The big question is: Is there a camera-internal Mini-battery to support the clock and perhaps settings ?

If there is a camera-internal Mini-battery, then it is not great to take the battery out for a long time, because then the camera-internal Mini-battery gets flattened, and this is not good for the camera-internal Mini-battery.

Why? It's no different to running down and charging any other battery. All batteries have a 'cycle' number and life time. Keeping a battery fully charged makes no difference to overall life.

If there is no camera-internal Mini-battery, then you can indeed simply take out the 1130 battery.

I have a tendency to think there is no camera-internal Mini-battery in the Nx300, instead a capacitor, which would not be hurt.

But I like to know it for sure.

On my old Panasonic cameras, there was the camera-internal Mini-battery problem-
