The blades are small and light, so very little mass pushing the camera this way or that. Plus the mass of the camera prevents vibration.

a 645 -- does that have a mirror? If so, that's a lot of mass slamming around. Get thee a monopod and be happy.
No mirror in the GA645, it's a rangefinder. A monopod would suck the life out of a GA645. It's built to be a p & s.
