    Now this is something really good.
    I think many of us would benefit from this technique.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Until i open 100% on laptop hahahahhaa...
    the amount of shake is still pretty decent imo, might put up later if i'm not lazy.

    but the technique is not like what steve says: relaxed. I was straining quite a bit to get it stable due to the smaller size of my camera.

    haha i see!
    actually his technique, with grip and no grip, there is a difference.
    i feel that when there is a grip, it is easier to support on your shoulder because the grip give extra height which means stability unless the person got short neck. =X

    The centre of gravity thing is important, something I normally do with left knee slightly bent forward. Someone actually remarked that I looked like someone about to do taekwondo or something. LOL. Anyway, find the right technique that works for you especially in lowlight instances.

    Beside breath holding, another thing to remember is after pressing the shutter button, dont immediately release it. Hold it for a while then release.
