    I am left handed

    Please i have a problem, I am left handed, besides in using the view finder I cannot close my left eye. All these while the cameras i have been using is the hand-held ones.

    Now, my problem is how am i going to manage with a shoulder or professional camera since that one is designed for those who can close the left eye to use the view finder.

    Hope someone can help me on this.

    Thanks.

    Re: I am left handed

    Can the viewfinder extend out enough to reach your left eye? This could be worth trying.

    Otherwise I don't have any good suggestions except practice using your right eye

    I'll try and remember to ask a few guys at work tomorrow - there must be the odd left-hander amongst them.

    The camera guys I spoke to today all seemed to agree - you can either extend the viewfinder to your left eye, or (preferably) learn to use your right eye.

    Also, remember that shooting with both eyes open is a useful skill.
