Hi, I have had the EOS R for 4 months and fired off 2500 frames using the supplied battery (no movies) and one that I was using in my 5D3 (LP-E36N). I am using the RF 24-105, EF 100-400 II, 100L macro and 16-35 2.8L II.

I am struggling to get 200 frames from a battery charge (specification is 370) which is a pain. I have been through the on-line manual and cannot see any useful tips to improve battery performance. The TDP website talk of 1000 frames per charge which seems impossible.

The new battery should have cycled enough to be at maximum performance and the older one was good enough to get 800 - 1000 frames on the 5D3.

I would appreciate any tips to check the system before I approach Canon. Allan

You simply could have a worn battery. Send the system to canon and have them check it out. Only going to cost you $15 to ship it.
