Years ago, I had a pistol grip,with a shutter release cable on it, don't know why I had it and probably didn't use it much,but I'm sure their still out there. Either that or save the money, buy a good bottle of wine and go shoot! No more wine-ing!
Turning the camera upside down....THAT'S THE TICKET!!!.....I was afraid the image would be upside down on the camera screen...BUT IT AIN'T.
I'm old enough, to have had a top of the line SLR camera that had the image upside down on the viewing screen, when using it right handed.....I can't remember the name, but I know it came from East Germany
Roger, that SLR will probably have been the Pentacon Six in my avatar. With the waist-level viewer the image is flipped rather than upside down, because there is one mirror involved, For upside down you want a large-format camera ....
Yes, I'm left-handed. What nobody has mentioned is that cameras are made for right-eyed people, too, and I am left-eyed (and left-footed, as well, come to that). The right-eyed issue is IMHO bigger than the right-handed issue (though neither of them is very big). They build cameras so that when you hold them against your left eye you tend to have your right thumb sticking into your right eye. The photo in my avatar wasn't taken in a mirror.
In the 50s they made quite a lot of cameras that were either handedness-neutral or were actually left handed and, in the case of the Moskva 5 (and presumably the Super-Ikonta C) left-eyed, with the viewing window set on the right side. I have to admit, though, that - perhaps through familiarity - I like right-eyed cameras because it concentrates my vision entirely on the scene in the viewfinder and having the camera pressed into my face helps with stability.
Of course, we now also have the P&S screen cameras for the under-40s with no vision issues or, possibly, over-40 orang-utans with extraordinarily long arms.
I'm left handed and I don't have a problem using right-handed cameras. In fact, I prefer it. Having control over the zoom lense feels a lot better in my left hand than my right. All you really need to do with the right hand is holding down the focus and capture buttons. That's honestly about it.
I'm left handed and never had a problem. That being said, I do hold the lens backwards (to righties, at least) and someone who thought they were "all that" with a camera offered "advice" on how I should be holding the camera. I responded, " I'm a professional and a leftie and this works for me, but thanks." I can't "cup" the lens as it feels like I'm twisting my hand; I hold it like one would hold binoculars.
an idea... get a helmet and mount a 1/4-20 post on it. screw the camera on that, and use a shutter release to get your shots. if you use a wide angle you can capture the world in an unusual way, mostly people staring a the guy wearing the camera on his head. but it would be different.
