    Err..., can it be used for steady hands in photography? We need Guinea Pig here .

    Tell me about it!!.. I'm attending RT because I failed chin-up, then the next day after the sessions I will have trouble soldering 0402 components!! Will clapping work?

    I did apply the M16 technique on my digicam shooting (Was a markman.. )..but it seems I cant solve the "blur" in my pic..even with O.I.S. on...
    i guess due to the weight distribution, length and holding method of a rifle is inherently different from that of a camera, only the breathing part helps, other than that, i doubt nothing else would really help much.

    Breathing Techniques.
    Stable and comfortable positions.
    Don't snap the trigger .. er ... shutter button.

    Default techniques

    put your digicam as close to your body as possible

    do not frame with the LCD, outstreching your arms and you have a shaking problem, if possible, shoot with your eye on the viewfinder, camera pressed against the fat checks of the face.

    control your excitement and depress your shutter half-way to first obtain a focus-lock, most of the time you need to do this by feel as you may not get the information on your viewfinder, and only depress your shutter when you naturally breathe out.

    Just try and let us hear whether it is true or myth . That's what I hear from forum that doing overclocking, and sometimes need precision soldering.

    Just one strong clap, and you are ready to go...

    Just to add, rest your forehead against the camera when looking thru the VF.
    And to "squeeze" the shutter and not a pushing motion while depressing the button.

    I think it may work but only for a short while as the blood gushes to the hand after the clap.. After that, you may need another clap.. My colleagues will think I've suddenly gone mad! hahaha..

    5mg valium should do the trick.

    Then does it mean that if you are taking rapid exposures, you need to applaud?

    My, I am having a funny scenario in my brain now. Imagine a rows of photographers stationed somewhere to grab a shot of something....then all clap at the same time....stopped the clapping, then back to the lens..

    woot!

    Another thing i juz found out : For pple wearing specs, its kinda diff to hold the EV close/stick to ur spec lens. The spec will move and it might scatch the lens....

    And worse, I cant take contact lenses....

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    Shoot without glasses..short sighted/myopia is problem of not able to see far clearly..when u shoot, remove ur glasses and stick close to the viewfinder to compose..use diopter adjustment to fine tune..it should work, just a matter of getting use..
    This is an electronic post which requires no signature.

    Oh ya...why i dont tot of that....

    But think it will be hard for a spect person like me to remove and put on (or vice versa) my spect just for shots...

    But my degree is damn high, 700+ per eye....
