New to the group, waiting on delivery of a D 300. I am left handed, and looked on the web to see if there was such a thing as a left handed battery grip, as I am left handed. Every search brought up left handed things, and grips, but nothing telling me if there was such a thing. I sincerely doubt there is, but there is always hope.
A shot in the dark? Dumb question? Learn to shoot righthanded?
I dont use a grip, but i find i think being left handed would be an advantage. I find the right hand actuating the shutter to be natural, and that puts my stronger left hand/arm under the camera for zooming/camera support which i feel provides a little more control and solid support.

I'm left-handed, left-footed and left-eyed (I even part my hair on the left side, well what's left of it). I've never had any trouble with camera controls (or using a mouse) because of it. I think it's all what you get used to.
Yeah, you all have convinced me to stick with my "Left handed guy in a right handed world" pose with photography as well. However hard it is to do, as long as I get the shot, the proof is in the shot, not the contortioned joints.
I am naturally left handed but I have mix of some things I do best right handed. For example, I write left handed. I throw left handed, but bat right handed. I have never been able to bat left handed, not good anyway. But when I throw a frisbee, it feels most natural and most accurate with my right hand. Weird huh? I also kick with my right foot. As far as I know this was natural for me.
Some things felt unnatural right handed at first, but I made myself do them right handed because I knew I would be limited and hindered later if I didn't. I now play guitar, use a mouse, and use scissors right handed. These weren't natural but now after years of doing them right handed, left handed feels very awkward.
Also, I am left eye dominant. When I got a DSLR and needed to use the controls and buttons while looking through the viewfinder, I found that my nose got in the way, sometimes pushing the controls with my nose or at least hindering me from using my fingers on controls. Over the past year or so I made the switch to right eyed shooting and it is beginning to feel very natural for me. I still use my left eye when I use this method of steadying the camera.
OK. For my old D40X there was an ML-3 wireless shutter release.
It does not work on the D300, but is there one that does? I looked under accessories, did a search online and here, and in the manual under accessories and did a search for it in the pdf file. Does it exist?
