I'm using a Sony RX10 IV. I’m finding that it is pretty easy to accidentally change the focal length. For example say if I have extended the camera to 600mm, I’m regularly accidentally knocking zoom lever and accidentally changing the focal length to something like 500mm. This is particularly the case when I’m using the camera with a shoulder strap. Is there a way to either fix the focal length or change the function of the zoom lever so it cannot accidentally be knocked?

You can swap the zoom control to the focus ring - now you are much less likely to accidentally alter the zoom. One of the first things I did when I got the camera.

Could you tell me how to do that please as that would solve problem? I can zoom using the focus ring, but this doesn't stop zooming the ability to zoom with the zoom lever.
