"RE: D4 Battery problem ?"

Neal,
Thanks for the tip on the network connection setting! Mine was on !

The last time I was shooting I got about 700 images before I replaced the battery. It was at about 90% used. This was with the Network search on.

Mine also seems to drain the battery while off in the bag! Seems to me I have excessive current draw with it in the off position.

I guess I need to really gather some data on this unit before it does out of warranty.

The last Nikon I had battery life issues with was with my D200 it was lousy!
