Am I the only fat fingered fool having a time removing the SD card from my XE1?

Re: Am I the only fat fingered fool having a time removing the SD card from my XE1?

Well, no, more than a few times a month. I do it at least once a day. Often I do it mid-day, and often when I have a next shot about to escape. Convenience and number of movements required do matter than.

See, SD cards, like any media, do go bad at times. On Fuji X-E1 there is not luxury of dual cards, like I used to on Canon 1D MkIII. In case a card goes bad (which happened to me just a month ago), I'd rather loose 2-4 Gb, than 8-16Gb of photos. So yes, multi-step inconvenient media change is a design flaw.
