I called Canon and they said they need someone to send in a camera that has this issue to be able to know what's going on. They told me they have the sx280 there and theirs doesn't have the battery issue.
I took mine back and ordered another one in hopes that it will be okay. We'll find out. I do trust that Canon will find a solution but boy what a hassle!

I have the same issue, and this is being discussed in another thread on this forum too.
Just now, movie mode was working fine, UNTIL I used the zoom. Then the battery icon began flashing. As before, I exited movie mode, turned the camera off and then on again, and the battery icon was normal.

Yes, I will post about my replacement however I won't receive it until next week.
Also I don't believe it's a short battery life issue. It's that the battery icon flashes AS IF it's low when shooting video, when it actually isn't low.
