As we all know that have this camera, the battery life sucks out of the box. I have 4 batteries and number them so I use and charge them equally. I am keeping  a record of how each battery performs over time and noting the kind of shooting each charge experienced.

Up until now, the best performance I have gotten is 326 shots, raw only, moderate chimping.

YesterdayI had a shoot where I shot almost exclusively with a remote flash, raw + normal jpeg, lots of chimping to check what my strobe was doing. I only turned the camera off a couple times during this period. On one charge I just got 688 shots.  It was my #2 battery and it perviously was the one that gave me the 326 shots. I have another battery that goes dead after about 145 shots.

I really hope this is a sign that these batteries  might improve like  my XP1 batteries did.

PS- There were 1376 shots that actually wrote to the card.

those 688 shots were mostly shooting outside with flash like this. I so surprised considering the amount of chimping I did.

Love that photo!
