My daughter is showing a real interest in photography. She has a paralized right arm and hand, so has lots of trouble with regular cameras. is there anything out there for left handed people. I would prefer a kids version or cheaper version to try out. and when she gets older if she is still as into it will look to upgrade. Thanks to anyone whocan help.

Welcome to the Forums.

Perhaps some of our left handed members may have some suggestions. I'll move this thread down to our What Camera Should I Buy Forum where members may see it and help out with recommendations.

dont know why but after i read this i took my nikon point and shoot and turned it upside down and pushed the button with my left thumb and it seems to work fine. i am left handed and have never seen a left handed camera before but such a thing may exist. you may want to try using one upside down, it may work for your situation. hope this helps, ecap

according to your wish, I come across this camera. Please check it out at:


these are more cheaper, but have popular functions.

it looks promising for your consideration.

I'm not lefthanded either. But the upside down approach suggestedby ecap sounds reasonable to me. Inexpensive cameras that are more easy to grip with one hand would include the Nikon L-series, Olympus FE-310, and Panasonic LS80 and LZ8.
