How do I avoid accidentally switching on electronic shutter on the G6?
Jul 2, 2014

I have done it several times -- and I did it today when I went out with the G6 to give it a heavy workout at the Melanesian Festival of Arts and Culture in Kokopo.

For a while I was shooting with the electronic shutter with some "interesting" results! LOL.

Note the new style bendy drumstick! Well, it was straight! No big deal in this case.

Oops! The dancer was bobbing up and down so we have a rather distorted face. Not a good look at all.

I could swear I had the electronic shutter switched off in the menus -- but maybe not.

If it was NOT switched off, it was not activated until I did something -- heaven knows what.

Any ideas?

Cheers, geoff
