    According to the pdf manual, the flashing icon called the "Camera Shake Warning" warns that "images are likely to be blurred by camera shake" Their solution is to mount the camera on a tripod or take other measures to keep it still. What measures it's referring to are not stated. The problem is that I get this flashing icon every time I push the shutter button half way. I get it in every mode except "IS" mode. Should I just ignore this icon or am I supposed to do something about it?

    Unfortunately the A1400 does not have optical image stabilization. If it did turning it on would greatly reduce the frequency of the shake warning. One thing you can do is make sure your ISO is set to auto and not to a low number like 100 or 200. You can also try using less zoom, which will enable your camera to use a wider aperture which should help you avoid blurry pictures in low light.

    Thanks for the reply Andy. I guess it's just telling me to use common sense. And, I suppose, since it's such a common occurence, one just learns to accept it as the norm.
