Hi all.
On my 7590, when I use the LCD viewer at night I get a red dot that flashes in between the flash icon and the megapixel output indicator, it's about the size of a pinhead and can be sometimes hard to see but it is there for sure.
Any ideas as to what this is ? I've been meaning to ask this for a while now and hope I explained this properly.

could it possibly be something telling you that it's not a clear picture? I know on my Z740, that when you press the shutter button lightly for it to focus, that you will get either a red dot or a green dot. Green being that the settings are correct for what it's reading. Doesn't always work out that way...lol But perhaps it's something similar? I dunno...

Sounds like the auto forcus/autoexposure indicator. Red flash means failed, green is successful. Got that out of manual for my DX7590.

Still like to see that photo WAG. You've had that camera long enough to know what the red and green ball are for so i figure it's something else!

Ok I had to try for myself. Turned out the lights. I took shots with and without flash. I tryed it with the DX6490's (two of them). I tryed it with the DX7590. I tryed it with the Z7590. I tryed it with green eggs and ham, and I never found a red dot the size of a "pinhead". See what ya can get us WaGaBooHoo.
