Re: D850 r73 error?

Hey Ed sorry to hear about your trouble. I made myself get into the habit of doing two things before I leave to go shoot anything.

1) Top off my battery/batteries.

2) When I am ready to leave I stop and go through my bag/equipment list to make sure that I mentally go through what I will be shooting and ensure that I have all of the equipment I need to do that. I actually go through and basically touch everything, even if I know the 70-200 is in the Nikon pouch I still verify.

Might be a bit over the top but it is what I do.

Also if is has been a while since you have shot the camera in my experience the actual level of the battery in the top LCD does not always represent what you will get out of it shot count performance wise.

Say it has been 3-4 months as an example, since you shot with the camera, it might still show 3/4 battery life left. Once you get out and start shooting however the battery will more rapidly deplete than a camera that was fully charged three days ago that you shot sown to 3/4 battery life that you then pick up and use again.

Again sorry about the issue you experienced with the low battery.
