I've been using a monopod on a project for a loose feel but not so loose as handheld and it's working exceptionally well. I've also used bungee mounts without a head for the same sort of feel. Anyone else do this or have similar techniques for adding some life to a shot?

you usin' a video cam? One method Is to build a counterweight "steady" cam. Using steel pipe, make a "T" handle and put a camera mount on one end and a 5 lb lifting weight on the other. Cheap, effective.
