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.

Canon Rebel XS says it's busy


The only problem with SD card download stuff is that the LCD screen has to be working. If that is part of the problem, how can the instructions be followed?

A little hand with a no sogn through it and the word busy


The busy sign generally comes when:
Image is being recorded to the memory card, or playback mode is starting up.

It possible your memory card is full, please therefore down load your pictures and try again after erasing and reformating the memory card..
Alternatvely, please also reset all the camera ands menu settings to default.

Hope it works for you.

Canon 40D LCD Wont come on buSY flashes in view finder


Okay, this is simple. Your camera can take several pictures at one time in a burst. However when you release the shutter button your processor takes a second to actually SAVE the pictures to the card in the camera. One thing than has helped me in my wedding photography business is to buy the fastest speed cards I can find. It significantly reduced my "busy" time.
