imho, i dont think it would sell, people will adapt themselves....

case and point.....about three years ago, i cut the tendens in two of my fingers on my right hand, i had to have surgery, and couldnt use that hand for a while, well, i was used to doing everything right handed, so i had to relearn, i had to learn to right left handed, and even lpay video games left handed, and now, i find that the video game i learned to play left handed, i can play better than any other game....and to this day, i still play lefthanded, and my fingers wont bend all the way....

anyhow, i dont think it would sell

Brad,
I agree with that, at any rate until there are enough lefty cams to guarentee a future with them, i don't think most people will go for them(Unless they happen to be the nicest).

I can only imagine what it must be like for people who don't have full use of both arms and/or hands.

I am left-handed and left eye dominate. I never really thought about the eye thing until I read luisr's post about the nose smudges. My LCD definitely has my smudges on it.

I pretty much only write and eat left-handed. I once tried to bowl left-handed, and the ball went into the adjacent lane! I used to use my computer mouse left-handed, until I had to share a computer with others. They couldn't or wouldn't adapt to my way, so I switched.

It's easy enough for me to use either hand, but for a task that normally requires two hands, I don't know how easily I would adapt to having only one. I would think that the cameras that have the LCDs that pivot would be helpful. And/or using a tripod. But then that takes away from the spontaneity of point-and-shoot, if that is what one prefers.

I cannot use my left hand or arm due to M.S., I have just purchased a Nikon Coolpix 3200 digital camera. The camera is small enough that I can reach the shutter with my left hand even though the shutter is on the right side. This might be good for you also. Let me know. Oh the pictures are real good quality!

sorry, but with later technology goods having rotating screens, etc., it seems like a no-brainer to just make a digicam where the thing could swing around the other way and invert the image yielding a left-hand alternative. They've done this with refrigerators for years; how'za bout' it for use lefties by genetics or by accident !! Bravo Panasonic for the little SV-AS10 with 2 buttons ...don't know if it was for lefties or if some engineer put an extra button on there and then didn't know what to do with it ??

The Sanyo C4, C40, C5, C6 and HD1 can all be used righty or lefty due to the vertical orientation of the camera and the position of the shutter releases and controls on the back

swell ...looks like c4 is a handfull and might be hard to use lefty ...c5&6 are smaller and may be easier to reach around with left hand & thumb ...HD1 is bigger and fatter (looks like c4 size) and could be tripod mounted and could use remote as IR is on the cam, not the base like the others... anyone held these and tried to use left handed?
