    The button is too hard to find and too easy to accidentally hit. I wish Panasonic would've used the location/design of the front button on the EM5ii.

    So rather than disable the button I was thinking of making the button more pronounced. Sure I could probably end up accidentally hitting it more. My hypothesis is that if I could feel the button then I’m less prone to accidentally hitting it.

    I want to try Sugru, but at ~$25 shipped it seems a little steep.

    Any other ideas? I’ve seen the red buttons you can attach to the shutter button but those seem too big.

    I cut a couple of really small squares of gaffer tape and layered them on the button. I can now feel the button much easier.

    Aw, too late. I was going to suggest your local craft store and buy a cheap bag of assorted stick on Googly Eyes. One of the smaller ones would have looked great on the front staring at everyone. :)

    They're best in pairs. I hate cycloptic bodies.
