    I think tripods are useful.

    Don't think that is the way to use it.

     

    Tripods are very usefull but one is not alway in the position to use one.

    Practice shooting handheld is also very useful.

    Show me a perfect handheld shot with a non shouldermount camera.

     

    I have a pretty steady hand, but still use a Figrig or monopod or a string.

    Perfect?  Where'd that qualifier come from?  I'm talking 'usable' here.  You get perfect out of WS?  I've always assumed it's purpose was to go from unusable to usable, not all the way to perfect.

    "Practice untill you get it perfect"?

     

    I had some hand held shots, panning objects in a museum, somewhat wobbly.

    I used WS and they were perfect. Almost looked like panning over a photograph.

    I have tested this in the past with various stabilisation software, and the second application of the stabiliser has never improved matters, and often made things worse.  Some third party stabilisers in the past actually warned against doing this.

     

    There are limits to what any stabiliser can achieve.  Inevitably there is motion during the period that the shutter is open to shoot an individual frame/field, and this cannot be removed.   

     

    Panning shots are often the worst after stabilisation, for me.  Probably because I am not good at panning hand-held.  Practice has not made me perfect!
