If Canon is listening....................... Touch screen is nice, but there has to be a way to turn it off and on without turning off the camera. I am getting to like the touch screen on the M, but if you leave the camera on and the camera bounces around, all your settings have changed.
Did they use a resistive touchscreen or something?
I don't know what type of touchscreen it is. Or what kinds exist. But, so far as I know, there is no way to turn it off on the M. So, if you have the M on and bouncing around as you move, some of the settings will change (and you of course don't know which ones). So I have made it a habit of just turning the camera off between shots when I carry it, but would much prefer being able to leave it on, use the rudimentary controls to take quick shots and then be able to turn the touch on and off quickly to access other settings, etc.
On my cell phone, I use an app called Strava when biking. It uses GPS, etc., to track your route and tell you things like miles traveled, altitude gained, etc. (a nice, free app for those who like to keep track of where they have gone when hiking or biking). Anyway, in a recent update, they added a feature that turns the touch screen off on the phone after the app starts accumulating data. So, no inadvertent entries when you stick your phone in a pocket or whatever while biking. An easy swipe when you are done restarts the touch screen and you are good to go. Seems it wouldn't be hard to add to the M (maybe Magic Lantern has done it already?)
