Shots/charge on the battery?
May 8, 2012

I received my D800E on Monday. I fully charged the battery and have shot less than 100 frames with no lens having VR. My 1DsIII will deliver more than 500 shots and the 5DII just over 450

The battery indicator is showing slightly less than half gone.

1. Has anyone kept track of how many shots you can get on the fully charged battery?

2. Does anyone know if this number will increase with time/charging cycles like the D200 battery did?
3. Will the number of shots be higher if you are shooting in DX mode vs FX mode?

4. I'll check it out tomorrow but does anyone know what the availability of back up batteries is? I am guessing it is not good.
