I've seen the tip of pulling down on the camera strap with a P&S to help stabilize the shot. I might have to give this a try.

I've seen this before. Some people suggest chain though. Don't recall why. Maybe it's sturdier. I should do this tomorrow.

Not a bad idea...I'll try this out myself. I may even make two versions...one for standing and one for kneeling on one knee. The chain was probably suggested because a string may break with too much tension.

This will just have to be the end of all IS lenses. Yeah right.
This does look like it will help. For 15 minutes and a buck why not---
