I'm in the same boat as Alistair - I shoot with a grip. Last two big shoots I did (MotoGP in October and Superbikes in March), I got over 1500 shots on a charge. Still had plenty left afterwards.

Now see, that makes sense -- you're getting about twice the advertised life of 800. I'm not even getting half that.

What sort of temperatures are you shooting in? Are your camera and batteries new?

The camera and battery arrived last Wednesday. Temperatures have been colder than usual in San Francisco, but most of my shots were taken indoors, so temp isn't really a factor.
