More touch­screen trou­bles ?

NPhoto - - Over To You… -

Eric McAlpine states in his let­ter that a user’s nose will only touch the left side of the Nikon D5500. How­ever this is only true if you are a right-eye shooter! I use my left eye to see through the viewfinder, so my nose touches the mid­dle/right of the back of my cam­era. I am sure I’m not the only pho­tog­ra­pher who uses their left eye, but per­haps it’s a good thing I use a D7000, which doesn’t have touch­screen!

Anne Rogers, via email Re: the let­ter ‘A Nose for the fact’ in is­sue 64. While the writer may not be able to al­ter set­tings with his nose, he may use his right eye to look through the viewfinder. But I find it much eas­ier to view with my left eye and then you can in fact al­ter set­tings with your nose (sorry, but couldn’t keep it out).

A. Mad­den, via email Anne and A, thanks for the tips. We’ve tried it with both eyes on the D5500 and it’s fairly dif­fi­cult to ac­ci­den­tally hit some­thing with your nose, re­gard­less of which eye you use, but it’s worth pay­ing at­ten­tion to the func­tion­al­ity of the cam­era if it starts act­ing oddly. It may be that your hooter is the is­sue!
