Nex 6 very poor battery life - only 100 shoots
Jan 5, 2013

Hi,

I have bought Sony nex 6 a week ago. The battery has been charged two times already. When I bought the camera and turned it on it showed the battery died almost immediately. So I recharged it for the first time from zero. I did the same the next time. However I am only able to get 100 shots on one charge which i find horrible. Cameras that I have used until now usually gave me 300-500 shoots. Do I have a faulty battery or is this normal for nex 6? I use it in AF mode and in extra power saving mode (the camera switches to sleep mode after 10 sec of not being used). Please advise.
