I know this is topic is a bit silly but...

I've always held the camera up to my left eye, but when I look at books and photos of other people taking pictures they almost always hold the camera to the right eye. So I would like to know which eye is your shooting eye?

Right eye for me...but both eyes open when shooting sports. Right eye in the viewfinder and left eye watching the progress of the play.

Hmmm...

My head turned slightly to the left...LCD on the left, no nose prints on the LCD -- but on the Focus Area Selector...sometimes. ;)

I do have the clear Hoodman cover on my LCD.

left handed, left eye and I use the "nose focus selector" :lol:

About all the pitures where you see a right eyes photographer, be careful: it's the opposite because it's shot into a mirror.

I'm w/Ken-L on this one..."Right handed---Right eye'd". But I read magazines lefthanded (meaning I pick them up and flip from the back to the front holding it w/my left hand. My mom is left handed and I grew up doing it that way because that's the way she does it.).

Me, too. Or sometimes the old proboscis presses the Autofocus Area Selector Button, too. Changes the image review all around from the way I had it set.

But I can't see out of my right eye. At least, not so I could actually see anything useful.

More interesting to add which handed as Jonathan did..
Which handed? Well I'm fairly ambidextrous, in high school I could pitch (baseball) with both arms, and when i play golf I hit my driver and long irons right handed and my wedges left handed. But since I do most of my writing with my right hand, I'll say I'm right handed/ left-eyed.

And like a few other posters i sometimes get my nose on the focus selector (especially on smaller bodies like the D100).

Ah, yes...... :roll:

..... except in this instance, because I flipped the original image horizontally 180°..... :wink:
