Regardless of batteries and cameras, you deserve some kind of medal for spending so much time with so many children.

Ha! Yes, I feel like burnt toast right now. But looking through these shots, I am a shocked how well these low light shots with moving kids turned out. I will post a few later after some wine.

I updated firmware this morning and then took 20 kindergardeners to the LA Natural History Museum on a field trip. I took 488 (976 if you consider it was writing 2 files)shots on one freshly charged battery. I was shooting RAW+Fine. Before thefirmware fix I was averaging 200 shots. When I first got the camera 2 weeks ago, I was getting about 120 shots with this set up. I noticed it was better and better with each charge. But now, this is fantastic. I am believing the chatter really did put a drain on the battery.

And who took care of the children when you were busy shooting??
Just kidding, post the pics to show us your happy day.
