Disappointed with D4 Battery....
Jan 7, 2012

The D4 looks pretty good. Not good enough to warrant an upgrade from D3s.

The battery looks pretty weak. I use LV with Pc-e lens frequently. I find that the D3s with its estimated 4200 shoots per charge doesn't last long when using LV or video modes..

With the D4 coming in much lower, Video, Live View 2600 shoots per charge, this is surely going to affect field work.

The D3s Battery RRP is roughly £100.. Two can last a one day assignment.

The D4 might cost more to run if you see what I mean. I wonder what Nikon were thinking with the battery?

I would be interested in hearing real time shooting experience once the camera comes into circulation.
