Today I took my canon 1DX for a outdoors festival shooting, and it was very humid my 1DX started to read in my metering that I had a FLASH attached, I had to keep turn it off and on in order to get it to read right. Anyone else have this problem?

The other thing the adjustment at the viewer my hand keeps turning the dial, and when I look at my pictures through the viewer they are off.. I HATE THAT DIAL

Not that familiar with that body but they should be a lock for the dial , and the other problem is your camera thinking that there is a flash attached if so look under the rail where the flash goes and there is a switch that gets stuck at times a well documented fix .

No and No remember I said it kept going away when I rebooted the camera

I don't understand what you mean. "Read in my metering"; What's that supposed to mean? What is it reading? Where do you see any indication that you have a flash mounted and powered?

The other thing the adjustment at the viewer my hand keeps turning the dial, and when I look at my pictures through the viewer they are off.. I HATE THAT DIAL

Are you referring to the dioptric setting? That is impossible to adjust with the eyecup on, so just leave that mounted and your problem is solved. If it's some other thing, use the proper name for it, or I don't understand which "adjustment" you are talking about.

By the way, adjust your text size to "2", and it will be more pleasant for us to read.
