I think we all do whatever works. Especially if we used cameras before LCD's were not he norm :D

My sig this week is an ironic reference to the new automatic entry in quoted text when the quoted poster is on the reader's Ignore list (someone asked for a way to block Ignored users' posts even in quoted text, so Adam recently made the change).

I developed a way to hold my K-01 that works well for live view with dSLR's. Elbows in at sides, classic 'stable base' grip with base supported on left palm and right hand LIGHTLY gripping. Raise camera to about chin height (maybe nose height) and look slightly down at LCD.

You don't have to hold it like a compact and you can reach most of the controls. What you lose is the third support point (brow over viewfinder).

Since my intended use for the K-3 is now long lenses on tripod I imagine the split-image will outperform magnified live view ITO ease of use outdoors.

FWIW the packaging is astonishingly good.

The actual screen is 'secure' in a tiny zip-closing envelope, inside a small plastic clip box, inside a bubble bag, inside a fitted cardboard folding box the size of a medium paperback book, inside a bubble mailer.

I got my shipment email today on my K-3 split-image / micro prism collar screen.

You certainly bought the Cadillac. All the engraving lines?
