    Right handed, i shoot with left eye and my master eye seems to be right eye.

    Maybe that why i get out of frame pictures

    Neither... I close them both and "use the force"

    Funnily it turns out I'm right handed and left master eye... and I guess it shows, cos when i first started I would use my left eye and had to consciously try to use my right (Even though i've naturally always shot rifles and handguns sighting with my right eye... go figure )

    actually.. technically speaking it's ok to shoot with either eye right?

    since we are not aligning a rear sight to a front sight..but looking through a mirror / a prism..

    i think i can do with both left and right.. sometimes my right eye feels irritated (lack of sleep maybe?!) then i change to left eye..

    not sure if it's correct to work that way though..

    Well, technically what i'm asking here is user preference haha.. There's nothing wrong with using both eyes. You aren't finding depth when you look through the viewfinder.

    I'm a right-hander. Initially used my left eye to look into the viewfinder, but find that my right thumb kept pressing against my specs which leaves many prints everytime I shoot. So now I try to use my right eye to view, but subconsciously uses back my left eye at times.

    but my face is very oily making the viewfinder and screen oily too

    I use dslr with my left eye open. However when playing gun video game i keep my right eye open

    I'm short sighted and my left eye is better btw. I think coz b/c i use my right eye more.

    both. i get tired of closing my left while my right opens, dries my eye to do that for a long time, and soon i realized i could use my left and it would be better as i could see better even when not closing my right eye, as my trigger hand would cover the light from my right eye, and so there was less distraction.

    This is interesting.
    I would have thought that most people are right-handed,
    and most right-handed people be right-master-eye
    and most people with right-master-eye would shoot (camera n rifle) with their right eye.

    Guess this poll shows otherwise. Right-handers do shoot with their left eye.
    Unless....don't tell me that most photograhpers here are left-handers

    Assuming most use their right hand to shoot, I suppose it would be more comfortable for the positioning of supporting left hand if one uses the left eye to look into the viewfinder. If using right eye have to slant your head and left hand abit, abit like hunched up more... my 2 cents =)

    i shoot with left eye even though i am right hander.
    my master eye is right. in army i shoot with right eye too... i am not sure how or when i starting shooting (photo) with my left eye. also only realised it recently. i also realise i can only close left eye and keep right eye open and not the other way.

    my feel is that using right eye.. you need to keep left eye shut..
    using left eye.. my both eyes are open all the time. the right hand holding the camera will naturally cover my right eye, hence i am still looking through one eye.

    Shoot with right, would like to learn to shoot with both, 'cause leaving the other eye open to scan the action on the other side is a good thing.
