    Oops.. missed that.. That would be quite a problem because I won't like to use eyepiece correction because that would mean taking off the specs just to shoot.. Very troublesome..

    Is LASIK an option?

    Try pressing the cam to your face. Acts as a third point of support in addition to your elbows.

    Considering LASIK. But I wonders if my 700+ degree will be eliminated once and for all. As I heard heavy myopia personnels may not benifit a long from LASIK

    And LASIK still not cheap....Spects is still a better solution. Besides, I look better with specs....got small eyes....

    Maybe can try increasing ISO to decrease shutter time and reduce hand shake.

    Bro, trembling hands maybe a sign of health problem. It's better that you go for full medical check-up. usually link to heart problem. If you are on oral asthma medication,the Ventolin will cause hands to tremble tt's what happenend to me so I switch to inhaler type so not that bad now. Be safe than sorry Bro.....Happy shooting!

    I am on some kind of nosal spray due to my crooked nose bone and nose problem.

    Based on wat i heard, the spray does make ur heart jumps a bit faster. Dunno abt how is this going to affect the hand. And how do we judge trembling? Holding a glass of water and see if the water surface breaks?

    But could shaking hands be due to untrained arms? I am fat and long time never exercise....but now I swims 3 times a week....slowly dieting.

    Hahaha when u are using a 300D + Grip + 70-200 2.8L, the bloody camera is like an M16. Trust me... Heavy, big and long, only this is WHITE, not black... mwahahahaha... i use to shoot dance after that hand tired like sai... den when change to 17-40 F4L macam weightless liddat... =P

    well, get a bigger camera. small/light camera will be prone to a lot of handshake, esp when pressing shutter button! this is esp so for ppl wif big hands (like me).
    When life hands u lemons.... ASK FOR TEQUILA AND SALT!
