Question about Canon GL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My Cannon XM2(PAL) is displaying this red symbol flashing. It looks like a bowl, crossed out with an arrow above it pointing at it. I can't figure out what it means. It's on the right side beside the remote control symbol. It's there in Camera and Play mode.
It means you have no back up battery installed to save time/date info. I know on the GL2 if you open the LCD screen there is another small plastic tab you can open and insert a relatively small battery. Do it and the icon will disappear. Otherwise its no big deal. If you dont need time/date stamps on your tapes then there is no need to install the battery unless you are just annoyed.

It means no flash card installed
no problem just switch the camera to record to tape instead
