    I did get some Holga scans, but all of my hand-held pictures come out blurry like this:

    I do hold it very well and I hold it very still...now I know I know...it's a holga, but it seems like I can't seem to get ANY decent hand-held shots. 70% or so of my EOS pictures come out ok.

    I wanted to get some of these type of results:

    Should I get another Holga? I know that they're all different. Is there anything I can do for handheld shots? Or just carry my tripod everywhere I go?

    That looks like camera shake. Regardless of how steady you hold it in, bulb mode you will shake the image. In shutter mode however the Holga fires at 1/125th which is plenty and then some for sharp (and I use that word loosely) hand held pictures
