see i'm a left eye/shutter down person, but was thinking if i end up getting the grip, that's going to stuff my vertical shooting style up, and i will end up with my nose squished into the back of the camera, so i wanted to know how many ppl habitually shoot with their noses squished into their cameras and don't mind it

I'm right eye, and I used to turn the camera so the shutter is on top. Now I turn the camera shutter-down so I can keep my elbow in to my chest and get steadier shots.

being in dumb mode, it took me several goes to work out that "shutter" in this poll means "shutter button"
Making things over-technical leading to brain failure...


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", and an M5, also an M6 that has had a 720nm filter bolted onto the sensor:

Left-eyed, right-handed.
With grip: use grip shutter button.
Without grip: shutter button on top (right hand on top). I don't even get how you can shoot with it underneath.
