I was amazed to see that this shot ended up being 400mm handheld at 1/4 second. No tripod, no rest of any kind. OK, it is an IS lens, but the"trick" was that I bursted and just held the shutter button down for 7 frames. Seems to work pretty well - at least for the web.

You can take my 100-400 L away when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers.

Scott, that's a nice picture. I like the "pastel" look of the picture.

The picthure came out really nice though.

Yep, is a great trick and I do use it quite often (UK, say no more). The first shot is always poor and the last one if usually pretty bad. I usually find the second shot is the best, so tend to only shoot three - four frames this way.

Cheers

Out of my burst of 7 I had 3 that were about equal to the above pic. The first 2 were bad, but the next 3 were good and then he moved noticably so I instinctively tracked hime and blew the last one.

Granted though, 1/4 second is a bit extreme. The trick works a lot better when you need 1/500 but can only get 1/250 - chances are very good that you *will* get a good shot then. But 1/4 on an animal this close on a windy day would have shown problems even with a tripod. I've done stationary objects or large distant birds fairly reliable at 400mm 1/25 - again remember that the lens is IS, so that's really only 2 stops slow since 1/100 is just about always good at 400mm.
