Hi,

Ive noticed with my W1 that under certain modes a small sybol appears that I think someone mentioned once as a shakey hand symbol.

Is this because I am moving the camera too much during taking the photograph?

Or...a warning that I must not cause much movement furing takinga photograph ie. under dim light or twilight modeetc?

I have noticed that while it may appear in P mode with flash unselected that if I select flash 'on' this symbol will cease to appear.



Any input would be much appreciated guys and girls

If believe it is an error as it also is present if the camera is mounted on a tripod and absolutely still.

Perhaps it is just indicating that you should "be aware"...

That's the answer. It is just letting you know that it is choosing a shutter spead that will require a steady hand. If the flash is activated then there's less need to worry so you won't get the "shaky hand" warning.

It isn't an intelligent symbol, it's just to draw your attention to the fact that a shutter speed of longer than 1/30th (I think) of a second is being used and that camera shake is a risk.
