Ok, shutterbug, you need to keep your camera from shaking, but there's no tripod in sight. Relax--you can still get the perfect shot. Here a couple easy tricks to help you get a steady shot without a tripod.
You will need:
-a piece of string as tall as you
-a quarter inch bolt
Tip: If you can't tie the string directly to your camera, tie it to a quarter-inch bolt and screw the bolt into the camera's tripod attachment.
