What eye do you look through the viewfinder with? I have always used my left eye. I cannot see through the viewfinder at all with my right eye. Even if I block my left eye and look with my right, as soon as I unblock the left all I lose the viewfinder completely.
Am I weird or are others like this?January 20, 2011 at 4:38 pm #38008ravnosticParticipant
primarily my left, but depending on whether I have the camera in portrait or landscape mode, I can go both ways.January 20, 2011 at 4:56 pm #38009nobigdealParticipant
For the left eye shooters out there.January 20, 2011 at 5:17 pm #38010CauseISaidSoParticipant
Right only. I’ve never even tried using my left, it puts my nose into the menu controls and just seems kinda awkward.January 20, 2011 at 6:25 pm #38011Zero_ExponentParticipant
For the left eye shooters out there.
Almost always shoot right, but I tried the “left shoulder rest with both hands on right side of the camera” grip from the video. It wasn’t uncomfortable, and may come in handy when doing low light shooting sans tripod. However, it only works when the camera is pointing at head height or lower.January 20, 2011 at 6:28 pm #38012linguineParticipant
Right eye, I’d guess most people use whichever eye is their dominant eye.January 20, 2011 at 6:42 pm #38013lokisbongParticipant
Right eye only. I am blind in my left eye. Had a cataract in my left eye when I was 15 and they couldn’t put an artificial lens in at that time because they said I wasn’t done growing. And when I was old enough and had stopped growing I was living the poor life on my own so no eye surgery for me. Maybe some day I will get a really good job and get it fixed but after 25 years blind in one eye it doesn’t really bother me.January 20, 2011 at 10:40 pm #38014ennuipoetParticipant
I shoot dominant eye, right both camera and when it was applicable firearms.January 21, 2011 at 1:35 am #38015orionidParticipant
Right eye, unless location/obstructions warrants needing that extra in and a half to the left.January 21, 2011 at 3:27 am #38016zincprincessParticipant
Left eye without even registering that’s what I’m doing. After reading this thread, I tried to use my right eye and I simply cannot do it.January 21, 2011 at 4:36 am #38017CuriousParticipant
left but i’m left eye dominant. and although right handed shoot a rifle off my left shoulder. when i was in navy boot camp we had to qualify with an M-1. which ejects from the right side and the range guys said the brass would hit me if i shot from my left shoulder.
so they made me shoot right hand/shoulder after dry firing some. i was pulling 4 targets to my left. and they politely took me off the range. but since it was navy boot camp somehow i passed that part. 🙂January 21, 2011 at 6:13 am #38019clouddancerParticipant
Right eye dominant, so I shoot with my right eye. Hubs, I’m not sure, but he’s left eye dominant, and left handed, but does some things right-handed.January 21, 2011 at 7:09 am #38020ravnosticParticipant
Herm…would be interesting to see if left eye doms vote differently than right eye doms. A brain thing? Dunno how you’d compose such an experiment, though.January 21, 2011 at 3:33 pm #38018KestranaParticipant
Well you could just have people keep track of how they voted for a month and submit their answers to a neutral 3rd party to sort, along with their eye dominance.
