    Hi,

    As for me im a right hander, left master eye cause my right eye is long sighted. (i don't wear glasses or contact)
    Quite comfortable as my cheek/nose resting against thumb/palm area space away from LCD which reduce stain...ha ha!
    As my right eye is block by my right hand, i don' have to close my right eye straining it which shake the cam. breathing is not obstructed, thank God!!

    I was right eyed until end of 2008 when I had some problem with the right eye for a few months and started to shoot with the left. Now it's second nature. When I pick up the camera it always goes to the left.

    looking through periscopes/telescopes, I use my right eye *monocule version*

    but I aim through my dSLR with my left eye *shrugs*

    I've a right master eye, but I shoot with my left.

    Don't know why, but it seems natural to me especially when my left hand is in front holding the lens

    Hehe, thats right, didn't occur to me until I went back for range and had a hard time adjusting my right eye for aiming.

    I'm a natural left-hander but got it corrected to right when I was a toddler. However it still feels as if my left hand is stronger than my right hand. My master eye is my left eye, and it is less myopic / astigmatic than my right eye.

    In the army I shot my M16 with my right hand / right eye, mainly because I had my doubts if my left hand would feel 'natural' as the trigger hand. Also the deflector that they used for left-handers looked rather dubious. =) I heard that they've corrected that and made the SAR-21 ambidextrous (although I've also heard ominously that the armour plating to protect the shooter in a chamber explosion is meant to protect right-handers only - not sure if it's true or not). Still I've never managed to get anything better than a pass during my ranges because everything looks blurred with my right eye (especially the night shoots).

    As for shooting a camera, I've come to a happy compromise of using right-hand (not much choice in there) and left-eye.

    i am using my left eye. i would then need not have to squint my right eye as the sight of view is somewhat blocked by the camera body (in a way the brain has been accustomed to ignore what the right eye sees, which helped a bit along the way)

    Is it possible to shoot with right-hand and left eye? like uncomfortable nevermind? Sorry, going army soon and my right eye is slightly myopic(like 50-75 degree) while my left is perfect.
