Not sure how you can mistreat a built in rolling switch. I'm 67 and have been handling cameras in my own business for over twenty years without any previous dramas.

Yesterday I got the chance to play with my mate's brand new HC-X1. The first thing I noticed was how much more secure the menu switch felt, with much more friction in the roller. True!


So......maybe this is the answer? Fingers crossed.

And I know lots of ways to mistreat a built in rolling switch lol
