Everyday it feels like point and shoot cameras are getting better, but it also seems like they are getting smaller too. Although the size is making it more convenient for people to have their camera all the time, it also means that they are more difficult to handle. It can be hard to steady such a small camera.
If you are having difficulty with your small camera, you might try attaching a Gorilla Pod to it. This will give you a nice handle with which to hold your camera.
Gorilla Pods are also great because you can put your camera down and do a timed shot! A multi-tasker!
