    Default Re: Trembling hands

    My hand trembling too, possble too much caffeinated drinks, or most of the time over straining or over grip the camera.. sometime to hold it steady against my chest and holding my breath too long....my hand will shake....haha!! so take it easy, hold your cam but don't over tighten the grip, just brace against your chest, breath normal.

    Go see a doc to ease off the worry

    Take care!

    Binzeto...if you have already tucked your hands to your chest and kept your arms close to your body and you still tremble then it is not weak arms/hands. Some people encounter it as it has something to do with the nerves.

    Seriously, this forum is not the proper place to be double guessing your under lying issues. I too have weak arms but my hands do not tremble despite drinking 12 cups of coffee everyday. See your family doctor and get a proper diagnosis than to wonder everyday what is wrong with your hands. Early detection = complete cure. Late detection = no cure. You know the drill.

    That's my two cents worth.

    Trembling hands might be a genetic problem and not necessarily strenght related, consult ur doctor if u find it a big problem. But try not to let it affect u too much though......

    Anyway, if u wanna minimise the effect of the trembling u may wanna try resting ur shooting arm against the front of ur body. In my case it eliminates much of the handshake.

    Worst come to worst, u can always buy more VR lenses lor......

    i suggest you try to shift your supportive hand from right to left.

    and last thing is don't hold your camera too firm. relax.

    Save your $ from the witchdoctors, Sin seh or whatever physiotherapist.

    I totally agreed with Fotophilic. The left hand should also be tuck into the body for more support and stability and the cam is sitting/resting nicely on your left palm. The right hand is gently holding , not firm gripping, & index finger on the shutter button, that way less trembling

    Reminds me of the golf grip. Same principle-Too firm a grip the ball fly everywhere but straight. Relax grip it went 300yrd

    My Dear DrSpock...

    This guy's hands are trembling even when not holding a camera. With a firm grip, your hands do not tremble. Trembling is not a good sign for a young man in his early thirties. After you rule out all probabilities, whatever outcome you obtain, however improbable is sure to be the answer.

    Lets hope it's nothing serious.

    U can tried seeing doctor. Anyway, it's free. Not to discourage u, it's no use one unless u got Parkinson's Disease which I am very very doubtful. U can be cured ( told by a doctor ) if I am not mistaken but it's really not cheap as what the doctor say. And he asked me why do I want to bother if it's not affecting my daily life ?

    I had 1 friend hand also trembling. He did not notice himself until told by one old man when eating in a coffee shop.

    He told me something about the blood circulation & went to see a chinese doctor. Now, ok already.

    Sometime, one should not bother so much & just take it easy. The more u bother, the worst it will be.

    I got friends critisize me for my hand trembling but so what ? Do u think they are immortal ?

    Note that some medicine will caused this problem.

    Hi guys, i went to my company doctor just now. He says my hands are fine and a bit of shakiness is common. Just that i got weak muscles. Ask me to exercise. He got me to do the hold a pen and stretch out my arm test. Asking him why i tremble when taking shoots with my cam, he says that most probably when i try to stop my hands from swaying/shaking, i exert more strength in my hold, grip and keeping my arms close to my body, so my muscles got tired while i took a longer time with aiming and trying to stop the sway/shake therefore resulting in the slight tremble. So when i got home, i ask my sister to observe my hold and grip on the camera when i aim, and it was as what the doctor says. Now all i need to do is strengthen my muscles so they don't tired out that easily.
