Meaning of Green square icon on upper left corner


\015 When I take a picture, a lime green square icon appears in the upper left corner. I have never seen this icon in the past. Can someone please tell me the meaning? \015\012Also, since the icon has appeared, I can no longer view the picture immediately after taking it and must turn to "slide show" to see if the picture needs to be re-taken. \015\012\015\012I have just had the camera replaced for a broken CF card eject and didn't know if there is a connection. \015\012\015\012Thanks,\015\012Linda\015

Answers :

I have the same camera. The green square icon appears while the camera is saving the picture. From your description, I think you were using "Shot Confirmation", and this setting was cleared during the repairs.\015\012\015\012Have you tried going into the Setup mode (on the dial) and reselecting Shot Confirmation? (p. 143 in the manual)

If you have another lens, switch it and take some shots of the sky. If the spot is gone, it probably was the lens that needs cleaning/servicing.

My LCD goes partially black when I turn the camera on and shows a diagonal display of the photo from the upper left hand to lower right hand corners. The amount not black is not sufficient to take photos. I can make the LCD give a full display if I "jiggle" the photo settings devise from view to photo. I have tried this about thirty times and it always restores the LCD. I asked Canon Service Tech Support if the problem merited repair. Of course they said yes, but the flat rate they charge
