Situation: big hands, little DX7630, some pix exposed right, others badly overexposed.

Cause: camera-holding fingers sliding over the tiny light sensor in the body, about 10:00 in relation to the lens, looking at the front of the camera.

Solution: drawing a line of clear dimensional fabric paint along the handy, tiny valley between the dark gray rubbery hand grip and the light gray slippery camera body.

Now when holding the camera, I have a little finger-dam to keep my digits from causing exposure damns.

p.s., my brand is clear Fasion Dimensional fabric paint from Plaid Enterprises. Enough to treat several thousand cameras, 79 US cents,

You could also try using a Hama Cameras flash bracket, makes holding small cameras easy, nice big grip on one side.

First, I wish Hama was generally distributed in the States. They used to be, and they had good, often inexpensive camera gear.

Second, many years ago, I snagged a Bronica grip for $1off a photo store orphaned and dented table. Anyone remember camera stores?

The latest iteration of the grip is going for around $200 (for the grip alone!) - you can see one attached to the Bronica at http://www.adorama.com/US%20%20%20%20174290.html

My Kodak DX7630 would fit inside the lens of the camera shown there... anyway, I'll be using the grip (and looking ridiculous, grip bigger than cam), but lots of times I'll be grabbing shots too fast to affix the grip.

Hence, my slight camera modification.
