Hi Folks,

Just picked up the external battery grip for my D100 on Friday and shot a few things over the weekend.
My main observation right away is that this grip that allows you to use 6AA batteries certainly does not last as long as the 1 Ion battery without the grip. I maybe shot less than half of the amount of frames with 6 aa's than the 1 little battery before I added the grip.

I do see that it allows you to use the 2 lithium batteries but now that means spending another 80 bucks for a second battery. Am I wrong or doing something incorrectly to use so much power? I'm not constantly using the viewing screen, and I manual focus so I'm perplexed as to why I don't get as much power.

Anything?

Thanks,

John
