Re: Cheap solution for the G3 flush DISP / Fn1 button problem

Very smart solution !

Mine shows less glamour; I've just sticked a little patch of foam and in order to get a nice round cut, I used that office tool employed to cut holes in sheets of paper (so that you can store them in a folder, how do you call that tool in English ?).

I must say that at the beginning I was really put off by that hard to find fn button. I'm so accustomed to prefocuse with the AF/AE lock button that I couldn't adapt to this damned recessed button. I almost begun to hate the camera, untill in a helpful message Diane B hinted me to that possible workaround.

It is almost unbelievable that such a small thing could become so irritating and so frustrating. I can't understand why Panasonic allowed such a misconceived design to succeed, it is such a big ergonomic blunder.

But with the patch it is a whole other camera. I love it now.

Here is how the camera look now :
