The video:

http://www.instructables.com/id/1-Camera-Image-Stabilizer/

Chanced upon this video on the internet and it show using a string tie to a bolt at 1 end and a dish washer on the other. Attached the bolt to the camera then use your feet to step on the dish washer. Thus, help stabilize the camera like a monopod

Wonder if anyone tried this method before and does it help?

Cheers! :D

Yeah, it was already posted on here a year or two ago. It's ok for quick snapshots with a lighter camera, but a monopod is still better. :)

i used it on my 80-200 when I didnt have a battery grip and it was a great help. I used the SAF boot lace (credit, so free) tied to a screw ($1.50 for 3) you can buy at the DIY shop. youll get used to it fast and it takes up alot less space than a monopod (i have a monopod too) but it depends on how you view yourself stepping on strings in public coz stepping on the string can get you quite some attention. ;) but its lightweight, cheap and easily replaced.
