Macro work is extremely difficult, handheld. I still follow the "old school" rule that a tripod is used, and when used, stabilization is turned off. Depending on which camera you use, use either Shutter Delay, Self Timer or an external shutter release cable to eliminate any movement caused by touching the camera. This method has not failed me.

I agree. I know what needs to be done to get the best results. Sometimes I take the more rigorous approach. More often, I'm pretty casual about it. Just depends on where I am and what I'm trying to accomplish. I have a lot of detail photos of small wildflowers, taken handheld, that I'm pretty proud of.
