How to hold the SX700 one handed?
5 months ago

I've just upgraded from a 5 year old Panasonic TZ7 / ZS3 to the Canon SX700 and while I love the new Canon, I am having a little bit of difficulty trying to hold it comfortably with one hand (right hand).

The problem is where to put my thumb.  The Panasonic had a dedicated grip area for a thumb on the back of the camera, but the Canon doesn't.  Without thinking, I keep putting my thumb on the SX700's blue "play" button, as that's roughly where the Panasonic's thumb grip area was, thus I end up inadvertently turning the camera on.  I've also tried to place my thumb on the stiff program dial, and also right on the edge of the LCD screen.

Anyone got any good tips on holding this camera one handed?

ANSWER:
Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 (Lumix DMC-TZ7) PowerShot SX700
