Flashing icon when taking pics

Every once in awhile I get a flashing red icon in the bottom left corner of my screen when taking a picture. The icon looks like a camera with two bracket type things off the sides. What does this mean?

Based on the settings that your camera is in, it is telling you that you are at risk of camera shake. This is just telling you that you can expect to see a blurry picture if you continue to take that picture and that it will slow down the shutter speed to achieve the proper exposure and that is why you are at risk of camera shake. The longer the shutter is open, the more chance that you are going to move so to solve this you have a few options:

  • turn up ISO
  • use tripod
  • use flash
Hope this helps!

I have just purchased Canon Powershot A480


I think the "busy" part can be put down to the camera performing a function or recharging the flash. The red icon I THINK shows that the camera is focussing.

With the last model it worked so that you could half press the button to focus on something (eg a fast moving pet) and then once your pet stopped moving your could fully press the button to take a photo and the focus distance would remain the same.

How do i take pics?


Well, the easiest way is to use the botom button on the right side (edge) of your phone.

The other way is to press the Main Menu button on the main screen. This is the middle icon at the bottom of the screen that has 4 dots then go to Media Center.
Select Pictures & Video then Take Picture.

Point and press the camera button (bottom right edge)

To switch between Video and Pictures, press and hold down the camera button until either the camera icon or the video (movie camera) icon appears.

Once you take the picture, you have to select the second icon down on the right to save it to the phone.

A red image pops up when I take a pic


I chose the DMC-TZ3A since I didn't know what the letter was at the end of the model number for your particular camera. If this is the camera

Here is a link to the manual

If not

Here is link to the Lumix series cameras

Pg 25 indicates that flashing red in the upper right corner is the battery needing to be recharged. If the battery was recently recharge and its turning red on the screen, it could be that the battery isn't holding a charge and may need to be replaced.

I didn't see any other error messages on the screen indicating that icon unless b,c, or d models have a different error message in that area of the screen.
