Bought A Rolleiflex Pistal Grip

Bought another accessory for the Rollies, a Rolleiflex pistol group. This item was not that expensive, in good condition I got it for $31 USD plus shipping and taxes. Hopefully this unit will allow me to hand hold tight head shots at 1/60th of a second. Last trip to be on the safe side I shot the 80mm lens with close up Rolleinar #1 attached at 1/125 because I was worried about camera shake. If I could shoot at 1/60 next time, it would help me a lot, I could expose the film at a slightly smaller aperture  allowing for more in depth of focus in the negs. A bit of a balancing act there, as I still want to maintain my bokeh (out of focus areas).
