After shooting for a couple of weeks with the DP2M I have come to the conclusion that whats draining the battery is the length of time the camera is ON.

I have know this for 4 years and written in the my dp1/dp2 advice, would be good if every owner of a new camera would be given a copy of most important things like this!

Nowadays i measure battery life by hours instead of pictures and even carl rytterfalk demonstrated how to use the dp1 with monitor off to take 600 pictures, on my dp2 i managed 800 by shooting away, so the actual shooting doesn't use battery!!

Amazing little camera, extra batteries are cheap:)
