Re: Neat Counterweight

Steven...Ding Ding Ding to all. Yep, just did a show last month using D50s-IMO one of the best rigs ever. Not that I'd want to lug one around all day. :-)

Re: Neat Counterweight

Chris,

Yes it is a little awkward sometimes but I have never seen a camera I could not make work. I think about ten percent of males are left handed but the world is made for righties. That's OK, we just compensate. I started in this business as a still photographer in 1987. I have seen many cool things in my life through a viewfinder while the shutter fired and I saw everything with flashes of black mixed in.


Not having a clear view with my free eye can be a disadvantage. When you watch a sporting event that allows credentialed photographers on the sidelines you can see who gets the shot and who doesn't when it happens with athletes coming right at them. Some guys duck or run and others keep shooting. I have been run over by a snowmobile, a mountain biker, and a U S Ski Team member just to name a few. Not to mention Rusty Wallace tried to run me over in a NASCAR garage just for fun. It was fun for him but it scared the hell out of me! He was laughing his but off. We had just finished an interview with him. He is a pretty cool guy but you have probably never heard of him in Australia? I guess I am just to dumb to duck and run.

Re: Neat Counterweight

I'm also left handed but there are so many things I do strictly with my right hand. I can't write worth a damn right handed but then my writing with my left leaves a lot to be desired as well. I found out when I was in the service back in the 60s that I'm right eye dominate. At the shooting range firing a trusty old M-14 I couldn't hit anything. The instructor asked me which eye was stronger, left or right. I told him I didn't know, so he told me to try shooting right handed. I did and it opened up a whole new world for me. when I got out and began my career as a still photog, I tried focusing with my left eye and couldn't. Switched to my right eye and BAM! Clear and sharp.
Yep, been run over at basketball games, football games. Never at NASCAR since I did robotic cameras and we were situated pretty far off the track. ;-0.
I did meet Rusty once when I went up to the race control booth to pull our camera after the race and he was coming down. Stopped and chattd for a couple of minutes. Pretty nice guy,
