I'm looking at the G5x for street shooting. As I shoot one-handed, I notice that the small front dial by the grip interferes with my finger. So, I wouldnt' want to assign a function to that dial as it would probably move and change the setting such as shutter speed. I'm looking for a workaround but it seems a shame to have a dial that can't be safely assigned. Your thoughts?
Thanks for reading.
Interesting, thanks for the reply. At the camera store I was told that it could be assigned various functions such as shutter speed. Still a mystery, I guess. Take care.
You should be able to download the instruction manual from the Canon site to find out for sure.
Yes I looked thru his manual quickly and did not see anything about reassigning any buttons at all. And the front dail is only mentioned for playing back pictures
As far as what salespeople tell us, its wiser to be an informed consumer in most cases. Those people have dozens of cameras and products to sell and unless they are devoting their lives to learning all the details you will get some incorrect answers now and then.
You can assign various functions, to buttons, dials and rings. I would recommend downloading the manual. Then it's easy to do a search and find what you need. ( easier to read than that tiny book also) I searched for assign and a bunch of items came up.
one place to start would be menu, tab 2, function assignment. Think that was page 101 in the downloaded manual.
