    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.

    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.
