Long exposure hand holding techniques
1

With IS improving fast, people have been reporting reliable multiple second hand held exposures. I wonder what kind of holding techniques they use.

When it approaches 1 second, my holding technique is completely gone. Investigations have shown that it is because I tend to perform larger and larger hand movements when I cannot see an image to aim. Then the aim wanders off far enough to saturate the IS.

I have had over 150mm FL shots taken at 1/5s to reasonable satisfaction. But 7.5mm past a second? No way. The tele improvements are multiple stops superior to the WA improvements, mostly because absolute time approaching 1s is no-no whatever the FL.

How do you keep the aim true for a long time without visual feedback?
