Breaking my hand-holding records with 0.3, 0.6, 0.8 and 1 sec shutter

Over the new year, I have broken several records of my own in hand-holding shots with my two lens and my K100D

1. Pentax FA 50 f/1.4 (AF)
Thoughts on Pentax FA 50 f/1.4 - Hin's Tech Corner

2. Vivitar 24mm f/2.8 (MF)
My test shots on a $5 dollar lens manual lens that I got in ebay, I get way lucky into the new year. It is my 21 limited in disguise. I can't afford gear and this one will do it for me

Here are few shots with exif. They are by no means great shots but my attempt to break my own shutter records without tripod. My previous record is 0.5 sec shutter on a shot that I like but now, I many shots over 0.5 sec shutter that I like with my K100D. Of course, the SR is turned on. No tripod of any kind is used thought I do have my ultrapod II with me on that night

I am very happy with my 1st day in 2008 breaking all of my previous hand holding records

My previous shutter records with 1/2 sec with SR and 1/4 second without SR on a p&s:

I will write more as I have way over 1200 pictures to tilt back for the tilting problems that I have with my k100D.
Thanks,
Hin

I forget to post few 1 second shutter shot that I have, not great by any means. Just the silly me pushing the SR and my shutter release without a tripod:

#10 with vivitar 24mm f/2.8
1 sec, f/2.8, 24mm, iso 800, 0 Ev (this is the one I like though the composition need to be pp for better view)

#11 with Pentax fa 50 f/1.4
1 sec, f/8, 50mm, 1600, 0 Ev

#12 with Vivitar 24mm f/2.8
0.4 sec, f/2.8, 400 iso

Thanks,
Hin
