With a long lens shouldn't you have one hand under the lens?

Mirror lenses are SHORT! We've never had anything else physically longer than ~200 zoom with 2x converter, yes that DOES get a hand under it. Still two hands holding everything though. And "replaying" my normal technique - two hands for everything, even 28mm.

Has anyone here tried a camera with image stabilisation? This seems to be becoming more common on digital cameras. I've been looking at the Canon PowerShot S3 IS. With 12x optical zoom it has a maximum focal length of 432mm which should, in theory, be more useful with the camera's optical image stabilisation, but I haven't tried it.

Doesn't come on a T70. I don't know of any film camera which has it, although if your price range is astronomic you might find something.
