SX 60 HS There is a flashing red camera icon

There is a flashing red camera icon after I press the shutter button halfway. I can't seem to find out what that means. I searched the user manual,. Perhaps, I am just missing it or calling it the wrong thing. Or perhaps it is so obvious that it doesn't need to be called out specifically.

Any help would be appreciated.

I believe that is the "camera shake"  warning. Here's the advice from the user manual page 175

Hi Scoles15,

 

That flashing camera icon is an indicator for camera shake and that you should probably use a tripod or flash since the shutter speed is most likely very slow. Page 175 of the user manual provides the following information to deal with the issue:

I hope that  helps you!

Thank you for the quick response. I'm not why I didn't realize what it meant:-(.
