Default Bad experience with cp5700

Hello everyone, I've almost had a nightmare this morning (perhaps morning mare, heheh), my cp5700 turned on accidentaly when i was going to put it in my cp11 bags, and as you all know the lens starting to move forward, but blocked by the inner side of the bag, when i checked, it does'nt want to work, and can't to turn off, i plugged the battery and try to turn it on again, it can't, i try 2-3 times and it turned on, but an error message appear, said that the lens was error, i try to turned it off and on once more, and thanx god it works fine till now.....well i think we should be more careful with the cp5700 "very easy to turn" on/off button! (how my english? i'm an indonesian...you all know bali don't you?)

very beautiful country

yes you do have to be careful with a electric zoom they are more prone to problems if mishandled and are expensive to repair.

I'm peeved that I can't use the on-camera flash with the lens hood attached but I've decided to leave the lens hood on che camera all the time because it acts as a big rubber "bumper" to protect the lens.

I'll buy an external flash unit and carry it in my bag on along with a stroboframe quick flip.

In a pinch if I want to use the on camera flash and I don't have my other gear with me I'll remove the hood. <grumble>

Default Here's a trick...

Set your camera to "Play" mode before putting it into your bag. This way, even if the power button is accidentally switched ON, the lens will not extend. Picked up this trick from other forums. Works for me.

I am not happy with how easily the 5700 accidentally gets turned on. It's bad design.

covey22, thanks for that great tip about keeping the camera on "play" to prevent the lens from extending when accidentally switched "on".

inoino, i'm very sad about the bombing in bali. i have been going there almost every year since the 1980s. indonesians are a wonderful people. take care. (saya orang pilipina).

Both beautiful countries - Indonesia and the Philippines! Of course, I'm biased as a expatriate Pinoy. Very sad about the recent events in Bali....
