Default Blinking red hand?

In Program, Shutter Priority & Apertutre Priority modes, there's a flashing red hand. I also dee it in Macro mode. What is it?

Thanks.

It means the shutter speed is slow, and camera shaking could cause a blurred image. Should this happen, use a tripod or a flash, or increase the shutter speed.

Thanks, CK. I thought it actually *meant* that I wasn't holding the camera steadily.
