Greetings, I'm currently looking at the G5x for street shooting. It pretty much ticks all the boxes except the little front dial by the grip.As I'll be shooting single handed, I'm concerned that if assigned a function such as shutter speed my finger will move the dial when shooting because it looks and feels easy to do. Any thoughts on the matter will be appreciated. Thanks for reading.
I've had the G5X for a couple of months. I usually shoot in Aperture priority, and the front dial controls aperture. I don't recall ever accidentally changing a setting. However, I can see how it might happen.
FYI - at least for Aperture and Shutter priority modes, I don't think you can disable the front dial. In those modes, the front dial is set for Aperture and Shutter Speed respectively. In the menu, the front dial is "grayed out." You can't choose it to change it.
