Right handed, right eye for both cameras and guns. I tend to leave my left eye open and will sometimes track action with it. Years ago while doing a lot of microscope work with a single eye piece I learned to work with both eyes open and pay attention to only the eye I needed. Working with both eyes open does help eliminate some fatigue. A dual eye piece microscope made the work easier, however. It is remarkable that someone has not invented a dual eyepiece camera - now wouldn't that be something!

Eye? You mean I am supposed to be using my eyes? That explains so many things

I'm pretty ambidextrous. I shoot rifles right-handed, pistols left-handed. I bowl right-handed. I do write left-handed. My right eye is my dominant, and better vision, so that's the one I use.

Not so far fetched, they have a binocular eyepiece accessory for telescopes. Of course something like this would be very, very bulky on a camera!

Left because my right eye is pretty much out of order.

My right eye is now at the extremes of the diopter on my XT1 and XE2, on the pentax I had a +3 diopter which gave me breathing room. I will need to adapt to left eye eventually as my left is far stronger

Nose is the pain in a neck sometimes. And the greasy screen.

Left eye/right-handed...which makes back-button AF awkward. I've tried to change, but hasn't been easy.

Mine, usually, I found out it's easier this way.


Oh, you mean which of mine? :-) Usually the right, but I sometimes switch to the left when getting tired, mostly in bright light.

I use the left eye as well. I'm right handed. Close the right eye.

I thought most people use the right eye to keep nose away from the screen and I was an exception, but looks like I'm like everyone else .

Right eyed but left always open, far easier to avoid inbounds that way.

Right eye. I operate the same as my rifle scope & usually keep both open.

I try to use the lcd screen on the back at times, but I like the traditional feel of looking through the viewfinder, plus, I can't see squat up close anymore so if I do use the lcd screen, I'm usually leaning back more lol

I write with my right hand, but can use either for other things. Example: I can shoot pool equally using both hands.
Viewfinder and gun scopes, strictly with left eye.

I am ambidextrous and used to use my right eye but last 2-3 year i mainly using left.

AF button can be annoying if you are using left eye ^^
