I think I have shot over 1200 in a Tennis Tournament on one battery. I don't use a grip, and always have extra batteries available. In these events I generally shoot 4-8 shot bursts, and chimp plenty ... not excessively, but still ...

What type of event are you shooting?


Many thanks. Swim and dive meets. I accidentally ordered two extra batteries, and not one, so trying to decide whether to return the second one. While nice to have a "spare," if it's not needed would rather buy batteries only when necessary.

Also, I've never used a camera with this frame rate ability.  I could see taking 15-30 shots per dive, and that could add up plenty.
