"RE: Best practice to keep the battery charge last longer"
I have seen the same battery drain on 2 rented Nikons--a D600 and a D800 using 4 different batteries. I could get well over 1,000 shots if shot in groups 100 "Continuous" bursts. But when shooting in Live View after about 4 1/2 hours of just sitting in standby mode the battery would be spent.I loved the D800 so much though I bought the company! Well, I bought a D800E that should be here later this week.
