@PhilipKendall - sorry, I'm not an expert in all the 18-55 versions, I was going by reputation and my own faulty memory, I fixed the answer.

comment Do Left and Right matter in how the photo is perceived?
@RussellMcMahon - you made me laugh - but I'm going to answer your comment seriously - I wrote only about LTR language audience, I suspect (but don't have anything to back it up so I didn't write it) that the reverse isn't true for RTL/vertical languages - but if it does - you can have the subject look slightly down/up or look/move toward one top/bottom corners

@mattdm - there is good research that show people scan pictures in reading direction but I can't find any credible scientific study about the feeling difference of LTR vs. RTL images

comment Why shutter is not closed by-default on mirrorless cameras as it's closed on film ones?
@BrianFunt - the sensor can't stop recording, light sensitive electronics remain light sensitive even when it's inconvenient, "electronic shutter" is implemented by reading the data while the sensor keeps recording, you either get low resolution (when reading the entire sensor at once) or strange artifacts with fast moving subjects (when reading line-by-line), your typical compact point-and-shoot is both low-res (compared to DSLR/mirrorless) and not typically used for high-speed subjects, high-end point and shoots usually have mechanical shutters
