Blinking hand and exclamation point- less focus

I do not think my camera has fallen, but it now has a warning symbol on it that looks like a hand with an exclamation sign beside it.  At the same time, my camera is not taking good pictures, so I assume the warning is related.  Any idea how to fix this?  Thanks!

I had that same problem for quite some time. Finally tonight I reset the camera on the little button by the memory card. I've taken about 20 shots where I've purposely had my subject moving around and taken the shot (not caring to hold dead still). So far - a DRASTIC improvement. I'm sooooo excited and hope it's a permanent fix!!!

It's a vibration indicator. My camera has just begun doing it too. It's on P.17 of the manual.

What does the symbol !! mean at the end of a sentence


The exclamation mark (British English and Commonwealth English) or exclamation point (American English) is a punctuation mark usually used after an interjection or exclamation to indicate strong feelings or high volume (shouting), and often marks the end of a sentence. Example: "Watch out!" Similarly, a bare exclamation mark (with nothing before or after) is often used in warning signs.

I have a warning signal on my dash board but I don't know what it means. It looks like an amber exclamation mark inside parentheses with a flat bottom.


I think its your handbrake warning sign...try to check your handbrake warning sign switch..may be the switch is shorted.

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.

Warning on screen: exclamation with hand


That sign tell you the camera is "out of focus".
If use the manual mode, use a trypod or change to automatic mode.

Red hand symbol is flashing on the view screen


This is the sign warning you that the shutter speed is slow so camera shake is a problem. It means use a tripod or support the camera because holding by hand will cause blurred pictures that you see. When you see this sign you can either try to get more light on the subject or support the camera. This sign will also come on the low light conditions. Look at the shutter speed & you will see that this symbol will appear when it falls to about 1/60th of a second. Using a tripod is the best idea especially for a panoramic shot as when it is on the tripod you can turn the camera through 180 degrees taking overlapping shots then "stitch" them together in Photoshop or whichever software you use to create a single large panorama. If you don't have a tripod then put the camera on a wall or lean against something to give you more support. Good Luck!
