More obvious when 5DII is (not) recording
« on: June 08, 2015, 12:36:12 PM »
I shoot underwater videos, and my housing makes the corners of the LCD less visible.  Sometimes I'm rapidly recomposing my shot, and I'll occasionally think I'm recording when I'm not, and vice versa.  I would love to be able to have a big white X  or "OFF" or something like that on my LCD when I am not recording, or anything more obvious than the absence of the small red dot in the corner.  I know it makes me sound like an idiot, but I have been filming underwater with this camera for years, and it still happens to me.  I get lots of video of me re-composing, and miss a lot of the good shots, then I swear at myself a lot.
