Wonder how do u left-handed guyz get used to the camera.

My left-hand's exceptionally weak and I can't shoot properly with a steady hand if the firing trigger is activated by my right finger and my left hand's supporting the camera.

Any tips from left-hand shoot guyz? :(

rotate your cammie and use your left hand's fingers to press lor (upside down but still works the same). :bsmilie: *runs away*

I'm left handed too! that means my left hand is stronger than my right!

i use the left hand to hold the lens, if the lens is short, i use my left hand to hold the bottom grip for horizontal position, lens again for the portrait orientation.

you are left-handed and yet it is "exceptionally weak"?

I'm left handed too! but find no problem using right hand to shoot (M16/camera etc)

More importantly your master eye... right or left?

Hi... the left hander sub user group...

Glad to see so many left handers around. I'm one of em.

My left hand tends to shake a bit when I am holding the lens with it while depressing the shuttle. Now I'm just tryign to get use to it :D:D

Well, I'm a left-hander too, meaning I write and use chopsticks with my left hand, and it's marginally stronger than my right. ;)

Interestingly I fired the M16 with my right hand, and I play hockey with a right-handed stick. I also use the mouse using my right hand, and open cans with my right hand. :dunno:

I hold the camera as per right-handers as well. Added advantage being a left-hander since it holds the heavy part of the camera--the lens.

It all gets down to being adaptable. I think it's not a problem of being left-handed or right-handed, but more of getting proper handholding techniques.

...







And it's not the "shuttle". It's the shutter. :devil:

Maybe I caused some confusions up there.

OK, I'm a weird case.

- My left eye's perfect vision and my right eye's terribly shortsighted.
- My stronger arm is my right arm, my left arm's near zero strength.
- I am right-handed (although I'm practicising writing using my left hand)
- I wear my watch on my right hand

Weirdo? Dun think I can change. :(

Hahaha so many joker commenting funny jokes on left hander..... I'm a left hander but i dun think there is any problem i had using a normal cam. If you have problem i think the only solution is to use a tripod to assist you :dunno:. Shaky or not is depend on skill and training so take more pic or you will get to do better :)

Woohoo! That would be great! It's always super-irritating to be always "fighting" with the person on my left! :bsmilie:

Or we could always switch to western. Then again we will have a problem of picking up the wrong forks and knives from our neighbours--both left and right!
