    ETA on part arrival is 3 weeks. I have asked Panasonic to supply faster than this."

    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!

    Hello, I had a Panasonic HPX-250, I had to take it to the service technician 4 times for power switch failure, the camera stopped, the software was updated, the switch was changed ... the camera was still faulty Of the situation I finished to get rid of her, greetings.

    I agree, there are a lot of ways to abuse any part on a camera, including the jog wheel.

    I think, Who has been producing cameras for many years, Such an annoying mistake should not be allowed
    Why should this be charged to the users?
    It is a product intended for industrial use, not home camera.
    Reliability is very important!

    Finally got my DVX 200 back from it's second repair, and this time it has the "redesigned" menu roller.

    It certainly has more friction in it, feels more secure and just like my mate's HC-X1 that I mentioned in a previous post.

    Hopefully that will be the end of the fun and games!

    Cheers,

    Vaughan
