Haha. You could ask someone to do it for you... friends, girlfriend, ...
I'd rather not... GF is already in charge of the audio, though (and last time did a swell job!)

You'd have to qualify that with 'on purpose' given the position of the button on K5 family. I get the same stupid feeling when that pops out like when I turn on the wipers when turning in my wife's car (levers are opposite).

K5 - tested it for five seconds the first day I had it.
K20 - never tried it. Does it exist?

This sounds like a 'Schrodinger's cat' type question!

So really the only purpose of this thread is to confirm your BELIEF that no one wants video? What's the point?!
He was trolling for you! And now that you are here, welcome!

...focus peaking, which I also trigger with the neck strap by mistake from time to time...
...must buy a sling strap and attach it to the tripod plate...
And, just like cxdoo, the other strap anchor is right next to the pop-up flash/DELETE PICTURE button... :-|

Hm. With the stock neck strap I don't trigger anything by accident.

Removing the flash... I don't think I would miss it too much. I rarely use it, and it takes space and money to integrate it...

I think it is interesting to think why I would use video.


I first encountered photography as a matter of stills. So I think in terms of single images which might be linked in display to form some kind of arrangement, including a story.


Movies are a wonder art form when done by people with the resources to edit it all to make a good story, and the skill necessary. But I am not interested in that and know I do not want to make videos which I would inflict on others to their distraction.


But something I did like with a little P&S was video which I sometimes used to capture 'technical' videos which I used in lectures etc to show how things work. But the short snippets of video completely relieved me of needing to make a coherent story - the point was in a single short segment. That is much more like a 'moving picture'. So having video as a secondary function is reasonable for that kind of work and technical limitations are there to be worked around. A full power video camera is needed if one wants to make movies, or something with a good story to it.
