E-M1 good news - but I just don't understand!
Apr 19, 2014

I spent a couple of hours yesterday afternoon shooting some live music acts.  I'm a recent new Olympus and E-M1 owner, and this was my first use of the camera working in this genre.  I just kept shooting and shooting until the shows were over.  At the end of it all, I downloaded 937 raw images to my computer.

However when I realised just how many images I'd shot, another realisation dawned on me - at no time had I changed my camera battery.  What's with that?  I used a freshly-charged, near-new, genuine Olympus battery, but I also had both eye/face focus and image stabilisation running the whole time.

This excellent and very welcome battery performance far exceeds the specification as I understand it.  Is this unusual?  How can it be explained?
