« on: July 17, 2016, 08:51:14 pm »

My camera says the battery has a  performance... I see one red dot.  What does this mean?

As batteries can only be recharged a limited number of times the ability (ie the number of shots you get from a recharge) to do this diminishes over their lifetime: yours is reaching the end of it. To quote the manual (page 212): "Purchasing a new battery is recommended".
