As for holding it steady i used a pistol grip tripod head and held the 
iLeica to it with the rubber band 
that comes with a cluster of broccoli, it held it pretty firmly. Ironic 
thing was that in the middle of the 
shoot, my camera rang and it was the Apple store asking about new iLeica. I 
did a "facetime" video
chat with the store and showed them the setup and they showed me about 90 
people mobbing 
the place.

It's a big step up from the iLeica 3, but less from the 3g which also has 
tap-to-focus. the big
difference is speed -- shutter lag is nearly gone, though focus lag still
