I picked up this camera for those times I do not want to take the Canon 70D and to travel light. I recently took this on a trip to shoot video and time lapse. I was very surprised that it would only shoot 332 photos for a time lapse before the battery died. It was a fresh battery and reading the manual again it is noted that is how many photos per full battery. I did shoot jpg. Does anyone shoot time lapse with this camera? Any tips? What was interesting is that I shot many video clips and Raw photos over a 2 day period and still had half a battery remaining.
