Left Handed d-SLR
9 months ago

I met someone today who had had a stroke affecting his right hand side. He was very upbeat but bemoaned the fact that there are no left handed DSLRs. I watched how he used his camera - holding it with a monopod in his left hand and struggle to make the appropriate adjustments - aperture - speed - compensation and that's before focusing. He was not interested in auto mode although he used it from time to time  preferring AV priority

I wonder how long it will be before camera manufacturers incorporate SIRI type voice commands to their cameras.

I wonder how many people are actually affected and are put off photography simply because, physically, it is difficult for them

Just a thought & perhaps a suggestion to Canon Nikon etc.
