well, how do I say it:-)
I am using 5D MkIII and have 4 batteries as I many times go to wilderness for 7-10 days. One battery will last 1200 shots more or less. So it means I need to have 16?

If my kids did that they'd need something to charge their phones every day.😀

There are USB batteries(for phones too!) That fit in a pocket. Someone mentioned small bricks.  One should last you several days at least.

to me, it is the battery. Very surprised that the company does such an amazing thing with the camera overall only to provide a low performing battery with it. Sony is able to get twice as many shots per battery

Is Sony's battery bigger? What is it's Watt Hour specification compared to Canon, If they are the same then it probably means that the Sony electronics are more efficient.

This isn't really an issue though, just pack a couple extra batteries.
