    unless you have some super steady hands or you mount a tripod in the mrt train...

    if not, i think its next to impossible to get a good clear self portrait using a dslr/slr in a moving train...

    Either use tripod with timer... or with remote trigger... or have extra long arms... like ah meng... or... use a 16mm lens on a full frame...

    Just clamp it on your shoe and lift your foot up in front of you.
    You'll get a good shot if you are not wearing skirt.

    Jump onto the tracks and when the train slams you, some people will be around to help take the portrait of you lah. No need to trouble yourself.
