Unknown icon on a Canon G9

\015 On the right side of the display on my camera I have a single hand with two curved lines either side. I've looked through the manual but I cannot find the icon anywhere? Does anyone know what this icon means and how, or if, it can be\302\240removed\302\240from the screen.\015

Answers :

This shows up to tell you image stabilization is on. usually it happens when the shutter speed is on the slow side because of low light or when you zoom. if the hand is red, it may mean that you have a very slow shutter speed and will likely get a blurry image unless you are photographing a still subject and using a tripod.
This is the anti-shake image stabilization (IS) icon. It just means that the camera will assist you in taking crisper shots even if your hands are not super steady.\015\012
\015\012To turn it off, press the "Menu" button and then scroll down the first tab until you get to "IS". Then, use the directional control buttons to choose whether it is always on, sometimes, or off.

My LCD screen on my Canon Power shot G3 is blank (just white). There are no icons; no viewing of things I wish to photograph. I called customer support they said there was no problem with the CCD image sensor on G series cameras per the Canon service letter of 10/6/05.I would have to pay about $135 plus shipping to get it fixed or trade for another camera which would cost me money also. I'm not happy with this because I assumed that Canon would fix the problem if it appeared on the G series. Ple

I can't get photos to upload from my Canon S500. Always in the past I just made the USB connection and I got a dialog screen telling me what to do. Now I have a new computer (running Vista, just got my Windows 7 upgrade and haven't loaded it yet), and it gave me a short message about "driver installed and then nothing--no icon, no nothing. It does make a sound when I connect and disconnect the camera. I went to the Canon site and they say there's no special software to download for this.

Just purchased a canon A590. on page 84 of user guide, continuous shooting is described. I'm somewhat familiar with SD cards, but Canon implies that I have to use their MSH type SD card to use the continuous shooting feature. When I look at the drive modes in my camera, I only see 4 possible modes....single pic, 10 sec delay, 2 second delay, and delay continuous. There is an icon for continuous shooting in the book, but it does not appear on my camera. Why?


I don't own an A590 but I've been handling cameras since the Kodak Instamatic days, so I'll try to help you. I checked out the Canon website for the A590. and they don't specifically state the MSH type SD card. The camera can do 1.4 fps or frames p ... Canon Digital Cameras

Canon s21s I bought my camera in March 2006 and have not had a problem until 2 weeks ago. Both the viewfinder and LCD screen are black when trying to take a picture but the icons remain on the screen.

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!


Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera

Hand Icon I just bought the Canon SD850 IS & am familiarizing myself with it. (or trying to) As soon as I inserted the memory card an icon showed up at the bottom of the LCD.
