"Battery info"


IL
          

Yesterday I shot with my D7100 a total of 1,110 photos.
My image quality was set for Raw(large) and JPG(basic).
Checked the Battery info when I finished it had 39% left in the charge.
Way beyond my expectations !!!!!

At the end of the evening I think I saw "Go To Hell" on the camera's back monitor, but I'm not sure.....

Just curious as to what battery you are using. The Nikon or an after market variety? Regardless you achieved great performance.

cheers

It was the Nikon EN-EL15.
I later bought another spare Nikon EN-EL15 battery and checked both within a month or two after I bought my D7100 and found that new battery's age was listed as "new" and the age of the original battery that came with camera was 3 out of 4, meaning 75% new.
I was very surprised when I downloaded my photos and then saw I still had 39% "juice" left.

I've gotten some surprisingly high numbers of pics from a fully charged battery also - not that many, but more than the "average" high number you can find online somewhere. I think it's a matter of never using the back monitor to check your pictures, only shooting raw, perhaps not using vr or other kinds of stabilization, and using manual focus as much as possible.

Yes, camera settings make a big difference but overall the D7x00 series is excellent conserving battery charge duration. I do not use my D7000 as much as I used to be it, and apparently the D7100, share that very modest core power consumption trait.
The figures reported are similar to mine but I do not use the monitor that much, and turn off a lot of in-camera processing but do use VR and AF-S lenses primarily, and seldom use LiveView, chimp or shoot video. Video kills my D800 batteries very quickly. I get 3-4 times the frame count from a fully charged D7000 battery than when used in the D800. If I am shooting an event with both, the extra battery in the grip of the D7000 is used as a spare when needed for the D800 since the two in the D800 are exhausted quicker than the one on the D7000.
So, there are few gadgets that deliver more pleasure and fun per milliwatt than a D7x00 series cameras. If my smartphone had as much battery use efficiency I would be very happy.

I used a SB-800 the entire time with the exception of 20-30 photos. Since this really the first time I used the SB-800 and initially did check my back monitor, but overall it was off all the time.
Used two sets (of 5) Duracell rechargeable on the SB-800. Would have taken an extra set, but didn't think I would need it (always, never enough):-). I had the VR and auto focus on.
