RP battery CIPA rating
The CIPA rating for the RP is 250 shots. I just did two shoots back to back in studio today. I took 1,523 shots and my battery indicator still has two bars showing. I could have easily put over 2k shots on this battery. How are these ratings done and how are they so incredibly wrong? I could see being off by 100 shots maybe, but 2k shots? Ive heard people in reviews say battery life is a concern on the RP as they mention it only takes 250 shots. They are clearly going by the specs and not actually testing it.
I notice the battery drops pretty quick. It all depends on how you shoot.
Batteries also wear out a good amount in a year of use. After a few dozen outings battery life will be noticeably worse.
If the battery estimate was the max possible the first time you used it people would be complaining nonstop.
