Originally posted by Kit With a heavy lens, I can go down to about 1/30 and that's about the slowest I can do handheld. I think it also depends on the individual. Some claim they can handhold up to 1 sec.......hahaha;p

but should use tripod, why take chance? unless no tripod.
Rangefinders can be hand held at a lower speed without much problems.
Tripods are nice, but they are a chore to carry around, especially when travelling. And sometimes, you don't have time to setup a tripod, or you find that there's not enough space in front of you to setup a tripod (like on a narrow walkway with a valley below you).
