I was wondering if this is normal or not. I have a brand new D7200 and I'm less than impressed with the battery. I've taken around 260 shots, and the battery is down to less than 15%. Apparently the battery should be good for >1000 shots. Things that probably influenced the battery use: Been playing around with the menus quite allot. Did a few (around 15 ) 5s exposures, while 'light painting' with my canon Flash Used the popup flash for around 10 shots Used it outside @ around 10°C for roughly 90 minutes. So I was wondering if the battery performance improves after a few charges. I did charge the battery full before using it for the 1st time. I guess the shop could test the battery and replace it, but I will see if it improves after the next charge. Or am I being paranoid?
