That is good for you. But I am not that luck. I have Z7 and, in my two months experience, I never got more 300 shots for a fully charged battery. I don't know why. I only used AF-S, EVF, and did single shot only each time. I also like to turn off the camera in between shot. Any tips you could share to prolong the battery? Thanks

Make sure wi fi / Bluetooth is turned OFF.

If you don't shoot in JPEG, turn off any processing that you don't need when chimping, such as active D-lighting, auto distortion, diffraction, etc. none of this affects your RAW image.

Also check your power off delay times (custom menu c3), esp the standby timer, screen/EVF brightness settings and set image review to OFF when you don't need it.

If you still get low numbers from a fresh battery, you might want to have it checked by Nikon. Some circuit may be draining it.
