Eyes wide open?

I do this most often as closing the other eye causes jittering movement on the camera body (maybe I am close my eyes so hard) and also causes some eye strain. I close the other eye only during clicking. When I am in bright sun light also, I just can't keep both eyes open as it becomes too difficult to see through the viewfinder. Closing the other eye during these times helps me see what is in the viewfinder. Yes, during these times I press and close the other eye that it has sometime stressed me out. :D

The Iphone 12 is better than a DSLR

This argument from a new phone owner has always been there and I don't believe this is (as always) not something only new iPhones are bringing into the marketplace. This is the same case with other branded phones as well and in fact those phones have already reached where iPhone is aspiring to be now, mainly the zooms.
Having said that limitations are always there and will continue to be a fact in small form factor. Therefore these can never replace a DSLR at least in near long term. But it is also a fact that, for video production - yes phone cameras have already started to excel and could be a challenge in the near term.

Taking Selfie with DSLR:
I am sure many veterans including amateurs will already be practicing this intuitively. Still I am no expert but wanted to share this as a short quick tips just for the sake of getting into this giveaway :). In this age of selfie, this tip might get some prominence. If you already have a wireless remote shutter for your low light shots (very affordable ones, just for a few dollars, are available all over the internet if you don't already have one), connect it by enabling the 'remote shutter' option in your camera setting.
Lift he camera up in your hands with the lens facing you. Point the remote towards the camera from your other hand and press the shutter button to release the shot.

Some precaution before the selfie:
1. Before you go for the shot, set your exposure before hand point to where you will stand and lock the focus if possible.
2. Feel free to increase the ISO to enable a quick shutter - to avoid any blur from hand movement.
3. If required enable the flash on a bright sunny day.
4. Increase the aperture size to increase the field of play so there is good coverage beyond you to cover your background.
5. Go wide angle on your zoom or use a wide prime lens.
6. Always try put your camera mode to 'multiple shots' so at least you can make few moments with your hand to make sure at least one of the shot has captured you in the proper frame.

Enjoy your DSLR Selfie shots!

My Christmas gift from self! backshell protective case for my backup camera :) Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Always trying to explore ways giving it the same level of treatment as my dear Pentax K-r. Getting a 50 mm lens will be great too as a second gift from 'Pentaxforums'. (The photograph itself was taken using Note 5)

@Nicolas06 , are the photos on flickr all taken with the 35mm? They all look well exposed and sharp. What is the aperture on this photo above?

Casual walkaround shots taken during July 2014!

---------- Post added 08-05-14 at 01:39 PM ----------

Hi @Nicolas06, thanks for the descriptions. I am no expert therefore my understanding with aperture was as I open it wide say f2.4 in this case I would have thought there is very shallow depth of field and have never tried to capture a complete scene till now - I was only going for this aperture, given the shallow depth, to take portraits or single objects.
I am just realising that I can also shoot streetscapes and night scenes but this brings up a question, where would your focus point be on your streetscape...!?
Secondly, in the second photograph where the boats are docked with mountains in the background - why did you go for f3.2, normally we would go with f8 or something around a small aperture..?

thanks for sharing all this as I am learning by seeing all this.

Will K-50 handle 1080p videos at good frame rates including night videos? sorry for asking here, I will anyway go through the specs still I have no slightest idea as to what specs to look for in a DSLR to make sure it captures decent videos. I don't Kr did handle night videos or maybe I didn't know how to operate video on DSLR.
If not the kind of videos on a full frame DSLRs at least equivalent to some handycams will help. I am thinking of selling of my Sony handycam as well as I am not able to carry both along. So just thinking of a DSLR (well, not expensive) that can also manage videos.
