6D warning viewfinder icons I'm stumped.
« on: March 17, 2013, 05:07:25 PM »
I see an exclamation point (!)next to the battery icon when I look through the viewfinder of my 6D. I haven't found any problems with the camera, but I'd still like to know what the warning is about. Does anybody have an answer?

From the manual (page 313 of the English one):

Quote
When any of the following functions are set, the <!> icon can be displayed on the lower left in the viewfinder:

- When monochrome picture style is set
- When WB is corrected
- When ISO expansion is used
- When spot metering is set


You can configure which settings trigger the ! icon (including none of them) in the custom function described on that page of the manual.
