One of the most weirdo designs in any camera: A RECESSED MODE DIAL!

No wonder it was NEVER discussed or even shown in a photo here in this review or any other endorsed review... it is an EPIC FAIL.

Otherwise, a very good and capable camera.

I actually really like it that way, because it’s more rugged and not in the way in normal operation.

If you thought it’s hard to use the dial – as it’s depicted from the top angle view of the camera – it is really not, you can easily access and scroll it from the back of the camera (and see on top what mode you’ll set it to).

Wish more cameras had that little design 'anomaly'.
