When I first power on my 5D, I sometimes inadvertently hit the control ring. This seems to change the shutter speed. I have not found a pattern yet, since I'm new, it just seems random, almost never the same.

I wonder how that works?
Can I keep it from happening?
& How do I set it back?

Thanks

The function of the wheel, which you are turning accidentially, has different functions depending on the mode. For instance, if you are in mode "P" you can increase (turn left) or decrease (turn right) the shutter speed. At the same time the aperture decreases or increases.
I have a 7D, which has even two wheels, and not 5D. Thus 5D owners may correct me.

I apologize that my nomenclature is confusing, unfortunately your profile does not identify what country you are from, but in the US manual,on page15, item 17, the controller is what I was referring to.
