Then I ain't coordinated - have to "stop" and think about it. I've also tried using the secondary zoom rocker on the end of the handle but my fingers just don't work that way.

At least the Sony came with a bag. :)
I never used the bag once - I threw mine away. Who has time to pack everything away with every new venue. Who has that kind of time? It's run and gun with wedding videography.

Anyway, I swear to God, may he/she/it strike me dead if I'm lying... I never even noticed about the controller until you brought it up. As a matter of fact... I soooo not noticed that I would have to go to my office to check to see if what you're saying is right. I believe you... but it's all very subconscious for me. And along those lines I have a mind boggling theory -maybe you'll be entertained? :p I grew up in an age of fanatical video gaming. An age when you have two choices... play "pong" or master the 20 button/position game controller. My hand/eye coordination was taken to olympic levels which the average non-gaming extraverted person could only dream of :p

So maybe you're point is valid for most people? I guess I'm not qualified to answer.

Naw... there's time. Just tell the B&G to take a long limo drive after the ceremony. Failing that, store your fishing gear in it.

By all means... do look for yourself. It's such a stupid design I'm actually wondering if an employee at the Sony plant dozed off and put mine in backwards.

I even tried taking it apart with the notion of reassembling it properly but the tiny screws are so cheap the heads stripped right away. But again for the record... the head and sticks are just dandy.
