D800 battery dead in 2 hours
Sep 11, 2012

Just FYI -

This weekend I had and event where I shot tethered to my laptop and printed on the spot. With Camera Control 2 Pro, it keeps the meter active the entire time...sort of like having the shutter pressed halfway. My D800 went from 98% to 1% in 2 hours. When I got home, I ordered another battery :).

My old D3 would have had about 30% left in a case like this but oh well. I just thought I'd mention it to anyone who might find themselves in the same situation. Bring a backup battery.
