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

I'm one of those weird people who give designers the shits: Right handed, but left eye dominate. That means that with most modern DSLRs I end up mashing my nose against the LCD screen, but I would hate having to use a left-handed control layout that would most likely be needed for a left-eyed viewfinder. It just feels weird and uncomfortable holding my camera up to my right eye, but being left-eyed isn't a huge problem with DSLRs, just means I need to clean the LCD screen a little more often.

Oddly enough, I shoot archery left-handed (and left-eye dominate).
