I've noticed the battery on my SD Q drains while the camera is not used. Within 3 weeks.

My photography has been cut back because of the Covids.I'm older so I limit where I go.

Has anyone else noticed a drainage from lack of use ?? Thanks.

I've noticed that for most mirror less cameras the battery drains faster in the camera then not. Since when you turn off a camera it still remains on long enough to finish writing to card. I suspect whatever circuit is involved must have a measurable drain on the battery.

I'd be curious how hard it might be to measure.

I run 2 milc and 1 dslr. With the Dslr  the battery last for months with usage and sitting. Both Milc lose  charge within a month. Olympus last longer than the Sigma by a couple weeks. I have no idea why
