[No. of shots]

An indicator of whether the battery requires calibration. Calibration ensures the accuracy of the battery level display; after the battery has been charged a certain number of times, [j] will be displayed.

  • We recommend that you calibrate the battery when [j] is displayed ( Calibrating Batteries ).

  • []: Calibration not required.

[Battery age]

A five-level display showing battery age.

  • A value of “0” (k) indicates that battery performance is unimpaired.

Number of Shots

[No. of shots] shows the number of times the shutter has been released. Note that the camera may sometimes release the shutter without recording a photograph, for example when measuring preset white balance.

Charging Batteries at Low Temperatures

Batteries in general exhibit a drop in capacity at low ambient temperatures. Even fresh batteries charged at temperatures under about 5 °C (41 °F) may show a temporary increase from “0” to “1” in the value shown for [Battery age], but the display will return to normal once the battery has been recharged at a temperature of about 20 °C (68 °F) or higher.
