An observation here, as I have no add-on handgrips on my cameras. Like many photographers out there, I am right-handed. So if we are able to spin dials, turn knobs and reset buttons easier with our right dominant hands, why is that hand tied up grabbing the grip? Wouldn't it make sense for manufacturers to offer an add-on hand grip that attaches to the left side of the camera instead? You can now hold the camera with your left hand instead, and make all
your adjustments with your dominant right hand.

I am predominately left handed but am comfortable with either. However, I have owned for many years a Vivitar contoured flash handle fit for the left hand with a cable release hole. It's very comfortable.
