Battery life is a joke, let's admit ( I carry four for a day's shooting).

Simply turn it off after taking each shot (unless you have another immediately planned of course) and you can halve that battery count.

Also set auto-off to the minimum possible values.

It's still nowhere near other cameras in battery life, yes, but that helps a ton.

Hmmmm ... I wonder if it is a good idea to make a camera that is always off and that turns itself on when you take it up for using it? And then turns itself off when you stop using it? A chimp detector could be used
