UPDATED May 5:
I apologize to the forum for mixing two different problems. They are unrelated.
Problem #1: User error. I thought I was using a class 6 SD card but I was wrong. The yellow "!" indicates a pathologically slow card. Upgrading to a class 10 resolved this problem.
Problem #2: UNRESOLVED. Red battery indicator comes on prematurely. On a fresh charge, it'll turn red after recording for a couple of minutes. On a partially drained battery, it turns red immediately upon entering movie mode or pressing the record button. Turn the camera off and then right back on in "still" mode and it shows full charge and works fine ... until trying to shoot video. I have not precisely measured recording times but it'll record for at least 20 (maybe 30?) minutes while flashing red.
Hi! I'm a beginner and I'd like to ask you guys some things.
I was considering buying a SX270, but now I'm skeptical about it.
As crazy as it may sound I would need just taking photos, and not so much videos.
However, I wouldn't like to have issues like battery runing low sign on the camera or like the camera shutting down.
I read that turning the camera off and on again sometimes helps. Still it doesn't sound that nice.
I saw that Mylze found that a SanDisk Extreme Plus SDHC UHS-I memory card would increase battery life.
My questions are as follows:
(1) If I use sx270+a fast memory card (up to 80MB/s) just for stills, will I get a reasonable battery lifetime?
(2) What serial number would ensure the Firmware 18.104.22.168?
(3) Does anyone know if Canon Powershot SX 510 HS has the same battery problems?
