PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add the option to be alerted when the camera stops recording


PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add the option to be alerted when the camera stops recording. The number of times the recording has stopped and I didn't know for however many minutes is ridiculous and infuriating. This is an absolute necessity in this era of self-filming.

I've seen a product specialist in a different post mention that there is no alert so it doesn't interrupt the recording, but for the love of everything, make this a feature that we can turn ON/OFF at our own discretion. It can't be that hard to implement.

Greetings kprobbins,

I can understand your concern for having our Canon cameras provide an alert of when the video recording is interrupted or when the camera stops recording. I have submitted your feedback to our engineers for consideration and may be incorporated in future releases. Please note that decisions to incorporate a particular camera design are made by our engineers and product designers in Japan, based on a number of factors. Consumer demand, technological limitations, and customer feedback are all taken into consideration.


A light on the fron panel would be nice.  

In the meantime, ff your camera has a “floppy screen” swing it out and flip it forward.

"The right mouse button is your friend."

It does but it's either a distraction or can't be seen when blocked by a teleprompter.
