EM1 focus peaking

Hi all, (EM1/metabones/ tamron 180mm macro). Because focus peaking worked intermittingly. I have assigned focus peaking to Fn2 which is good. but sometimes it starts video. any reasoning behind this?
kind regards Mike

Re: EM1 focus peaking

My only assumption is you're reaching over the Record button & not always making it properly onto the Fn2 button. I have the record button set to Keystone Compensation (when usually using AP), so at least it doesn't change (or start) anything until I move the dials.
