do you mean that when you press the shutter button you see a green hexagon in the viewfinder?? if yes, just means you've locked in focus on what you are shooting....

no not in the viewfinder.. the one you use to turn off and turn on the camera. If you turn it to the left it will switch off and to the right it will turn the camera on.

ohh that

that is the "preview" button, or "depth of field preview"

your camera probably has two options that you can set through the menu controls.

when you slide it and hold it while looking through the viewfinder, it will step-down to the aperture that you selected, so you can see how the photo will ACTUALLY look like (remember, all viewing is done with the lens wide open)

you can alternatively do the digital preview and see the photo on your LCD screen.. although at that point oyu might as well just take the photo :/

Yes, it is the DOF preview button and if you have set it on the menu to do the digital DOF, then the photo it will take and get previewed on the LCD would not be written on the memory card.
Once you touch another button..it's gone.

If you have it set to digital preview pressing the fn button on the rear of the camera will allow you to save the exposure.
