Hi,

Sounds great to me. Anything over 200 shots sounds good. This, based on film cameras with motor drives and the early digitals as well.

Plus, you don't have to swap batteries in and out to actually get that shot count. The D1 series required that. The chemistry in the battery packs could not keep up. So, at around 100 shots the battery needed swapping. By the time the second pack hit 100, swap them around again and get 50 more shots. Then, swap again. By doing this, one could get 200 shots out of each pack. Fun! But, it worked, and that was what counted (literally).
