The X100 OK button trick!
I found this at RFF. Rich posted that if you hit the control dial squarely with your thumb, it does the OK button easily.
I tried it and it works.
Just use your thumb and hit the entire dial and whallah!

I think you guys have bigger thumbs than, I do. Were you having problems getting it to do the OK thing, Don?

No, but this works...dunno.
There's been many complaints about the OK button but it's OK for me...
It's just sumptin I founded and tought waz cool...

I can't stop thinking of the character named Sissy Hankshaw in Tom Robbins "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues", for those of us who are of that era...and/or remember the girl with the enormously large thumbs.

a girlfriend gave me that book for (I think) my 20th birthday ... time has erased all but one memory of the plot, except for one image ... which I will not share for fear of offending your delicate sensibilities ...

Yes, plus it might be too racy for the site in general. I enjoyed the book tremendously way back then...1976. Long, long time ago...but I digress.
Back to the OK button!
I actually find that when I am using the dial around the OK button that I kind of just push away...and get what I want. Thankfully, I don't need to do it too often...except when I want to delve deeply...which I may find I want to do more of, not sure just yet.

Ahh yeah, Tom Robbins. Got me through many a night in college when I couldn't be bothered to actually study. My daughter likes him now - I try reading him now and it makes my head hurt. I don't think he wrote/writes for old people!
I've never had trouble with the OK button. I don't have to use it much at all on the fly, and I can push it with my thumbnail even if the meat of my thumb is a bit large for it. But things like that NEVER bother me - I recall the HUGE controversy over the control ring on the Canon S90 (people HATED it) but I never had a moment's problem with it.
