right handed, left footed, right-eye dominant (even though my left eye is sharper). guess i'm a weirdo, too...;)

on another note, i remember my father shooting with an analog Canon 30 a while back that had "eye- control" meaning you could focus with your eye.
does anyone know, why canon didn't continue with that feature on the digital eos body's?

It's referred to as cross-dominance.

I used to shoot (firearms) right handed, closing my left eye. That works OK, but it makes it more difficult to aim. I've since switched to shooting left handed for most things and I can keep both eyes open. Once you get the muscles trained that way it's much better. Unfortunately, many firearms are only available in right-handed models.

With my camera, I've always used my left eye. I have a hard time even looking through the VF with my right eye.

I use my left and according to the test I'm left dominant. I do find it interesting that cameras seem to be designed for the left eye, blocking more of the right eye.

I'm also right handed but do a lot with my left hand. There are certain food I eat only on the left, and some only on the right.

Ditto. I'm so left eyed that I sometimes change the comp from from right left. Just looks better to me. Light the same way. Light to dark....left to right.

Left eye, but I shoot with both eyes open - go figure.

I actually kind of use both, depending. Right-eye dominant, for sure, but I'll use the left eye quite often.

That's actually *preferred*; lots of pros train themselves to keep both eyes open when shooting. I did it... here's a great advantage to being able to have peripheral vision while using the camera, especially in action shooting, and *most especially* if you're completely deaf and can't hear things like approaching vehicles or warning cries...

I'm a righty, and sometimes I keep my left eye open, depending on the situation. I've done a tonne of microscope work, and learned to keep both eyes open while using only one, to lessen headaches.
