I have had intentional tremors for several years and it is getting worse. I have noticed the time goes by it's more and more difficult to handhold my cameras without help. I've tried different kinds of grips, weights, wrist supports, arm supports, and even handheld gimbals. And as you know, monopods or tripods can be cumbersome or not allowed in some public ...

The answers here are quite good and I hope you find value in investigating these venues. In the end a good tripod with a remote shutter release would provide great value. A remote shutter would either be wireless, or it would be wired but the wire would only have limited impact on the tremors that are transmitted to the camera. But for handheld shooting it ...

You might wish to investigate the professional film making options in this area. There are a number of vest-based ('body mounted') camera stability platforms out there, many now for DSLRs, which have seen use as replacements for dedicated video cameras. Do a quick search for body mounted camera stabilizers or brands like FLYCAM or GlideCam. These are ...

Gyrogear is a company trying to develop a wearable glove which can help to stabilize the tremor. The glove works by using the gyroscopic effect ...

The tremor in Parkinson Disease is a resting tremor. When you are actively using your muscles, tremor should be absent. Other ...

You could use a mono pod, that will reduce a lot of shaking. They can be quite small and compact when folded down. What may also help is using a remote shutter (cable or wireless). A steady cam rig, used for professional handheld video may help. There are several sorts. But I understand some work by adding weights and moving the center of gravity, other work ...

If your tremors are too severe for existing Image Stabilization systems to compensate, you might want to look into having something made, since I don't know of an existing device such as you describe. Start with the devices musicians sometimes use to hold a harmonica while they play a guitar with their hands -- those will give you the correct type of body ...
