    Hi wysoczanski,

    for the steady hands, it's all in the breathing method. Read up on this, it's also similar to weapon handling where one squeezes the trigger as you breathe out. Try it out, hold the camera in both hands properly, breathe in and as you exhale slowly, you depress the shutter button.

    Now, the next query, you won't need a flash if the subject is properly illuminated with good lighting... if it's an indoor even or when the light is poor, then you may need a flash.

    well yes to weight lifting but i can hold the camera fine just my hands are extremely shaky i dont know if its just the fact im not usd to the whole camera thing yet....

    as to the breathing method i have tried it with some great shots i guess just more practice and more time breathing calmly may help me out...i paintball and know how all that fun stuff works as do my family we own a crossbow so breathing is quiet a thing i know

    thanks for the help hope to learn more
