If your GR should freeze.

While shooting today something I did caused my GR to freeze up. It would not shut down and no functions operated, but the screen was still on with a very blurry image and the lens was extended still. I have a feeling I may have depressed some random button on the back as I was trying to take a shot and gave the camera a confused request. I ejected the battery and it turned on and functioned normally.

Don't be scared. Like I said, I think it was something I did that caused it. I lost my balance while kneeling and grabbed the camera while depressing the shudder in an odd way, possibly pressing two buttons at once. It took three seconds to reset the camera.

Yes, I am certain my GR is completely fine.

This happened to me a couple weeks ago while I was shooting while sitting in a hot tub with a ton of steam coming off for a 5 minutes or so. Worked fine and suddenly froze. I put the camera down away from the tub, pulled the battery and it started right back up like nothing had happened. Hasn't done it since.
