    New to Canon - AWB icon blinking / flashing on 7D LCD

    Hi All,

    Please pardon the potentially silly question above. Can anyone explain to me what a blinking / flashing "AWB" icon in the top left corner of the 7D LCD means? Auto AWB is selected btw.

    The meaning of this is eluding me....

    Have just jumped camp from m4/3, slowly getting the hang of it!

    Thanks everyone...
