Re: Handheld stability mystery

Consider the position and "thrust-line" of the shutter-finger. I've found small changes in the location and angle of the shutter button make a large difference in the tension of my right hand and affect shutter release motion.

I've tried using a wired cable remote with a micro-switch that could be placed in various locations to verify that position is important. I don't find the 'forward tilt' on many of the DSLR bodies to be advantageous for smooth shutter release.

Using the shutter button accessory that screwed in to the threaded cable release socket on the Spotmatic's shutter button was the most comfortable arrangement I've used. I've considered gluing something similar to my DSLR bodies.
