    Took my iPhone 6 to the zoo today and really put it through its paces as a camera. On more than one occasion I accidentally hit the power button while trying to snap a picture using the volume rocker. I guess I'm "holding it wrong" and will have to retain myself to move my thumb off the power button. Seems like an odd design decision by Cupertino.

    Anyone else experience this yet? I ended up using the onscreen camera button to avoid missing any moments.

    It was necessary because it's too big now to have it where it was. Also, POST ZOO PICS please :))

    1. Post zoo pictures.
    2. Did not experience that ...
    3. It needs to be on the side for people to reach it.
    4. Try this: only press it if you feel TWO buttons at once :)

    Necessary to be on the side, but not at the exact same level as the volume button. Many other side-power button phones have them offset precisely for this reason.

    These are all zoomed in, which I typically never do on a phone.

    I have the same issue with the buttons. Trying to train myself to not have a problem but it's not gong very well. The Apple leather case makes it even worse because the case covers over the buttons, even harder to locate them.

    I'm curious, did it seem to run your better down pretty good? I used my camera for a good 30 mins before and it did damage on the battery life.
