Haha, funny.

But just few days ago I was thinking to myself if there would be market for L-bodies. And came to conclusion that not enough to cover the cost of making 2 versions of the same camera, compared to the fact that left-handed can use normal camera quite good anyway.

Really? We're all 12 years old now? *sigh*

Okay, just because it's a joke, doesn't mean we can slack off people:
I'm switching to Nikon.
Awwww...lighten up!!  :)
On a ridiculously serious planet, April 1 fun helps make the world a better place.
I love it. And I'm not even a lefty.

You obviously didn't find Google's joke funny then.

I watched Google's joke and was waiting for something to laugh at.

On top of that, both that and this I did not see until the 2nd of April.

Problem is, I was expecting something.

Both rather lame attempts.

Has any company ever made a lefty camera?

Large format (with bellows) and technical cameras (where you mount a back to a mounting plate) are neither left nor right handed. Look for a picture of an Arca Swiss with a digital back on it.

I'm left handed.

This looks like it would be extremely uncomfortable if it were real.

I'm a lefty, and when I was about 11 years old, back in the mid 1960's, my father gave me his old Exacta film SLR, which was designed for leftys.
The shutter was beside the lens on the left hand side as was the film advance lever.

I loved it because I could use my left eye on the viewfinder and not have my nose pressing up against the body and could actually use my right eye to see the wider view.

I reckon that there is a market for left handed DSLR's, not only for leftys, but also to mount with a right handed version for stereo stills and movies.

Come on Canon, stop discriminating against left handed persons and bring one out!

Who says today's bodies are not optimized for lefties anyway? I mean you are holding the heavy lens with your left arm and only doing the camera operation with your right.

This reminds me of when Burger King announced they were creating the Left Handed Whopper in the US. They even ran an ad for it, and people fell for it, or should I say "bought it"!!  :o
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

Did not have to read the whole article, one look at the image of "7DL" and anyone will know that its made for April 1st ... sorry, but its a very lame attempt, I was expecting a bit more believable prank.

Simple, choose between:

7DMkII
EF35mm 1.4L II
EF400mm f/5.6L IS
EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II

(All shipping May 2013  ;D )
OK I meant shipping May 2014  ;D  ;D  ;D

(It has to be believable...)
