Thanks All,

I am over fifty and take a lot of medication and I do have heavy heartbeats.  I have been trying to find a more stable position for standing handheld shots, it had seem that I was waivering more than usual.  I have even become comfortable with a strange method of putting the 70-200 in my left palm turned up, elbow tucked into my body ( yes closer to my heart).  If some of you are watching for this,  do not expect to see a pulse type movement through the lens.  It is more of a subtle de-stabilizing movement that can actually move me in a circular motion as I try to compensate. It appears more (to me) as if i was shooting in a slight wind,  but in the end my heartbeat was the cause.
