As a new D5300 user, I successfully implemented the wifi capability with it and my iPhone 5. However, I am noticing a quite substantial "hit" on battery life! For example, at 100% charged, after only a few (10) exposures using wifi, the battery drops to 35%. Is this normal? Perhaps a firmware update will improve this, although I don't expect to being using that feature much regardless, as I usually post process my images before distributing anyway, and the ML-3 IR remote works just fine.
Thank you.
