    Well... there are a couple of ways to reduce motion blur in your shots.

    1) Using of tripod (can go shutter speed can go as low as you wanted to)
    2) using of monopod (improve in the stability of the shots but can never achieve what a tripod can do. And not everyone like to use this method and equipment).

    Another way was to increase your ISO so as to step up your shutter speed. The faster the shutter speed the less probability for motion blur.

    Yet another method was as many had suggested, use flash. An external flash would be what you might want to invest in. But do take note of the following when investing an external flash,

    1) Budget
    2) tilt and rotable head.
    3) Ergonomic of the flash.
    4) Strenght of the flash
    5) Weight

    Hope it helps.

    Some time when you unable to use flash or it is getting dark, a len with bigger aperture, higher ISO and increase shutter speed will help to reduce blur when hand held cam.

    I think you're referring to camera shake here rather than motion blur. Motion blur refers to the blurness caused by moving subject, whereas camera shake refers to blurness caused by movement in the camera itself. Using tripod will not reduce motion blur but will reduce camera shake.

    So for the benefit of TS, to summarize what had been discussed above, here are the ways to reduce camera shake:

    1. Follow the 1/(focal length) rule of thumb. This can be acheive by opening up the aperture.
    2. If the lighting is poor and you can't get the desire shutter speed, you can increase sensitivity by upping the ISO.
    3. You can also use a tripod or monopod, plus timer/remote trigger/shutter string. One thing to add here is you might also want to pay attention to vibration due to mirror slap. If this is the case you can use the MLU function (if your camera has it).
    4. You can use a flash.

    Besides the things already mentioned above, other ways would be:

    5. Use a "vibration reduction" lens or body; this will give you up to 3 extra stops.
    6. Improve your hand holding & shutter pressing technique - tuck in your elbows and anchor the camera to your forehead (assuming you're using an DSLR with a view finder). Roll your finger to depress the shutter release rather than pushing down.
    7. Use other nearby objects to help you steady your camera - e.g. bracing a lamp post, resting your camera on a railing, etc.

    Cheers.

    5. Use a "vibration reduction" lens or body; this will give you up to 3 extra stops. but very ineffective at long focal lengths e.g. >100mm and slow shutter speeds e.g. >1 second
