Don't extend the tripod. My small travel tripod won't hold my a580 when extended, but does remain somewhat stable when the legs aren't extended.

Or, find locations where you can put the camera down on a stable object instead of using a tripod. Even if the object can't hold the camera, you can still brace the camera against it for more stability.

Finally, it might just be easier to rely on stabilization and good technique, or bump the ISO up a bit and rely on MFNR to retain some decent image quality. Of course, noise is never good, but it takes a lot of noise to really destroy an image if you're just viewing the pictures on monitors or making small prints.

Well. the a57 fits into my old/new bag but the travel tripod I HAVE wont hold the camera.
