This may be a weird question, but I wanted to see which eye people use more when looking through the viewfinder. So, do you use your left eye or right eye? (normally you'll look through the viewfinder with your dominant eye)

Guess I'll go first, I use my left eye.

I use my left. Can be a pain trying to use controls while looking through the viewfinder.

I think most people use their right.

I usually use my right eye, but I'm left-eye dominant. I've recently been using my left eye more to see if (hah) it makes a difference. I don't think it does, at least not for me.

I use my left as well. The other eye just felt plain weird!

The evil eye.

I've actually never used my left eye on the viewfinder.

Left is right, don't you know?
Right is just wrong.

I use both. My right eye is normal, but I have a "most stable" camera position that when used requires me to use the left eye. Because of this I find that I've become comfortable using either eye. Sometimes one eye is faster than the other and it doesn't bother me to go with what's fastest at the moment. No vision problems and I don't need glasses.

Right left all rights to rightness. What's left is left.

Left eye. I'm left-handed, though, so I don't think it ever occurred to me to try my right eye. I feel like there was a thread like this around this time last spring....

How the heck can people tell which eye is their "dominant" eye?

You always use that one to wink at girls or something?! :p
