Thanks for your comments Trevor.

I have found that my percentage of in focus images increases when I use a monopod. All of these were taken with a very small monopod.

No other device was used, I can get the mono pod in to position very quickly.

Awesome pictures, there are some great images submitted to this
site but everytime I see yours Bob I suffer almost disbelief.

I received my DCR-150 at the weekend and only had a quick tryout
but the first thing that struck me was the need for steadyness.
Can you tell us what you use in the way of tripods, big and small
or monopods.

Next question if you are using some kind of steadying device,
doesn't the object tend to fly away in the time it takes you to get
into position.
