My on screen view is showing a hand held up with a red slash across it


Hello,

On my Kodak camera, it means the camera was not steady when the picture was taken, so the picture could be blurred.

Hope this helps

CHA flashing on readout screen. Battery is fully charged. What does CHA mean?


If there are brackets around the CHR, it means the card is locked. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If there are no brackets around the CHR, it means the camera cannot read your memory card. Try a different card.

A small icon is displayed at bottom of screen It looks like a hand in brackets. (hand) What does it mean


It means that you may see bluriness in the photo due to camera shake. You will usually see this when the image is being shot indoors or in relative darkness, and you have the flash turned off. It will also be displayed if you are manually setting the shutter speed and have selected a very slow shutter speed for the conditions.

If you see this symbol, try turning on the flash, getting more light on the subject, or use a tripod or place the camera on a very stable surface when taking the shots.

How do I turn off the flash for a coolpix 885?


There is a dedicated button (with the symbol of a lightning) for the flash. To turn off flash, press the button (maybe repeatedly) till the flash indicator on screen shows 'lightning with a circle around it'. To set it back, press the same button till the display shows Lightning and A.

Search on the Internet, you will definitely find a soft copy of the User Manual of your camera.

Sluggish picture taking, unknown symbols on screen


I just looked it up in my manual, and the exclamation mark with the waving hand means: 'There is a strong likelihood of camera shake because the shutter speed is slow.' The remedy to this is: 'Use flash photography. However, use a tripod for some scenes and modes.'

It sounds like you need to adjust your shutter speed. I'm no expert and I consult my manual often, so if you need any assistance doing this or anything else, feel free to ask.

Vibration hand image showing


Hand sign/ image means "manual focus" it doesn't mean anti-vibration. Press Focus button to cancel manual focus and ON the auto-focus. Hand symbol will disappear.
