Soft release buttons
Sep 16, 2011

I can see how the Thumbs Up ( http://matchtechnical.com/ThumbsUpEP5S.aspx ) would be handy (so to speak) for the X100. The wannabe grip in the X100 is not really that great specially when trying to maneuver the buttons in the back at the same time you are holding it against the eye, and at 5'2" I have small hands so I can't really blame hand size here.

I like the way the soft buttons look specially the bug ones, but I'm not sure what a they add to the shooting experience. I have several vintage cameras and I never used or thought adding that kind of accessory but I see so many X100 owners using it specially with the Thumbs Up.

Soft button users, would you please explain the benefits?
