    Me too. I had not thought of that either.

    (Though that spoils the idea of just a tiny cord curled up in your pocket. And would need a tiny ballhead to work best.)

    You want an external stabiliser? It's called a tripod.

    The Sigma OS lenses are stabilised with the SSM-enabled Minolta AF bodies such as the dynax 7.
    There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

    How about duct taping two hard drives together at appropriate angles and running 12 volts to them?

    There was a gyro stabiliser that attached to the tripod socket - if I can ever remember the name of it, I'll find and post a link.

I am a die hard Nikon user and it's good that they retain the F mount until today but doing so they are creating quite number of incompatibilities in recent years. Beginning with the G lenses and then AF-S lenses.
