    Owing to an accident when I was 6,I have a scar across the lens of my right eye-so of necessity,I'm DEFINITELY left eyed!

Some say that's a bit cack-handed but I find it awkward reaching 'over the top' with my right hand for the shutter release.
    I'm the opposite. I hate having my hand, cocked way down there below the camera. Very awkward. I find having it on top, much more natural and comfortable. That's why I no longer use my Stroboframe "flash-flip", I love the "camera-flip" model.

    Left-handed, left-eyed, switchhitter with bat (decades ago), and play golf right-handed. It has been so long since I started looking through a viewfinder that I don't remember having any problem with being stuck in the eye with the lever.
    At this point the best thing is that with my nearsightedness I don't really require a loupe to focus on the ground glass.

    Left handed, left footed, left eyed.
    On the other hand, play guitar and violin the "right" way.

    Left eyed, right handed, left footed, same as you. I found out I was left-eyed when I first picked up a rifle.

    Rifles are definately not built for us left eyed folk. I found that out too! A camera does not leave a permanent scar...

    Right eyed, handed, footed, but can't hold/swing a bat, golf club or field hockey stick any way other than left handed. How's that for weird?

    Same here on the color balance. I thought maybe I shifted one eye (my left, of course) during thousands of ours spent peeping through the eyepiece of a telescope! Are you an astronomer by chance??
