Re: Why are there no cameras with viewfinder on the right?

I would imagine left eyed people are in a minority, so the manufacturers don't want to start catering for you & increasing their costs for the minority.

Maybe with the advent of EVF's someone will eventually design a camera where it can be positioned on the right if you choose. Having said that, many modular cameras in the past had the opportunity to provide grips & controls for left handed people, but never took the opportunity.

It's all about demand & profit.

Everything to do with photography is a guideline. The only rules are generally enforced by the police.
