    Do you press ISO button with your nose?

    The question might sound weird, but it happens to me from time to time with my D7100.

    Initially, I had no idea what was going on. I had camera in aperture-priority mode, I aimed and tried to change aperture by turning the command dial and... nothing would happen. I looked at the camera, tried again, and then everything would be fine. Only after this happened to me a few times I noticed that sometimes ISO would change from a fixed value to auto. And then an illumination came!

    When I look through the viewfinder, my nose is exactly where the ISO button is and if I press the camera against my face too hard, I'd press the ISO button with my nose. And then, of course, the command dial would switch between fixed and auto ISO, instead of changing the aperture.

    Did it happen to anyone else? Or is it just a my face and nose size such a rare coincidence?

    Can't say that I have, and if I did then I didn't notice it. I do have quite the shnoz and it leaves quite the streak across the LCD protector. LOL

    The D700 has the ISO button where the rewind crank is on film cameras so it would be quite a stretch. I do have a protector with louvers over the LCD though. As far as I know, the D3 and D700 were the only ones for which they made these covers. I know they would sell easily if they made them for other cameras as well.

    As I explained in a different thread, I'm right-eye dominated and use it for the viewfinder.

    Not on my D71oo so much but on my D80 I used to press something with my face. Can't remember what now tho. Not sure what the difference is.....camera or my technique.
    I do find tho that I leave greasy smears all over the LCD viewfinder with my face. I'm a right eye user too

    Re: Do you press ISO button with your nose?

    This morning I checked to see if my nose reached the ISO button. No matter whether my right eye or my left eye is looking through the viewfinder, my nose cannot reach the ISO button. Then this afternoon while shooting somehow I inadvertently switched the ISO from 400 to 250. It must have been how I was holding the camera--I know my intention was to change the aperture, but somehow I must have pressed the ISO button while turning the wrong wheel. I'm wondering if this is what happened to you?
