Turning off GPS etc would also help conserve battery.

That's an excellent point.

If you do need GPS, you can fine tune how often the camera updates location.  You can pick a variety of intervals from every second to every 5 minutes.

More frequent updates use more battery, but provide more accurate location if you are moving.

If you need GPS, you can also save battery life by using GPS mode 2.  Unlike mode 1, this turns off GPS when the camera is manually switched off.
