I think that would be a great add on a dlsr! The grip could clip off and clip on to the side you want. I'm left handed and I always pick up the cam with my left hand usually smudging the screen. It would be nice for us softpaws to have a option.:thumbup:
My preferred hand adjusts the lens and supports long heavy lenses. I can use my preferred hand to adjust set pieces, a models hair or a background.
In Chicago, you're saying it wrong. The expression is Southpaw.
Even though I'm right handed, I think this is why cameras should be set up opposite. My preferred hand is performing the simple operation of pushing a button while my ambedextris-challenged hand is performing the more critical operations. OP, you should be happy that cameras are setup the way they are.
I guess it depends on how you learned. I cradle the lens/body in my left hand, tuck my left elbow into my abdomen for support and use the right hand to push a couple buttons and roll a dial or three. My Left hand is doing more "work" IMO.
