Well, if there's really no other option, taking a flyer on a slow shutter speed might be better than making no attempt at all. But yeah, I'd say that even 1/25 is really stretching it for most people with a MF SLR.

If you're shooting in a forest, of course, every fallen stick is a potential monopod.
