    I have "better" idea. Two gyroscopes in 90 degree angles. ;)

    Interesting idea...somewhat similar to the concept of using a "gunstock" type support for long lenses.
    Thanks

    That has even been done. Something like very unpractical comes to my mind. There are small gyroscopes available, they are used in positioning systems as gps is very easy to jam. However small size don't imply light weight or small energy consumption.

    For posting YouTube videos in the forum, just copy the URL from your browsers address bar and paste it in here. The forum will automatically embed the video then. YouTube's own embedding codes don't work here.

    Edit: To the tip - already done this. Problem is in most cases when I'm in low light my shutter speed is not limited by camera shake, but rather by moving subjects which I want / need to freeze. Still a handy tip for some situations.
