Screen icons

Wouldn't it be great if Canon were a little more considerate with their on screen icons?

When you have all on view when recording the arrangement is so haphazard and I'm sure they could be arranged well into the black bars top and bottom in the same way as the shutter and Fstop ones are.

And while we're at it, maybe a much simpler, smaller M for manual instal of the icon?

Jus' sayin'

Re: Screen icons

Given that I use reading glasses these days, I mostly wish that the sun and lightbulb icons didn't look so similar. I can get away without the glasses for a lot of adjustments, but not that one.

Re: Screen icons

I'm the same Jon. The ol' glasses don't half get in the way. Especially shooting out doors on a sunny day when it's off with the sunspecs, on with the reading specs, and then backů

I only usually use the Kelvin settings though so the sun and bulbs aren't an issue. but I think it could have been arranged more neatly.

Sometimes it would help if manufacturers just stopped for a second and thought. "Now what would Apple do in this situationů" HA!
