RX10M4: prevent grease inside the shutter button

The hair dryer tip is getting popular as the RX10M4 is getting extensively used more often. It' good to know. Many thanks to the ones who found it and the ones who promoted the tip.

I wonder a little bit that another tip doesn't come along with the hair dryer tip:

Close the hole for the shutter release cable by screwing in a soft release button.

This should prevent grease to enter the shutter button. But maybe there is some sort of grease inside the button after manufacturing - who knows.

Nevertheless, this is a kind of soft shutter release button:

Good luck and good light
