    I haven't used a viewfinder for a long time now, and I'm right hand/eye dominant, but when putting the G3 to my face the EVF naturally comes to my left eye?

    Am I doing this wrong? :biggrin: ... Anyone else experience this?

    It doesn't feel uncomfortable at all, and it seems to work fine, just surprises me.... I think it kinda feels like too much of a reach to support the camera with my left hand when bringing the EVF to my right eye for some reason... kinda like my hand is across my face... only thing I can think of to explain it.


    :: darn it, this is in the wrong forum, sorry, please move this to the correct area::

    What do you mean by "support the camera with my left hand"?

    I use my right eye. My right hand holds the body on the right side, using the mini "grip." My left hand is under the camera (with a pancake lens), or under the lens. Feels perfectly natural to me.

    But the key is what works for you. If you can hold the camera steady and clearly see and frame the image using your left eye, I don't see any problem with it.
