5N poor battery life
Mar 17, 2012

The only thing I'm not happy about with my 5N (it generally gets better every day) is that the battery doesn't last long. I've seen quotes of 300 shots and one field review http://petersills.wordpress.com/2011/12/08/sony-nex-7-a-week-in-havana/ stated they got 1000 shots in two batteries with the nex 7.

I think I'm getting sub 100 and I don't do a lot of messing about in menus and the camera is set to power off off after 10 secs.

Is this acceptable life?
