D600, bad battery life or bad battery?
Feb 12, 2014

So, one thing I've noticed about my d600 that I hate is the battery life is abysmal! I can get a day of shooting (8-10 hours with minimal LCD use). Which is ok I guess since I can charge it overnight. But if I fully charge it, take a couple shots and forget to turn it off it will be completely dead by morning! Why? Is this normal? My d90 lasted months being on but not in use. I could shoot my d90 for a week straight without charging it. What is the d600 doing while it's idle to burn the battery so hard?? Should I send the battery or camera in to nikon or is this just expected behavior and I should buy a spare?
