It depend on the subjects that you are taking. Without tripod, you can make use of the surrounding support such as bench (if any) etc.
Beside setting between 3 - 4 sec, you may try to set low aperture value F2.8 to F4 depending on the zoom. If too bright, try to have shorter shutter speed such as 1 sec etc. You may also try with high aperture value such as F8 to F14 but you will required a longer exposure from 5 sec to 10 sec.

A40 can take Ridata 256MB or 128MB (I presumed 125MB is a typo error). Widest aperture for wide and tele, please refer to the user guide. There are 2 aperture settings for each lens setting.
