This might sound a bit unusual, but I'd like to have a binocular finder.  Practicality aside, I find I /see/ better with two eyes than with either one of them.  And strangely enough, photography seems to require seeing.

On the more practical side, my left eye is just a bit worse than my right, and I'd love it if I could use my right.  Anyone else here try to use their DSLRs with their right eye?

I now must use my right eye. Being at ease with that need practice, not a change one would forget after a week or two, but a possible change anyway...

An intermediary solution was to use a live-view camera. With an adjustable screen, one can old such camera like a Rolleyflex TTL camera, not at arm length...

As an oily nosed big beaked person I've read this thread with much interest. From afar people always assume I have a Canon pro-zoom on my camera but it's just my nose. :-[


My thoughts always revolved around designing the camera so the eyepiece at the bottom lefthand side of the body.
