I used to drag my tripod around all the time shooting HDR imagery, until one day I got lazy and left the tripod in the car.
I came across a scene that would really benefit from HDR, although I wasn't in a balloon, but I did shoot the scene hand held and it worked perfectly thanks to Photomatix align features feature.
My secret is to use a 2 second timer and have the camera take 3 shots one right after another without pressing the shutter button. This enables me to hold the camera as still as possible.
I also program a custom setting on my Canon so I can be in HDR shooting mode and back to single shot mode with the touch of a button.
