If I've misunderstood, sorry.
I shoot manual but I don't dive much into the settings. I'm terrible at the camera tweaking and have it mostly stock. Just set the Last Scene Review (right below WB) to the WB Set.

Don't you guys hate the button not doing what it says it's to do? Do you black it out or rewrite it, or just leave it as is and just know what it is now? Uggh that bugs me.

Re: X70 - update?

I use my cameras in the dark, and it is nearly impossible (even with the LCD lighting up the side panel) to be assured of hitting the right little button in the dark, I always end up hitting something I didn't mean to,

Even worse for me is that when live streaming is active, or network function for that matter, ALL the side buttons and custom buttons CEASE TO FUNCTION. It is totally irritating to loose things like Steadyshot on/off and white balancing when streaming. Same issue on the Z150.

I use a tiny piece of super strong sticky velcro tape applied to two of my often used buttons. Easy to locate without looking.

The location of the power button is perplexing to me, especially with it being the same (small) size as other buttons (WB, Display, PP etc)
