This modification is available, for a fee, to owners of these cameras who would prefer a Mode Dial which locks in place and can't be accidentally moved during normal camera operation.

Once modified, users must first press and hold down the central lock-release button in order to turn the Mode Dial. The modification is intended to prevent the Mode Dial from accidentally moving, once set to a particular exposure mode by the user.
