I need 2 right hands.
« on: July 10, 2008, 01:25 AM »
The piece I'm building right now is the first time I've tried to take detailed pictures of A project all the way through. The problem is, the tools are designed to be held right handed and the button on the camera is on the right. I don't have anyone else to take the pics. What's the answer to this little dilema? I  ambidextrous but the tools aren't ??? ;D

A combination of a tripod and your self- timer function on your camera.

You mean I have to go read the instructions again? ;D

Again, and again, and again ...  ;D

...well, anyway,  that's what I have to do.

I've read this manual many times. I do keep picking up something new every time though. ;)

A cable release will work pretty well also.  I use it any time I use a tripod.  No chance of camera shake!

Hey Bill
Have you tried holding the camera upside down with your left hand and using your left thumb?
Just remember to rotate the image when you save it.
