I just purchased a DMC-FZ8; barely got 20 shots on it so far. Anyone else think the power switch is in a bad spot?
The camera powered on as I slid it back into my Lowepro Ridge30 bag
, I didn't notice till I saw the screen was on when I went to zip it. I pulled the camera out fearing the worst, it said something about powering off and turning on again. I did so and took some more shots and all appears ok.
Right now I'm putting the camera in playback mode instead of record mode before putting it in the bag (so the lens can't try to expand) but this is an extra hassle I rather not deal with.
Anyone have any suggestions? Maybe I should look for a different bag? But I"m sure this is going to be an issue with any bag.
