Left Handed Cameras
by snapshot2 Forum moderator / May 26, 2006 5:01 AM PDT

I don't know of any digital cameras specificly made for left handed use.

But there are cameras that are "lefty friendly".

Here is a link; scroll all the way to the bottom and see some Sanyo cameras that can easily be operated with either hand:

These look like camcorders, but in reality they are digital cameras wearing a different skin.

Turn the camera up side down.The shutter will come to your left hand thumb.Take the inverted photos.Then turn the photos 180 degree by any photoediting s/w.But I have never tried this.

You would have very limited choices...

It is better to train yourself in using it right handed. Just practice... it seems awkward at first, but you will get over the learning curve...

Touch Screen

I understand this a a fairly old forum, but I cannot use my right hand due to nerve damage, so you and I are kind of in the same boat in this area. I have found that there are a few touch screen cameras that allow you to set it so that you can just touch the back of the screen to take a picture rather than reaching over to the right side of the camera and blocking the screen to take the picture
