    Can anyone tell me what this icon is and how to turn it off so it does not display? I checked the manual and it looks like a flash icon?. Thanks!

    Cool
    Page 67 of the GH5s manual...

    Which I'm guessing means that a flash won't fire if it's mounted in the hot-shoe and turned on.

    Thanks for the reply TheDingo! Perhaps that forced flash icon came on because I shot with the XLR mic adapter on the hot shoe yesterday.

    Bingo. I shoot with the XLR shoe also, but I never paid attention to the "forced flash off" icon. Seems like an odd icon to put on the screen. ( it's too bad the XLR adapter couldn't be detected and then an XLR icon could appear instead )
