XZ-1 Battery life with VF3 viewfinder
May 12, 2012

Hi

I've got a new Olympus XZ-1 and VF3 viewfinder. I'm only getting about 120-150 pictures from the battery when fully charged and when using the VF3. That's when walking around with the camera. I've got the sleep function set to 1 minute. I've charged the battery 4-5 times so far.

Is this typical? I thought the camera was rated a at around 300 shots from a charged battery, but presumably that's not with the viewfinder.

cheers
