Re: HLD-6 Lock doesn't lock all!

I have now made a leather covered pad to surround the portrait shutter button & front wheel to minimise accidental pressing of the shutter button (even when it is supposed to be locked).

The first is the aluminium plate (that got reshaped a little after this shot).

The leather covered pad is fixed in place with thick black double sided tape.

Not perfect but functional (I may remove the leather & reshape it a little more). It also feels better when holding in landscape position too.

I hope this can be helpful for anyone else that has similar issues.

I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
