce shakes. Worst case use a tripod or monopod.
