Panavisions inventory is worldwide, so things can be shipped in from anywhere. If you want to rent a film camera from any Panavision branch it can be organised.

Yes I think you would have to set it up permanently on the "left eye side"..  I actually only came across one "left eyed " DP all there years I was an assistant .. and he had an SR of course.. he was also left handed.. so the pan bar was on the "wrong" side too 

 

Yes, we are a rare breed. Struggling in the right man's world.

Aaton had an extension piece for the VF which allowed left-eye use, although I found it fit my right eye well too. I believe it's a rare piece but I owned one for some time.

haha.. this guy was left handed too..the very talented Chris Cox.. so the whole camera and tripod was set up.. mirror image..it was odd when you walked up to the camera to get focus points.. and found it impossible to operate :)

I can switch the optical viewfinder on my Alexa Studio from right eye to left in about 10 seconds (and from spherical to anamorphic in about 2 seconds). You can also rotate the image in the viewfinder to whatever off-axis angle you need.

It's brilliant for all those times you stuffed into corner or some other odd cameraman yoga position.
