    He has a pro camera don't you know? Only pros use cameras which are so big that the shutter button requires the use of the entire hand to depress it.

    Wah, Leong23, you're really sibei pro man. I bet the pictures you take with your right or left hands on the shutter button confirm make people go WOW.

    eye + passion > hands
    Wasn't there a recent exhibition on in Japan (?) where photos from blind kids were showcased? Apparently the photos taken were awesome.

    Very touching.

    But back to the original topic. Mr SYPA 2008 Champion of Champions, do YOU use your left hand or right hand to take your pictures which make people go WOW?

    i don't really think it matters, because i use my left hand to support and my right hand to click the shutter. if i tried to hold up my sigma 10-20 + k20d combination with one hand all the time i suspect i'd have a lot of abstract photos due to handshake.

    It wasn't meant as a serious question, but since you answered it seriously, umm... thanks for your input?

    Go Jimi Hendrix style -- put your battery grip on, flip the camera upside down and shoot with your left hand. Works on my Canon 30d, your mileage may vary. You'd have to learn to read upside down, and get used to strange looks from the sane ones.
    Okay, okay, I was bored.

    How about my left and right ears? Do they come into play as well? Which finger do you use to depress the shutter? How much force do you depress it with? I'm afraid if I press too hard I might damage my camera.

    And seeing how you have assessed the situation before, which ball for you is bigger? Your left or right ball?
    My right ball is bigger and hairy too. Wanna see? WOW

    I have a pretty high percentage of posts which do not contribute to this forum in any positive manner. Just like this one.

    So why i saw those CMI pic, i had a feeling that they actually release the shutter by sitting on the shutter button. Worst result is that they didn't wash their axx.

    Thank you.
    I am a right hander.

    One thing I learn is you don't fight with a left hander or a left legger.

    I normally let the XMM presses the shutter.

    Do you fight people who are ambidextrous?
