50D battery usage question
Dec 11, 2009

Just got my 50D, and am already deeply in love with it, but there is a fly in the ointment: After fully charging the battery and shooting about 300 non-flash pics, the battery was almost drained!

I re-charged it, and this time only got to about 250 frames before the charge indicator was at or near the bottom.

I've already ordered a new battery (I'm going to want two in any case), but if the new one drains as quickly as this one, I'm thinking I'll have to send the camera to Canon service...

Any other 50D owners have useful info on this situation?
