F717: What is this symbol in the LCD/finder mean?

I just got my F717 last night and have been getting familiar with it. One thing I noticed almost immediately is this one symbol that occasionally appears in the lower right-hand corner of the LCD/finder display:

it looks like three arrows pointing downwards towards a circular button-like thing, and appears in a cyan-like colour.

I have been through my F717 manual cover to cover and cannot see the meaning/purpose of this symbol defined anywhere in it, even though it appears in various pictures in the manual.

An inquiring mind (and new F717 owner) would like to know what this symbol means!

Thanks.
