Thanks for sharing this info Bill. I didn't realize that the battery life could be better. I could only hope that my camera can behave that way without draining the battery even just for a full day.

I've always thought it had something to do with the newer processor since it takes a lot more computing power to process the NEF files of the D800 and that it has bigger LCD screen compared to the D700 which I used to have.

To get a better data, I just installed a freshly charged battery inside the camera with the grip off and turned "on" the camera to observe and record the drain rate. I'll continue to monitor this and should have more accurate representation within the next several hours.


Regards,

Glenn
