I don't think it is just you. I find the left-handed cameras are non-trivial to adapt to (at least for me).

For what it's worth, the Mockba is also a left-handed camera. I can do OK with it as-designed, but I do better with a cable release curled around to my right hand. I don't think I will ever be really good with it.
